Prepaid funeral review


Another price rise of around 10% announced by Golden Leaves.

With prepaid Funeral Plans, things are not always what they seem..

And that is why we exist, to give INDEPENDENT advice on prepaid funerals (sometimes called Funeral Bonds) so you can make the best use of your savings, and not fall for a sales pitch from a company rep.

On another tack, I have just had an interesting chat with our researcher, Julie, about the state of the Funeral Plan market (and the value of our free advice) and she says the gap in cost between broadly equivalent plans from different providers is getting wider and wider. But the plans are not always as similar as they seem.

If you are looking to buy a funeral plan, it makes sense to take Independent Advice – especially as it costs you nothing.   01323 740844 is the number.

This page is updated fairly regularly as prices change, and with breaking news, but the best thing to do is to give us a call when you are ready to invest i a funeral plan.  They will probably be more expensive next month!

Prepaid Funeral Plans for single people – another interesting development.

These funeral plans are not for everyone, but imagine you are single, have no relatives within reasonable distance and don’t want a memorial service.  If that were the case, you might want a low cost funeral plan where you are just whisked away to a crematorium (not necessarily local) and (if you wish) your ashes can be available.   Very far from being suitable for everyone, but I can see a place for it, but please be sure that it won’t upset family and friends before you ask us to advise on this sort of inexpensive funeral plan.  Julie will be pleased to review your situation with you.

More Prepaid Funeral Plan / Funeral Bond Price Rises.

Funeral Planning Services have raised their prices quite significantly, so yet again we have to review our “best buy” tables – for the second time in just one month!  Don’t be misled by the term “best buy” – there is no one best funeral plan, they are all different.  Different exclusions, different in the areas they cover, the benefits are never the same, some don’t have an undertaker anywhere near you. The list of hidden differences is endless, which is why we do a proper review with you before making a recommendation.  As ever, the sooner you move some of your savings into a funeral plan, the bigger the savings are likely to be.

Prepaid Funeral Review for You:

There are also some interesting developments in funeral plans for folk who just want to be whisked away with no fuss at low cost.  But make sure it won’t upset the family!  Ideal for folk with no UK relatives to sort things out.

Our researcher Julie is hard at work reviewing the pricing structure for recommendations in view of the annual price rises by at least one of the major players: most months there are changes, and three or four times a year everything has to be redone.   One Funeral Plan or Funeral Bond may be a best buy in March, then drop down the tables for a few months until the other firms catch up with their prices rises,   Then someone completely revamps their plans, or introduces a new one, and all the research has to be redone!

It may be news to you, but prepaid funeral plans are FAR from being all the same, and making a mistake when choosing your funeral plan can be very expensive – usually for those left behind.   As far as we are aware, the Prepaid Funeral Review is the only place you can get independent advice.  So why not at least download our enquiry form, or give us a ring?  At the very least it will give you a list of questions to ask that very nice salesperson pushing their own range of funeral plans – which may be the least suitable for you.   But you can find out, with our help, which is the most suitable.

If you aren’t ready to buy, just download our enquiry form which will help you to decide what you need, and return it when you are ready.

50+ Funeral Plans

Their adverts say:

With a 50+ prepaid funeral plan our clients can benefit from:

  • Outstanding value and security
  • Flexible ways to pay
  • No medical questions
  • Peace of mind, knowing that everything is taken care of in advance

Funeral cost inflation continues to rise nearly 3 times as fast as general inflation.   That means that the “return” on moving some of your savings from a savings account paying interest at Bank Rate could go up nearly fourteen times, resulting in a big saving.  A savings account is unlikely ever to keep up with the rapidly increasing cost of funerals. 

Prepaid Funeral Review: prices on the rise again

So why not get organised NOW – prices will never be this low again! And the Prepaid Funeral Review team will help you get the best plan for your money – and they are all different!

The Prepaid Funeral Review is the right place if you are looking for sound information about prepaid funeral plans.  Prepaid funeral plans really are very different from each other under the glossy surface. The Prepaid Funeral Review is independent  of all the prepaid funeral plan providers.   We set out to give you an independent  prepaid funeral review of the plans available in the UK.  If you want to simplify the process and get advice rather than reading  through the site yourself,  for the Word version of the Prepaid Funeral Review checklist or here for the PDF Prepaid Funeral Review checklist.  The advantage of the Word version is that you can fill it in, save it, then email it back to us when you are ready to buy your prepaid funeral plan.

Why the Prepaid Funeral Review?

There are lots of varying features on which to choose a prepaid funeral plan.   Some plans have a tremendous sales pitch and massive disadvantages, others have modest extras which can make all the difference in your precise circumstances – but be pointless to another person.   It is about in-depth knowledge and finding out what you need. The Prepaid Funeral Review will help you decide which of these issues matter most to you so that you can make an informed choice and make the right choice of plan for you unique circumstances.  Too many people buy from the first leaflet they come across, or send off for lots of brochures (and then get totally confused!)  The Prepaid Funeral Review even offers a personal advice service if you don’t have the time to study the site in detail.

Rather than the first funeral plan you come across, which may not be the most right one for YOU, why not let us guide you through the maze?
