Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone can apply for a funeral plan. We do not ask you to complete a health questionnaire. To apply for a low-cost instalment plan you must be under 78 on application

We offer a range of payment options including:

  • Advance payment in one lump sum
  • 12 monthly payments
  • Fixed term monthly payments (based on your age at time of application)
  • Low-cost instalments (term ranging between 2-30 years)

It is possible to make special requests. If your requests incur additional charges, it may be possible to add the cost to the total price of your funeral plan (unless you pay via instalments).

The chosen payment plan will affect what happens in the event that you die before you have made all the payments. All plans come complete with terms and conditions which detail the terms based on your payment option.

When the time comes, your family will need to make just one phone call to the funeral director. Your membership pack will contain all the details including your membership number which will need to be quoted. Once the funeral director has been informed, they will carry out the arrangements as documented in the plan.
