At Which Funeral Plans, we are happy to show you the prices, the hidden details and also savings that you could make by comparing funeral plan providers.

How Funeral Plans Work
All of the major funeral planning companies have UK coverage of funeral directors. Some of the funeral plan companies own their funeral directors such as the CO OP and Dignity / Age UK. If you decide to take your funeral plan with one of these companies they will try to allocate you their most local funeral director, but it is worth checking with us where they will be, they do not have complete coverage of the UK and in some circumstances the funeral directors may be quite a distance away.
Golden Charter will allocate you one of their Funeral Directors and Golden Leaves one of the longest serving funeral plan providers use a whole network of UK funeral directors so they will allocate you one of your local funeral directors.
Very Important is that some of the funeral directors can only sell one particular funeral plan, such as Dignity, CO OP and Golden Charter. Funeral directors however are often happy to accept funeral plans from other funeral planning companies. In these circumstances you can save a substantial amount on your funeral plan and still have the same local funeral director to administer your funeral plan.
It is always worth checking with us at Which Funeral Plans if you would like a specific funeral director to administer your funeral plan as we could often save you money than if you went direct. If you do visit your local funeral director they will often sell you the funeral plan they are contracted too. We can contact them directly on your behalf to check which other funeral plans they may accept.
