Why You Should Plan Ahead

Having a pre-paid funeral plan in place can be very reassuring, both for you and your family.

With many families unsure of what their loved one wanted and feeling under pressure to get it right, it will be a comfort to you and your family if you’ve made your wishes known. Having a funeral plan in place saves your family the task of making decisions when they are grieving, and potentially leaving them with a large funeral bill to pay.

A Funeral Plan from Fosters:

  • Guarantees the cost of our funeral services, meaning your family will not be asked to pay more for these as included in your plan.

  • Provides a financial contribution towards 3rd party services and services you wish to add to your plan.

  • Should the value of the contribution be more than the cost you can put the difference towards something else.

  • Helps your family at a difficult time as you have already made your wishes known

  • Offers help, support and guidance every step of the way by our experienced funeral arrangers.

  • Brings you peace of mind, knowing every detail will be taken care of.

What is a Pre-Paid Funeral Plan?

A Pre-Paid Funeral Plan is a simple way of choosing the kind of funeral you would like and then
pre-paying for it today.

Financial Protection

Your money is protected and will be invested in a Whole of Life insurance policy with a leading UK financial services company, Scottish Friendly and is protected by the FSCS.

Help Protect Against
Rising Costs

The price of our funeral services are guaranteed as well as a financial contribution for the burial or cremation.

Peace Of Mind

The satisfaction of knowing your affairs are in order, and that you and your family will receive the best of care without the additional worry that comes from uncertainty.

Changes To Average Funeral Costs In The UK

A recent survey (SunLife (2022) Cost of Dying Report) shows that the average cost of a funeral in the UK is now £4,056 – an increase of 121% since 2004.

 If funeral costs continue to rise at the same rate we have seen over the past decade the average funeral will cost over £5,000, in five years’ time.*

*Source: Sunlife Cost of Dying Report 2022.

Once your plan is in place, we guarantee that the price for the funeral services provided by us will stay the same and, no matter how much funeral prices may rise in the years to come, your loved ones will not have to pay a penny more for Fosters services included with your plan.
