What is a funeral plan?

A funeral plan enables you to pay for your funeral in advance at today’s prices and gives you protection against the ever rising costs of funerals. It makes financial sense to secure the price now plus it reduces the emotional stress and the responsibility on relatives who are arranging your funeral.

There are different types of plan dependent on your wishes. The plans are usually characterised by limitations to the Chapel of Rest visitations, the number of limousines required and number of pall bearers together with the inclusion or exclusion of disbursements. Plans usually cover cremation in their standard form but can be tailored for burial instead. We offer Safe Hands Funeral Plans which give a very competitive service at an affordable price, with a choice of the following plans:
