Rest Assured Funeral Trust Review 2019

Rest Assured Funeral Plans are fairly new to the market.

Rest Assured Funeral PlansThe Rest Assured Elm Plan at £2,500.

So far, we know that they have a basic plan covering the funeral directors 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.  They also have a direct cremation plan though they don’t indicate a price.

The Rest Assured Oak Funeral Plan at £3,400.

Funeral Plans are not all the sameThis adds a slightly posher coffin and an allowance for third-party costs such as the crematorium or interment (digging and backfilling the grave) fee, doctor and minister/ celebrant.

The Rest Assured Cedar Funeral Plan at £3,700.

Adds a limousine for the family.

The Rest Assured Mahogany Funeral Plan at £3,995.

Adds a second limousine and an oak veneered coffin (they seem to have got the names a bit confused!!)

We are pleased to see that the Rest Assured Trust is entirely independent of the Funeral Plan sales company, with no shared directors. Not all providers ensure quite this level of independence.
