The Funeral Planning Authority (FPA) was set up to protect consumers from exploitation and financial loss due to poor business practices of funeral planners.

The FPA sets certain criteria to which registered funeral plan providers must adhere; these rules aim to ensure that your money is as safe as possible, even with the inherent risks of funeral plans (such as the company going out of business before your death).

Companies that are registered with the FPA tend to be specialist funeral planning associations, often linked to local funeral directors.

The FPA is the self-regulatory body to ensure that:

  • Funeral plan providers maintain high standards of professional conduct
  • The money that customers pay to a plan provider for a funeral plan is safeguarded so that, when the time comes, their funeral will be provided in accordance with that plan
