Funeral Plan Frequently Asked Questions

Is my money safe with Open Prepaid Funeral Plans?

With an Open Funeral Plan, your payments are safe and secure in the Open Trust Fund, which is run by an independent Board of Trustees, completely separate from Open Plan.

The Trustees are appointed to safeguard all payments, ensuring all future funerals can be paid for and guaranteeing the application of our quality funeral services when they’re needed.

Do I need to know what I want for my funeral before signing up?

There’s no need to decide on the specifics when you sign up to the plan if you’d prefer not to, but if are comfortable doing so, you can include any preferences or details you’d like us to adhere to when it comes to your funeral service.

When the person who has taken out the funeral plan dies, all it takes is one phone call to us and we’ll take care of absolutely everything.

What are the costs of the funeral plan?

We offer a fully guaranteed plan for £3,100.00, which includes a full cremation service, the use of a hearse, one accompanying limousine for close family/friends, and all crematorium and minister fees.

However, you can choose from several options to match your budget and preference, specifying any requirements within those options.
