How does a prepaid funeral plan work?

A prepaid funeral plan lets you avoid the larger future costs of a funeral by taking care of these costs in advance and fixing the funeral services in the plan at today’s prices.

The cost of your funeral plan is determined by the elements it contains. You may choose anything from a basic plan to a more premium provision.

Obviously, it’s better to arrange your funeral plan with a financially stable and secure organisation that will be around in the years to come to deliver the services in your plan when it’s needed. However, these aren't the only deciding factors. You want to know that your chosen funeral plan provider will look after the money you pay for your plan safely and securely, and will provide a professional and high quality service for your loved ones in the future.

A Dignity Prepaid Funeral Plan gives you added peace of mind

You don’t need to worry about low savings rates or changing inflation rates when you fix your funeral costs with a Dignity Prepaid Funeral Plan.

Our plans guarantee to cover the services of the funeral director and the cost of a cremation funeral service, as included in the plan.

The money you pay for your plan is held securely in an independent Trust Fund until it is needed.

Dignity is a large, financially secure organisation; but every Dignity Funeral Director is a local business, with local ties. We offer a caring, professional and reliable service which we can guarantee across all our network of owned or approved funeral directors, making things easier for your loved ones, whenever in the future our services are needed.
