Funeral Pre-Payment Plans
Our chosen funeral pre-payment provider is 'Perfect Choice Funeral Plans', brought to you by Ecclesiastical Planning Services, part of the Gloucester-based Ecclesiastical Insurance Group. Ecclesiastical is a specialist, UK-based financial services group which has been protecting people, property and funds since it was founded in 1887.
Partnering with Perfect Choice enables us to offer a properly underwritten and administered pre-payment facility. We are not restricted to selling pre-packaged plans at nationally fixed prices, and are free to set our own prices and agree plan specifications with our clients in the same way we do for 'at need' funerals. The client's funeral instructions are then held on file, with the client receiving their own copy. Meanwhile, the payment for the funeral is invested in a 'Whole of Life Assurance Policy'. This guarantees cover for future increases in the funeral director's fees, whilst the amount paid towards 'disbursements' (third party fees such as doctors, clergy, crematoria, etc.) will rise in line with the Retail Price Index.
Ecclesiastical Planning Services is a registered provider of, and regulated by, the Funeral Planning Authority and adheres to its Code of Practice.
Purchasing a plan
Simply contact us and arrange an appointment to meet with one of our funeral directors, either at our office or your home. We will then discuss your individual requirements and submit a bespoke quotation of expenses. If the quotation is acceptable to you, we will proceed with setting up your plan. There is no pressure or obligation at any stage. Payment can be made either as a lump sum or as instalment payments via direct debit.
