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).

  • Care of the deceased
  • visit to chapel of rest.
  • Veneered coffin, with name plate
  • transport of the deceased to the crematorium.
