Basic Plan summary

Service                                             Burial

 

Funeral plans do not include the cost of a burial or cremated remains plot, because the price varies hugely depending on where you live and plot type.  

it is sometimes possible to include a contribution amount to go towards the cost of a plot.  Call us on 02920 099 200 if f this is an option you would like to explore. 

Ceremony                                      Yes   |   Attended

 

With ceremony.  Attended.

A funeral traditionally includes a ceremony for family and friends to attend, immediately followed by the cremation or burial.   For an attended funeral and no restrictions on the number of people who can attend, look for plans in the SimpleTraditional and Bells & Whistle categories.

No ceremony.  Attended.

For people wanting a less expensive attended funeral and a practical alternative to the formalities of a traditional funeral, then choosing a plan that doesn’t include a ceremony is the best choice.  Funeral plans in the No Fuss category allow up to 12 people to attend, and just enough time for them to say their goodbyes before the coffin is removed from view.  

 No ceremony.  Unattended.

For people looking for the least expensive funeral plan and a practical alternative to the formalities of a traditional funeral, the unattended, no ceremony funeral plan in the No Frills category is the ideal choice.  The cremation or burial takes place at a time that is suitable to the funeral director. No-one else is present.  This type of funeral plan gives those you leave behind the freedom to choose to celebrate your life when, where and how they wish, outside the confines of a crematorium or burial setting.

Family cars                                     0

Family cars typically carry 6 - 7 passengers.
