What is a funeral plan?

If you’ve never really thought about a funeral plan before, it’s worth taking a few minutes to find out exactly what they are and why so many people choose to have one.

A prepaid funeral plan is the easy way to arrange and pay for the essential elements of your funeral in advance, knowing that all the details are already taken care of.

By choosing a prepaid funeral plan, you can select all of your key funeral arrangements, such as the number of limousines or the type and style of coffin, ensuring your final wishes are carried out seamlessly to minimise stress to your loved ones.

You can compare Avalon’s most popular UK funeral plans or create your own personalised plan.

Plans can be purchased for up-front or paid in monthly instalments, offering competitively priced and flexible solutions for your budget.

Then, when the time comes, we will inform your Funeral Director, who will make the arrangements, and we pay the fees.

Prepaid funeral plans can also be bought for others. Many of our plans are purchased for spouses or parents for peace of mind and to ensure the policy holder can plan their own funeral arrangements.

With a prepaid funeral plan in place, your loved ones can celebrate your life without the worry of rising funeral costs or the added pressure of making difficult decisions about funeral arrangements.
