What is a funeral plan?

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.

How do funeral plans work?

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.

What happens if I die before my funeral plan is paid off?

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.

Can I transfer my funeral plan to another funeral director?

Absolutely. Just contact us to let us know which funeral director you’d like to switch to, and we’ll make the arrangements.

What happens if the funeral director goes out of business?

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.

Can I cancel my Beyond Open Funeral Plan?

You can cancel for free any time. There’s no cancellation fee, however after the first 30 days the £195 admin fee is retained.

Can I transfer the plan to someone else?

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.
