Many people wish to provide for their own funeral, taking the burden away from family and friends. A Pre-Paid Funeral Plan is a safe, sensible, and cost effective way to do so.


One advantage of a Pre-Paid Plan over a saving account or a life insurance policy is that you can pay now at today's price and beat inflation, no matter when the service might be required.


Funeral pre-payment plans are provided by Ecclesiastical Planning Services which is part of the Ecclesiastical group. Ecclesiastical has been protecting people, property and funds since 1887, Ecclesiastical is a registered provider of the Funeral Planning Authority and adheres to its code of practice. The funeral plans we offer give you exceptional financial security and ring-fenced for your peace of mind.
