If you are browsing online to compare options, don’t hesitate to contact the funeral plan providers direct to talk through the options. Don’t feel embarrassed to shop around. Most of us will compare the price of tea and coffee before we buy. It’s only sensible to compare costs for a funeral: something that matters this much and can cost thousands of pounds.

Traditional funeral plans usually differentiate between one level and another in cost on the basis of these things:
|Plan provider||Plan||Cost||View the body||Coffin quality||Distance for collection
|Company A||Standard||£3,500||no||basic||15 miles||hearse|
|Company A||Select||£4,000||9-5||better||20 miles||hearse + limo|
|Company A||Premier||£4,500||flexible||best||50 miles||hearse + 2 limos|
A funeral plan usually only covers some of the costs – like a coffin and hearse, making arrangements and caring for the body. The funeral director usually pays others’ fees on your behalf that you will have to pay back: doctors’ fees for cremation authorisation, gravediggers, minister or Humanist/celebrant for the funeral service. Plans sometimes but not always include a contribution to these fees called ‘disbursements‘.
