Funeral Plans
 

Good value funeral plans from an awarding winning funeral director

An increasing number of people are deciding to make their own funeral plans. This ensures not only that their wishes are respected, but it can also reduce some of the anxiety that their loved ones will feel at the time of loss. This leaflet is aimed at helping you to make your own funeral plan.

 

Different ‘packages’ based around your needs

We know that everyone has different needs, so we have put together six different ‘packages’ (each of which can be modified) so that you can choose which fits you best.

Our three Standard Bespoke Plans are extremely flexible and incorporate many options.  All of them include the cost of a hearse; traditional or willow coffin; doctors' fees (if applicable); and celebrant's fee.

Standard Bespoke Cremation Plan from £2589*

Includes crematorium fee.

Standard Bespoke Traditional Burial Plan from £3712*

Includes cost of burial rights, and interment fee, for a new grave in any cemetery run by Sheffield City Council.

Standard Bespoke Woodland Funeral Plan from £3180* 

Includes burial rights and interment fee in a 'no-tree' plot at either South Yorkshire or Golden Valley Woodland Burial Ground.

 

In addition, we offer two Direct Funeral Plans that represent the ultimate in simplicity.  They are aimed at people who do not want anyone to attend their funeral.

 

Direct Cremation Plan from £2088*

Also includes crematorium fee.

 

Direct Woodland Burial Plan from £2865*

Includes burial rights and interment fee in a 'no-tree' plot at either South Yorkshire or Golden Valley Woodland Burial Ground.

 

The sixth package is very distinctive - the Railway Funeral Plan.

Funeral in the Future, paid for Today

If you take out a Funeral Plan with Peace Funerals, you pay at today’s prices for your funeral in the future. This will guarantee that, no matter what happens to inflation, all the funeral director’s costs will be covered in full at the time of the funeral. Increases in other costs that are paid on your behalf by your funeral director, called disbursements (such as crematorium, or cemetery, fees; doctors fees; and newspaper costs), will be covered up to the level of the Consumer Price Index increases1. So whether your funeral takes place in twelve months, or thirty years, there is nothing more to pay for the funeral director’s services that you have chosen.

Full Security for Your Funds

When you take out a Peace Funerals Plan, the payment that you make is paid into the Ethical Funeral Plans Trust Fund. This makes your funds totally secure. So whatever happens in the future, the funds will be there to pay for your funeral at the time of need.

 

Your Wishes in Safe Hands

All Funeral Plans are provided by Peace Funerals working in conjunction with the Ethical Funeral Plans TrustPeace Funerals are previous winners of the ‘Best Funeral Directors in the UK Award’.  The Ethical Funeral Plans Trust is one of the few Funeral Planning Trusts committed to investing your plan funds ethically.

 

And You Choose the Way that You Pay

 

If you would like to pre-pay for your Funeral Plan by lump sum, you can pay by cheque, BACS transfer, or by card.

 

If you prefer, you can pay by monthly instalments over any period from twelve months to five years. If you choose to pay over twelve months, there is no interest payable. Thereafter, interest is payable at the rate of 6% per annum compound.

 

Getting it Arranged

If you would like further information about our Funeral Plans please get in touch to make an appointment.

We will then arrange a time when you can call in to talk through your funeral wishes, or we can arrange a telephone appointment. The meetings and phone calls usually last about thirty minutes.

A few days after discussing your wishes, we will send you a written record and a quote. We will also send you a Funeral Plan payment form for you to complete if you wish to go ahead. You can then send it back to us, with payment or a standing order mandate. It’s as simple as that.

(In special cases, we can make home visits locally, at no additional cost, to discuss your Funeral Plan. Please ask about this service, if this is what you require.)
