Green Funeral Plans – Standard and other options
A green funeral plan can come in a million varieties, but here are some standard options which we have pre-researched. If these options fit with your needs, just note the relevant options on the form at the bottom of the page. Or give us a call on 0800 0588 240 and tell us what you would like and we will research that for you. But please do not expect green prepaid plans to be cheaper than normal ones – they are more expensive! The example we have given below is just one variation, and if you are ready to buy we will scour the market to find a good prepaid provide who will be willing to offer you just what you want at a reasonable price. If you are not quite ready, we can give you a generalised quote so you have an idea of costs.
You may take out a standard Green Funeral Plan at any age without a medical or health-check. It is a simple process to organise a green funeral plan today, and then get on with avoiding using it as long as possible!
There are three standard eco funeral plans to choose from, though other providers offer bespoke plans, so it is very much a matter of discussing your individual needs. But do be aware that environmentally friendly plans are NOT a cheaper alternative.
From the table below you can see the services provided by the funeral director, the number of vehicles required and the type/ style of coffin selected. The Cost of the Funeral Director’s services are guaranteed to be met in full by these plans.
