What is the cheapest funeral plan?
The cheapest funeral plans include a simple coffin, a hearse but no limousines, a service at the crematorium and the cremation fees. To reduce costs further, the time of the service may be restricted to early or late in the day. Alternatively, an even cheaper option is an unattended cremation.
When comparing plans make sure you check which services are guaranteed and that the company is a member of the FPA, otherwise you may easily end up with a cheap deal, but it could be a bad one. If this is still stretching the budget, then the cheapest funeral you can have is direct cremation, a simple cremation without a funeral service costing between £1,300 to £1,800.

What is a funeral plan and how do they work?
A funeral plan is a way you can pre-pay and pre-plan your funeral. Pre-paying your funeral costs with a funeral plan makes life easier for family and saves money by avoiding inflation. Pre-planning your funeral with a funeral plan means you choose the funeral service you want at today’s prices.
Funeral plans work by letting you make your own funeral arrangements, rather than leaving family to arrange everything. With either a single payment or monthly instalments, your funeral plan secures the services of a local funeral director, who when ready will take care of everything as detailed in your plan.
