What is a Prepaid Funeral Plan?
A prepaid funeral is a way of planning and paying for your funeral in advance to save you and your family time and money when the time comes. This can either be through a lump sum, or by monthly instalments.
Is a Prepaid Funeral Plan a Good Option?
Having a prepaid funeral plan in place is the simplest, most caring and most practical way to remove the financial and emotional worry, as well as the responsibility, that unexpected funeral arrangements can bring.
We are happy to be able to offer our own funeral plans backed by a secure trust.
We are happy to be able to offer our own funeral plans. Backed by a secure trust fund which we have some control over.
Above are brochures and price lists of packages available which we hope are easy to understand. These plans need to have the cost of disbursements added (crematorium/cemetery, officiant etc) and we feel this is better than many other plans which use a national average to calculate a contribution to these fees, which often in this area simply would not be enough.
We understand that a funeral is a very personal occasion, and many people have particular wishes. Should none of these package plans suit your requirements we are able to produce a personalized plan just for you. This will allow for whatever services and products you require.
Simply contact us for a personal interview to discuss such arrangements.
Legal advice from a grocer?
You wouldn't take legal advice from a grocer, would you? Stick with us.
So why would you purchase a funeral plan from anywhere else other than an independent funeral director and ultimately the people carrying out your funeral?
We have been here for six generations so we know a thing or two. We are able to offer knowledgeable advice about all things local and have a wealth of experience of working alongside local cemeteries, crematoriums, church's, venues, ministers, celebrants, care homes, GP surgery's and hospitals.
All this means we have an understanding of what is or isn't possible locally, all the while ensuring accurate costings of these things. This equates to a sound fit for purpose funeral plan. Something which a generic mass sold corporate funeral plan cannot provide.
They think we're mugs!
Did you know that there are lots of individuals and organisations profiteering through commission of the sales of funeral plans! Other funeral plan providers and third-party sellers such as Supermarkets, 'Charity's', Banks, Will Writers, Financial Advisors etc could be taking commission of around £1000.00. Ultimately leaving less funds for your funeral in the future. A RIP OFF, wouldn't you agree?
Peace of mind
Taking out a funeral plan directly from Silletts will ensure all the money you have paid will remain in your funeral plan, giving you peace of mind that you have taken control of your funeral arrangements and taken away financial pressures from your family and loved ones.
