Funeral Pre-Payment Plans

funeralcare-prepay.jpg (3927 bytes)In addition to providing funerals at the time of need, Co-operative Funeralcare has also recognised the importance of providing the Funeral Pre-Payment Plan, which allows funeral arrangements to be made and paid for in advance of death. When we look to the future, we realise the importance of preparing for the time when we are no longer here. Most of us want the reassurance that everything will be taken care of when the time comes, and we want to do everything we can to reduce the burden of our loved ones. The Funeral Pre-Payment Plan has been designed with this in mind.

New research carried out by Co-operative Funeralcare business has highlighted people’s increasing interest in planning their own funeral, to take the burden off their family and friends.

The research has revealed that people recognise our ‘co-operative’ name and trust us when it comes to buying a funeral plan. Our open and honest reputation, our position as the UK’s leading funeral director and the security which comes from over 100 years’ trading experience, are leading more people to buy Co-operative Funeralcare’s Pre-Payment Plan than ever before.

The main reason people look to take out a plan is to relieve the emotional and financial burden on their relatives. But the research has also told us that people are attracted because our plans can be tailor-made to suit a client’s requirements and, in the case of cremation plans, carry a guarantee of no further payments, whatever the level of price inflation.

The Funeralcare Forum

The Co-operative Group is one of eleven national organisations calling for a major shake-up in the UK's funeral provision. As part of that initiative, we established the Funeralcare Forum a public panel chaired by Claire Rayner OBE, which has examined ways in which the funeral experience can be improved. The forum has provided some valuable insights, not least of which is the need for more information to help people make every funeral special. These findings were published in the Co-operative Group Funeral Rights Report. For more information click here
