What our customers say


Which costs are not included?

It's easy to add personal choices to any Safe Hands plan, too. A wicker coffin, for example, or floral tributes for the coffin.

We'll make sure your family knows what you've asked for, and we’ll pay that money out as an allowance towards those specific costs at the time of need.

We take CPI into consideration, but if those costs are more than the allowance, then the difference will have to be settled before the personal choices can be provided.

How will my family know about my funeral plan?

It's a good idea to talk to your family about your funeral wishes. You can leave instructions in your Will, but we’ll provide information that makes it easy to talk about your Safe Hands plan.

Can I change my mind, after I've bought a plan?

Yes. You can cancel a plan free of charge within 30 days and we’ll refund everything you've paid to date. After that time, we apply an administration charge of £249 (which we can deduct from any monies paid in to date).
