There are many benefits to gain by pre arranging your funeral. A prepaid funeral plan protects you against rising funeral costs. It also helps your loved ones and friends by reducing the stress and financial worry that may occur at the sometimes difficult and emotional time of arranging a funeral.
The cost of a funeral over the last few years has increased greatly, mainly due to the rising fees for doctors, cemeteries, crematoria and clergy. Our funeral plan prices are fixed at today’s costs so you will be protected against future increases in funeral director costs, also by taking out a Bristol Funeral Plan you can rest assured that all your funeral directors services will be paid for in full, regardless of any interim rise in the cost of your funeral director fees.
