A bespoke plan for your funeral

To purchase an Unattended Cremation Plan, please contact us on 01803 298 243.

You will have the option to add Voluntary Contributions to the Choice Essentials and Choice Plus Plans. Your funeral cannot take place without payment being made for essential Third Party Fees, these variable external costs may include doctors, celebrant/minister and cremation or burial fees. These costs are beyond the control of the Funeral Director and are not included in the Funeral Plan. Payment will be required at the time of the funeral.

You can contribute as much or as little as you like now, with the option to add in the future. You can also make contributions towards other products and services such as flowers, limousines, other vehicles, and funeral stationery. Depending upon the amount of Voluntary Contributions you make this amount may or may not be sufficient to pay for Third Party Fees and Additional Products & Services, therefore, additional costs may need to be paid for when the Funeral Plan is redeemed. Prices will be charged at the prevailing rate at the time of redemption.

Personal Details

After deciding on the financial details of your plan you will have the opportunity to state your personal wishes, such as hymns and readings, music to be played at the funeral and charities you may want people to make donations to.

We’ll ask for some details of the person who is purchasing the plan, the ‘customer’, the person who the plan will cover ‘the covered individual’ and the name of someone who you may wish to notify about the plan being in place, known as your ‘nominated representative’.

Paying for your Plan

We’ll summarise everything you have told us and check that the plan meets your needs.

If you are paying in full you will have the option to pay online by credit or debit card, send us a cheque or make a bank transfer. Your plan will be saved in your customer account for your reference and once your plan is activated, we will send you an Information Pack.
