Funeral Planning Services
Funeral Planning Service Ltd started in 1995 and provided a range of pre-payment plans for clients of any age and state of health, with independent directors throughout the UK. Payments are held in Funeral Planning Trust, with Capita Trust Company Ltd as Custodian Trustee. They are no longer taking on new business just managing the plans which had been previously sold under a variety of names but where the funds were invested in “The Funeral Planning Trust.” That company is no longer called Funeral Planning service as that name was sold, it is now called FPS 1995 Ltd. New business was transferred to Ecclesiastical Planning Services.
Funeral Planning Service and Trust have been taking care of funeral prepayments since 1995.
Thousands of people hold a plan administered by Funeral Planning Service and backed by Funeral Trust, usually purchased through a local independent director or a will writer.
Funeral Trust closed to new business in April 2017 and all new plans are handled by Ecclesiastical Planning Services Limited.
Funeral Planning Services administers the plans held in Trust: collecting instalment payments, recording address changes, paying refunds if plans are cancelled and, most importantly, paying for ceremonies.
If you have an enquiry about the administration of an existing plan please contact FPS 1995 Ltd. If you want to discuss whether your plan is right for you please contact the director or will writer you purchased it from.

Funeral Planning Services Old Plans.
This was their blurb, which is pretty similar to most plans – few people understand the finer points of such plans as well as our Review Team.
- With Funeral Planning Service, you can choose your own arrangements, for your own peace of mind. (To be fair, the same is true of most plans except direct cremations!)
- Save your family from having to make difficult decisions, and trying to guess what you would have wanted, at such a distressing time.
- Choose from a comprehensive range of options with fixed prices.
- Avoid rising costs with an inflation-proof guarantee.
- Financial security – all payments to Funeral Planning Services are held in the Planning Trust until required, held by a professional custodian trustee, monitored by independent auditors and registered with the Funeral Planning Authority.
- The service will be provided by a local director.
- There is no age limit and there are no awkward health questions.
- Pay the current price within three months or pay by monthly instalments over a number of years – whichever suits you.
The Prepaid Funeral Review says: take independent advice on your choice of prepaid plan, don’t gamble. Go HERE to see if Funeral Planning Services plans are right for you and download our questionnaire. If you are keen to move ahead, ring the Prepaid Funeral Review team on 0800 0588 240. Our questionnaire will help you consider which benefits are most important to you – and all the plans on offer their own unique set of features. When we receive your enquiry we’ll check it against our features and benefits database and recommend what we believe to be the most suitable plan for you. All we ask is that if you decide to accept our advice, you buy the plan through us. In the unlikely event that you find the recommended plan cheaper elsewhere, let us know and we’ll try to renegotiate the price for you.
