It is always best to check with us at Which Funeral Plans if you have any questions or queries as it's possible to add a limousine to a Simple plan or an additional limousine to a Traditional plan for example. 
 
The main difference between the types of funeral plans is the addition of a following limousine behind the hearse for family members and the quality of the coffin. 
 
Most often the simple plan would be a basic wood effect or similar coffin with just the hearse for the deceased.  
 
The traditional type of funeral plan would normally be have a standard oak veneered coffin or similar with one following limousine behind the hearse for family members. 
 
The comprehensive plan usually includes two following limousines and 
frequently a solid or superior wood coffin. 
 
There are other differences between the types of funeral plans however, the above are the main points that make up the cost difference between the funeral plans.

"When in doubt Which sort it out!" 
Ploughing through all the funeral plans, and getting more and more confused, especially as we have a burial plot in another county, Which Funeral Plans sorted this out efficiently, expertly explaining everything so simply. Felt relieved to have sorted it all out and was left without anymore worries. Would recommend this service to anyone.
