Planning ahead by taking out a prepaid funeral plan is a popular option for lots of people. Although a sensitive subject, many people are now acknowledging the inevitable by choosing to think more closely about their affairs and plan for when that time comes.
For those that want peace of mind, it can be comforting to know that financial provision has been made for funeral costs and that your funeral wishes have been noted, reducing the worry for loved ones at what can be a distressing and emotional time. We know that there are many different ways to finance a funeral and a prepaid plan is just one of them.
Evergreen Funeral Services are proud to offer funeral plans from one of the UK’s leading funeral plan providers Ecclesiastical Planning Services. With no upper age limits or health restrictions, anyone over the age of 18 can take out a prepaid funeral plan and the process is very easy, with the option to pay by lump sum or in instalments over 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 years.
Once you’ve taken out a prepaid funeral plan, as long as we carry out your funeral and your requirements don’t change, our funeral director’s fees are guaranteed to be covered by us no matter how long you live. The plans can also include a contribution towards third party fees such as cremation or burial costs, minister fees and doctor’s fees (often called disbursements). These costs are outside of our control and cannot be guaranteed. With our plans, everything including the management fee paid to Ecclesiastical Planning Services, is clearly broken down so you can see what your money covers and what it will go towards when the plan is redeemed.
We offer both set and bespoke plans which are tailor made to your specifications, so you can rest assured that whatever your wishes, we can provide a funeral plan to accommodate this. Because our prices are packaged based on local prices, not the national averages, they provide a cost effective way of planning for a funeral in the future.
What about a green funeral plan?
For the eco-conscious we offer our funeral plans with environmentally friendly options such as a naturally sustainable coffin or biodegradable ashes urn. One person’s interpretation of green is often very different from another’s so we will work with you to create a plan that best represents your individual needs and wishes.
