Planning Ahead - Prepaid Funeral Plans

Planning Ahead..

The average cost of a standard cremation funeral today (including a hearse, 1 limousine, 4 bearers, and associated 3rd party fees), is around £3500. Like other trade bodies within the industry, the NFFD have their own pre-paid funeral plan available to help protect individuals and families from the financial burden associated with arranging a funeral.

As the UK’s only trade body committed to increasing the fairness between funeral directors profit margins and the price that consumers are expected to pay, we promote Safe Hands Funeral Plans as THE provider choice for families who are seeking a high quality funeral service at an affordable cost.

Taking out a funeral plan is essentially paying for a funeral in advance. Taking out a funeral plan with Safe Hands (Topaz, Pearl, Sapphire, Ruby) means that no longer how long the plan-holder lives, or whatever the price of the funeral director’s fees and services are when the plan-holder dies, there will never be anything extra for the family or estate to contribute.

Safe Hands Funeral Plans work with a national network of professional will-writers, financial advisors and solicitors who offer their plans as part of their estate planning services. Safe Hands Funeral Plans can also be purchased directly from Safe Hands (0800 917 7099), or you can purchase them through one of the hundreds of NFFD funeral director members nationally.


Are you a funeral director?

Did you know that if you’re a funeral director and you choose Safe Hands as your plan provider, when your plan-holders pass away you will pay a far smaller administration fee than you would through ALL other providers?

Whether you sell Safe Hands fixed-price plans, or their bespoke ‘Funeral Director’s Choice’ plans, when a plan holder dies you are guaranteed to receive the full value of the plan as paid by the plan holder (plus trust fund uplift) minus an administration fee of just £75!

Whether you’re a funeral director or a consumer and you would like more information about Safe Hands Funeral Plans, please contact 0800 917 7099 or email
