Funeral Prepayment Plans from Bodmin Funeral Services
Many people wish to provide for their funeral expenses, and a prepaid funeral plan is a caring, sensible and cost-effective way to do so.
The advantage of a funeral plan over a savings account or life insurance policy is that you can pay the funeral director's fees at today's price, and beat inflation - no matter when the service might be required.
The funeral director's fees will be paid by Ecclesiastical Planning Services at the time of the funeral.
Funeral prepayment plans are provided by Ecclesiastical Planning Services in association with Bodmin Funeral Services
All funeral prepayments are held by Ecclesiastical Planning Services until required and comply with the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.
"Most of us, as we get older, expect to provide the money to meet our funeral expenses."
"We're not morbid - it's to do with independence and responsibility, leaving everything in order for our relatives and friends."
"The fact is that funerals cost money and we want to take care of the cost."

The Funeral Plan 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.
