The Shropshire Funeral Plan
About our pre-paid funeral plans Planning ahead for your funeral is one of the most thoughtful and caring things you can do. Some people never get round to discussing funeral wishes with their loved ones, which can lead to all sorts of worry and anxiety when the time comes.
Taking out a Shropshire Funeral Plan is a simple and straightforward way to remove this worry, and it can provide real financial benefits too. Some of the other benefits include:
- Pre-arrange the details of your funeral and record any special wishes, such as hymns, music choice and any other personal touches you would like your plan to include
- Make financial provision for your funeral
- Choose your funeral director in advance
- Ensure your family has access to regulated expert help at what can be a sensitive time.
Our Shropshire Funeral Plan is available to UK residents, and there are no complicated medical forms to complete. You can also appoint a nominated representative who we will keep informed about your plan, according to your instructions.
Our plans cover our costs (as specified in the plan paperwork) as long as we carry out the funeral and your requirements don’t change. You can also make a contribution towards third party costs, such as the cremation fees. These costs are outside of our control. For more information, download our funeral plans brochure.
