The Limited Plan

The Limited Funeral Plan guarantees to cover all the essential services required for a funeral including funeral director services and the cremation costs as listed in the Plan. Alternatively, if a burial is required, a contribution is provided towards these costs.

With a Limited Funeral Plan restrictions apply to the day and time of the funeral, as well as number of funeral directors within our network available for this type of plan. It is also not possible to make a contribution towards any special requests.

What is Restricted in the Limited Plan

  • There is a restricted choice from approximately 800 Funeral Directors
  • You may not make any additional contributions towards the costs of any special requests
  • Not available on the Isle of Man
  • A restricted choice of date and time for the funeral will be available (^Typically this means that with the Limited Funeral Plan the service will take place before 10:30am or after 3:30pm Tuesday-Thursday)

What is Not Covered in a Dignity Funeral Plan

  • Medical certification fees. For deaths where a coroner investigation is required, there are no medical certification fees. Also, changes to legislation in May 2015 mean there will no longer be a charge for a medical certification for any deaths registered in Scotland. Similar legal changes are being considered for the rest of the UK, so we do not include provision for these fees in our Plans. If the funeral takes place outside of Scotland, and a coroner is not involved, then if applicable, the medical certification fees must be paid by the next of kin or personal representative, when arranging the funeral.
  • Embalming, burial plot, memorial or headstone, flowers, catering/wake.
  • Repatriation from outside mainland Great Britain, Northern Ireland, Jersey, Isle of Man and Isle of Wight.
  • Costs for removing artificial limbs and mechanisms such as pacemakers.
  • Costs associated with changes in regulations, tax, laws or generally accepted practice, which result in additional costs or affect the conduct of the funeral.

This list is not exhaustive, so please refer to the Terms & Conditions for further information.

Normal office hours are 9:00am - 5:00pm
