Compare Local Funeral Plans
We set aside more for third party costs. To date, our plan has gained 3.7% interest compared to the 2.8% or even 0.5% offered by other funeral cover plans.
Our plan has the lowest administration fee available (£195). Many pre-paid funeral plan providers will charge you over £1,000.
We'll help you choose your own funeral director and funeral options – other plans lump you in a 1-size-fits-all national package that ignores local prices.
If you change your mind, it's free to cancel. Other funeral plan providers will charge you up to £700!
We won't spend any of your money on sales commissions. Other pre-paid funeral plans pay up to £800 to third parties.
How much is a funeral plan with Beyond? Here's how we measure up against other national funeral plan providers:
This graph shows Avalon, Pride Planning, Golden Leaves, Safe Hands, Golden Charter, Age UK, Dignity and Co-op funeral plan costs compared to the Beyond Open plan.
The quotes here include funeral director fees, cremation, wood effect coffin, one hearse and one limousine. Beyond’s least expensive pre-paid funeral plan is with Fosters Funeral Directors with a cremation at the Linn Crematorium.
A pre-paid funeral plan is a simple way to organise and pay for a funeral in advance. By covering the cost of the funeral now, you can protect your family from paying higher fees later on - and make sure your wishes are faithfully carried out.
With the Beyond Open Funeral Plan, you can choose to pay for your own funeral all at once, or in monthly instalments. We will then safeguard your money until you need it by investing it in a trust fund on your behalf. This is managed by an independent board of trustees.
When the time comes, your family can put the plan into effect by contacting your chosen funeral director.
If you die before making your last payment, your family will receive the amount that you’ve paid in so far towards the funeral.
This means they may have to make up some of the difference, but they’ll still benefit from the amount you’ve saved.
Absolutely. Just contact us to let us know which funeral director you’d like to switch to, and we’ll make the arrangements.
If the funeral director turns out to have gone out of business by the time of your death, we’ll choose another funeral director to take care of the plan. We’ll let your family know when the time comes so that they can switch if they’d like to.
You can cancel for free any time. There’s no time limit and no cancellation fee.
Not only can you take out a funeral plan to cover someone else’s service (a parent or partner, say) you can also change the name on the funeral plan any time.
We’re also happy to set up mirror funeral plans for two people, where the plan will pay for whoever’s funeral comes first. Just contact us.
