Pre-paid Funeral Plans
In addition to those people who need our help immediately, we are also able to assist those who wish to arrange and pay for their own funeral in advance.
The Ivan Fisher Pre-Payment Funeral Plan is available to those who want the peace of mind that they will receive the type of funeral they would like, whilst knowing that at difficult time their loved ones will have fewer difficult decisions to make.
One of the big advantages of a pre-payment plan over a savings account or life insurance policy is that you can pay now, at today’s price and no matter when our services might be required we can guarantee that our costs as the funeral director will be covered. There will be nothing more to pay as long as your requirements don’t change and we carry out your funeral.
Our plans also include a contribution to essential third party costs, reducing the worry for your family at the time of need. You will also have the peace of mind that your money is held securely and ring-fenced for your funeral when the time comes.
Our funeral pre-payment plans are provided by Ecclesiastical Planning Services Limited which is part of the Ecclesiastical Group and a registered member of the Funeral Planning Authority. Every penny of the full value of your plan (excluding the initial management fee) is held securely to pay for your funeral, and your funeral wishes will be clearly documented.
There is no age limit, no awkward health questions, and unlike many insurance policies, when you have paid for your plan, you do not continue paying for life.
Paying for your plan couldn’t be simpler, you can choose to pay in one lump sum or spread the cost over 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 years to suit you.
We appreciate just how daunting and confusing it can be when it comes to planning a funeral. With this in mind, we have designed our plans to be as simple as possible to make those difficult decisions just that little bit easier.
