Pre-paid funeral plans

Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulation of pre-paid funeralplans – an update as at 21 February 2022.
There is increasing media interest in the funeral planning industry as it moves towards FCAregulation. Our funeral plan provider, Ecclesiastical Planning Services, has applied for authorisationby the FCA and remains positive that it will be authorised from 29 July 2022 when the new regulationbecomes effective.
Ecclesiastical is also supporting a number of other funeral plan providers that do not intend to becomeauthorised by the FCA and wish to make suitable arrangements for their existing funeral plans.
We can confirm that Ecclesiastical’s pre-payment funds remain safe and secure, and we urgecustomers not to be concerned at this early stage. We will provide a further update in due course.

Pre-planning your own funeral

Many people are planning to make arrangements for their own funeral, we are very happy to help and advise you with this.

  • Arranging your own funeral in advance may especially suit those people with no-one capable of making those arrangements at their time of death.
  • For those who have definite wishes about their own funeral and want to make sure their wishes are known and incorporated into the funeral.
  • It can also help to protect the family against rising costs. Once your plan is in place, the Funeral Director’s Fees are covered, as long as we carry out your funeral and your requirements don’t change. You can also make a contribution towards third party disbursements, which are out of our control and cannot be guaranteed.
  • Those who simply want to offer some guidance to their survivors regarding their own funeral arrangements.

If you would like us to guide you through your own funeral arrangements, please let us know. Remember to leave your instructions in a safe place and tell your family or your solicitor.

We offer our own locally packaged and priced funeral plans thus saving your survivors worry at the time of need. All plan funds, minus the management fee, are placed in guaranteed whole of life assurance policies.
