Now you can really have the final say with the Coop Funeral Plans
A new funeral planning service which enables people to write and pay for their own epitaph in advance has been launched) by The Co-operative Funeralcare.
With more people electing to arrange a personalised funeral, The Co-operative Funeralcare, the UK’s largest provider of funeral planning products, is giving people the chance to say exactly how they would like to be remembered by choosing and writing their own lasting memorial.
The pioneering memorial masonry plan, the first of its kind, will give consumers the ability to choose the type of lasting memorial they want. There are many types of memorials available, from traditional headstones to slate sculptures.
This plan now means you can choose the material, colour, style, lettering and write the actual inscription for your memorial and pay for it in advance at today’s masonry prices, avoiding any future increases.
The cost of a memorial masonry plan will vary depending on the choice made and the geographical area as the plan will incorporate fees for your specific cemetery or remembrance garden. There is no limit to the length of an inscription, other than the space available on the memorial.
Ian Mackie of The Co-operative Funeral Planning, says:” With the new Memorial Masonry Plans we take paying in advance for a funeral one step further by enabling people to decide the memorial they want and what actually appears on it. Some local authorities do have restrictions on the type of memorial allowed, but our team will advise on the options available. The plan ensures family members are not left with the emotional and financial burden of making these decisions at a very difficult time.”
