Funeral Plans

Have you considered taking out a Funeral Plan?

It is sometimes easy to feel overwhelmed by television commercials, magazine articles and high street establishments trying to persuade you that it’s the right thing to do. Duncan Robinson Funeral Services can answer all your questions and put you at ease by finding the right plan for you.

Taking out a funeral plan is simple, and one of the most thoughtful things that you can do for you or a member of your family.  By planning ahead, you decide on all the main details, so there’s no uncertainty and fewer stressful decisions for your family later on.  It also means that you can save your family the worry of funeral costs and beat rising funeral prices.

If you feel that a funeral plan is for you, we will arrange this with you in collaboration with Open Prepaid Funeral Plans.  You can specify your wishes and take care of the cost of the funeral in advance.  The money you pay will be held in trust until the time of the funeral, when it will be paid directly to us here at Duncan Robinson Funeral Services.  The only cost held by Open Prepaid Funeral Plans is a small administration charge.

You may have savings or an insurance policy to pay for the cost of your funeral, but there is no guarantee that this will cover the total cost of your funeral when the time comes, meaning your family may need to make up the shortfall.  With an Open Prepaid Funeral Plan, you lock the cost of the Funeral Director’s services and disbursements included in your plan at today’s prices.  However much these costs increase in the future, your family will have nothing more to pay once your plan is fully paid.

Open Prepaid Funeral Plans work with over 3,000 independent Funeral Directors, so there are no sales agents or other third parties taking a commission, which can be up to £1,000.  It also means that if you move from the area, your funeral plan moves with you.  You will also have the reassurance of personal service and support from a trusted, local Funeral Director.

If you would like to discuss the various funeral plans available, why not contact us on 01729 825 444 or fill out our contact form.  We can arrange to meet with you, either at our Chapel of Rest or happy to visit you in your home, to advise the best plan that suits you and to put a costing together.
