Rest Assured Funeral PlansThe Rest Assured Elm Plan at £2,699.

This is Rest Assured Funeral Plans basic plan covering the undertakers fees only (so the family would need to find the full third-party costs at the time of death). Most firms offer a similar plan, so that is not a criticism, it is just that you need to properly understand what you are buying. Cost is reasonable.

What is included?

  • Collection of the deceased.
  • Care of the deceased
  • visit to the chapel of rest.
  • Veneered coffin, with a nameplate
  • transport of the deceased to the crematorium.
  • A funeral hearse plus 4 bearers
  • service at the crematorium/cemetery.

They also have a direct cremation plan though they don’t indicate a price. As usual, their prepaid plans have advantages and disadvantages, and whilst no one should take out a plan if they may need to cancel it or not complete the instalments, Rest Assured Prepaid Plans do have a substantial penalty if you do.
