About our pre-paid funeral plans

Planning ahead for your funeral is one of the most thoughtful and caring things you can do. Some people never get round to discussing funeral wishes with their loved ones, which can lead to all sorts of worry and anxiety when the time comes.

Taking out a funeral plan is a simple and straightforward way to remove this worry, and it can provide real financial benefits too. Some of the other benefits include:

  • Pre-arrange the details of your funeral and include any special wishes
  • Make financial provision for your funeral
  • Choose your funeral director in advance
  • Ensure your family has access to expert help and advice at a difficult time

What’s more, there are no complicated medical forms to complete.

Our plans cover our direct costs (as specified in the plan paperwork) as long as we carry out the funeral and your requirements don’t change. You can also make a contribution towards third party costs, such as the fees for cremation or burial. These costs are outside of our control and cannot be guaranteed.

For more information, please download our funeral plans brochure.

One of the main reasons to take out one of our funeral plans is because they provide outstanding financial security for your money. All funeral plan pre-payments are held securely in individual whole of life assurance policies for your peace of mind.

Perfect Choice Funeral Plans are available directly from Hedley Jackson Funeral Directors, we are members of the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD).

Members of NAFD conduct more than 80% of all funerals in the UK.

Who is eligible?

UK residents aged 18 or over can take out a plan. There are no medical or health questions to answer.

Can the plan include special wishes?

You can add special wishes and requests such as song choices, readings, information for a eulogy and so on. There is no charge to add these details. There may be more to pay if you require additional features, services or upgrades.

What happens if I move to a different part of the country?

If you move, you should be able to transfer your plan to a funeral director near your new home. However, there may be additional costs depending on local prices. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions for details or speak to a member of the team for more information.

Can I buy a funeral plan for someone else?

Yes, we find that many of our customers choose to do this.

Can I change my funeral plan arrangements?

Yes, you can make changes to your plan after you have taken it out and once it is fully-paid. Just let us know what you wish to change. There may be an additional cost if you add new features and services to your plan.

Does the plan cover the entire cost of the funeral?

The plan covers the funeral director’s costs listed in the plan details as long as your requirements don’t change and your selected funeral director carries out your funeral.

The plan can also include an allowance towards third party costs such as the fees for cremation or burial, medical fees and payment to a minister or officiant. These costs are outside of our control. If these costs, as listed in the plan details, are not covered by the plan value at the time of need, there will be a balance to pay. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions for more information.

Can I cancel my plan?

Yes, you can cancel your plan at any time – Terms and Conditions apply.

Can I pay for my plan by instalments?

Yes, you are able to pay over a range of periods. There is an additional cost for paying by instalments and Terms and Conditions apply.

What happens if I die abroad?

The plan does not cover the cost of a funeral abroad, or the cost of repatriating the deceased. It is therefore important that your travel insurance policy covers this.

Taking out a plan is easy

1. Have a think about how you want to be remembered and decide what services you require.

2. Next, choose whether you want to make a single payment or spread the cost and pay by monthly instalments.

3. Finally, get in touch to complete the application process to take out a plan.

Terms and Conditions apply to funeral plans – please ask us if you have any questions.
