What do they normally cover?

There are numerous individual funeral plans. Each plan is designed to meet different needs and contains the arrangements you would expect in a funeral.


Some can also be personalised by including special requests, perhaps a favourite hymn or piece of music.


Some are designed mainly for cremations, while others pay the full cost of a cremation or burial.


If you want an unusual funeral such as woodland burial, burial at sea or a horse drawn hearse, check with the plan provider if this is possible - before paying them any money.


Life policies only cover a contribution towards costs, not the full cost.


Life insurance differs from a funeral plan, as it pays a sum to your relatives upon your death, rather than pay your funeral director directly, to cover the cost of your funeral.


Most basic pre-paid funeral plans will include:

  • The cost of a burial or cremation service

  • A simple coffin, lined and fitted with basic materials

  • Care of the deceased and embalming (preservation of the body prior to the funeral, should close friends and relatives wish to visit)

  • Transport of the deceased from their place of death to a place of rest

  • A hearse (the car in which the coffin is transported)

  • Management of cards, flowers or donations on behalf of the family
