Everything taken care of with just one call - well worth doing. My father had a good send-off and all his wishes were taken care of...

I can’t thank everyone at Safe Hands enough for the service and support they’ve given me, arranging my Dad's funeral plan. Everyone I spoke to was caring, compassionate and considerate.

I've got no hesitation in recommending Safe Hands, and the funeral directors chosen to help us. They were all open, honest, and respecteful at what was an incredibly difficult time – our family was so grateful.

How can we help you?

Which costs are not included?

It’s easy to add personal choices to any Safe Hands plan. 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 £295 (which we can deduct from any monies paid in to date).
