Plan your own

Did you know 100% of us will die?! We know, shocking! Yet so many of us fail to make the provision for the cost of our funeral. Not only does that leave our loved ones with the financial burden, it also leaves them not always knowing what type of funeral we would like. A good funeral is our lasting legacy, it lets our loved ones move forward on their grief journey. We believe that the funeral plans we offer represent the most financially secure and responsibly managed pre-payment option for our customers. This is because EPS “ring-fence” the fund pots and guarantee the funeral pre-payment amount for every plan that is arranged. Provided by Ecclesiastical Planning Services, the funeral pre-payment funds are held securely in whole of life assurance policies that are designed specifically to support funeral pre-payment plans. Ecclesiastical only works with UK-based life assurance companies which are authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and regulated by the PRA and the Financial Conduct Authority.
Our funeral plans from Ecclesiastical offer:
  • Flexible payment options – you can pay for your funeral plan upfront or spread the cost with a range of instalment payment options.
  • Security and peace of mind – the whole funeral pre-payment amount is ring-fenced and secure for extra peace of mind for you.
  • Unlike other providers who guarantee a % return on your plan, 100% of all of the return on investment of funds from EPS, comes back to you. Other plan providers use the excess above the % guarantee fund for marketing of the plans to prospective customers.
  • A special guarantee – the funeral pre-payment amount is guaranteed and will not fall in value irrespective of how the investments perform.
  • Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) – Ecclesiastical, as the plan provider, is an eligible claimant under the FSCS which provides an added level of comfort.
  •  The prospect of outstanding financial returns – the objective is to secure growth in plan values that outstrips inflation.
  •  A fast efficient service – a friendly and dedicated administration support team ensures that new business documentation is issued to the firm and their plan holders within five working days of receiving the correct paperwork. Claims payments are also made within five working days of receiving the appropriate paperwork.
  • To the well organised mind, death is but the next great big adventure
