About Us

Advanced Funeral Plans are a specialist prepaid funeral plan provider, working together with Safe Hands Funeral Plans to deliver the highest quality of service, whilst still providing the most competitively priced prepaid funeral plans available in the UK. Furthermore, we are fully endorsed and supported by The National Federation of Funeral Directors and The Fair Price Charter.

The National Federation of Funeral Directors (NFFD) are the UK’s only funeral trade body dedicated to increasing consumer choice, transparency, and pricing fairness within the industry. Their Ambassador TV’s Dr Hilary Jones aims to increase public awareness to their mission, which will in-turn help us to ensure that the consumer receives the best possible deal every time.

What is a Prepaid Funeral Plan?

With funeral costs rising far in excess of the annual rate of inflation, it is suggested that in just 8 years time, the estimated cost of a basic funeral will be in excess of £7,000. Taking out a pre-paid funeral plan is the most affordable, secure, and practical means by which to protect your loved ones against these rising costs, by simply securing it at todays price.

It also allows you to prepare in advance of life's final event, by organising the occasion to your precise wishes, so that when the time comes, not only will your family be relieved of a considerable financial burden, but they'll also be spared the distress of having to make many difficult and uncomfortable decisions.

More and more people now understand that in addition to maximising the financial benefit to their families, taking out their plan long in advance of their retirement, reduces the emotional strain that can result from leaving it until later on in life. The average age when taking out a funeral plan with us is between 45-70 years.

Rising Funeral Costs

According to the Sun Life Cost of Dying Report 2013, the cost of a basic funeral has risen from £1,230 in 1997 to £4,000 today - an increase of over 225%. Conservative estimates suggest that by 2024 a funeral will cost, on average, between £7,000 and £8,000.

With funeral costs rising far in excess of the annual rate of inflation, it is an unfortunate fact that for many families, budgeting for a funeral by traditional means, may no longer be sufficient to cover the cost. Planning and paying for your funeral plan in advance allows you to fix the cost of all the funeral director's fees and services at today's prices and protects your family against rising inflation and rising funeral expenses.

Prepare today for a peaceful tomorrow

By taking out your plan with Advanced Funeral Plans, you have the choice of paying for your plan in full or at a fixed monthly price for anything up to 10 years (with 2 years interest free). We offer a comprehensive range of plans covering both cremation and burial, and all can be tailored to suit every conceivable taste, preference and budget. However long you live, and however expensive a funeral is when you pass, there will always be sufficient funds to cover all the funeral directors fees and funeral services.
