Advantages of our Pre-Paid Plan
Why should we think about paying for our own funeral?
"Most of us, as we get older, expect to provide the money to meet our funeral expenses. We're not morbid. It's to do with independence and responsibility. Leaving everything in order for our relatives and friends. We don't often talk about it - because there's no need to - but the fact is that funerals cost money, and we want to take care of the cost."
Many people wish to provide for their funeral expenses and a funeral prepayment plan is a caring, sensible and cost-effective way to do so. The advantage of an Arthur Jary & Sons prepayment plan over a savings account or life insurance policy is that you can pay now, at today's price, and beat inflation - no matter when the service might be required. Our fees will be paid by Funeral Planning Trust at the time of the funeral.

Each plan includes a contribution towards other expenses, such as burial or cremation fees, minister's fees etc. - these fees are known as "disbursements". This is intended to cover most if not all of the usual disbursements, but please note that they are outside of our control and cannot be guaranteed. The amount included for disbursements will be increased annually in line with the Retail Prices Index. You can include a larger (or smaller) contribution towards disbursements if you wish - please ask if you need advice on this point.
A funeral is a very personal matter and many people have particular wishes. If none of these plans suit you requirements then please let us know and we will prepare a personalised plan just for you, to allow for whatever services you require.
Choosing is easy - just select a plan and note any special wishes on the application form, or discuss a fully personalised option with us, to meet your exact requirements.
