The UK’s only fully guaranteed Funeral Plans
Unlike some Funeral Plan providers, we promise to cover all the costs of the services included in your chosen burial or cremation plan. Some providers only provide a contribution towards third party costs. We don’t think this is fair, which is why our Funeral Plans are fully guaranteed**.
See why we believe our Funeral Plans are the best available...
- With our £125 saving until 22nd December 2017, our Simple Funeral Plan is just £2,870

- A range of payment options, so you can spread the cost up to 25 years (based on your age). Use our repayment calculator to find out more.
- If you decide to pay by instalments over 2-25 years, our funeral plans come with the Co-op Commitment±
- You can pay from as little as £16.10 a month, that’s just 53p a day.*
