What is a Funeral Plan?
Bringing everyone peace of mind
A Funeral Plan allows you to protect your friends and family from the emotional and financial burden of arranging a funeral at an already difficult time.
With a Plan, you make all your own decisions about the day, and pay for the funeral based on today’s prices. You can relax in the knowledge that everything’s been covered, and you and those you love will be protected from rising costs.

Guaranteed at today’s prices
On average, funeral costs have doubled over the last decade. Rising well above the level of inflation, it’s a trend that looks set to continue due to factors including a lack of reasonably priced land for cemeteries, and need for crematoria to invest in their facilities. The chart below details just how costs have risen – and how they look set to rise in the future.
With a Co-operative Funeralcare Funeral Plan, we guarantee that there will be no more to pay for the services you have included when the time comes, regardless of how much funeral costs increase in the future.
Taking out a Plan on behalf of a loved one
None of us like to think about the funeral of someone close to us. But a Funeral Plan could help you create a truly fitting send-off for them, while also relieving you of difficult decisions and the financial burden when the time eventually comes. You can arrange a Funeral Plan for a partner, spouse, close relative or dependant.
Our unique online service
The Co-operative Funeralcare is totally unique in offering an online service which allows you to view and manage your Pre-paid Funeral Plan. Putting you in control, you can login and view your Plan at any time, as well as choosing to let loved ones know you have arranged a Plan. You can also use it to nominate a preferred funeral home, and to register or update your Funeral Requests. And you can choose to have your Plan emailed or posted to you - or even both, if you prefer.
