Your Funeral Plan Guarantee

“Everything is designed to make things as easy as possible for your family and friends”

Within 28 days Ecclesiastical Planning Services will send you a Funeral Plan Guarantee Certificate, confirming your plan details and the fact that there will be nothing more to pay for the services itemised (but please see the note on disbursements page 5). For instalment plan customers, your payment plan will be confirmed and the guarantee certificate will be issued when it is completed.

The Guarantee Certificate comes complete with practical information for your relatives or executor on what they should do at the time of the funeral, your personal wishes for the funeral and where your important documents are kept. Everything is designed to make things as easy as possible for your family and friends.

A Code of Practice

Funeral pre–payment plans are provided by Ecclesiastical Planning Services which is part of the Ecclesiastical Group. Ecclesiastical has been protecting people, property and funds since 1887 and Ecclesiastical Planning Services is a registered provider of the Funeral Planning Authority and adheres to its Code of Practice and high professional standards.

All payments are made directly into Ecclesiastical Planning Services and are held in guaranteed whole of life assurance polices.  The plans we offer give you exceptional financial security for your money.

The funeral plan funds are held in guaranteed whole of life assurance policies with a life assurance company who is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Funeral plans themselves are not regulated by the PRA or FCA but are regulated by the Funeral Planning Authority.
