The Age UK Funeral Plan
The Age UK Funeral Plan was introduced in response to feedback from Age UK supporters and the people they help. They highlighted that funeral costs are a significant concern among older people. As a result Age UK Enterprises Limited teamed up with Dignity, a funeral service provider with a long and proud history of serving local communities, across the generations.
Age UK Enterprises Limited have now worked with Dignity for more than 25 years and have great trust in their network of over 1,300 funeral directors and their caring and professional staff.
Dignity is a major provider of funeral related services in the UK, owning crematoria as well as funeral directors across the country. This means that an Age UK Funeral Plan has the stature and capability to stand behind our guarantees, unlike some of our competitors.
Dignity have supported families of the nation’s communities, politicians and even the Royal family in funeral services. Their oldest funeral director, George S Munn & Co., was founded on the south side of Glasgow in 1812.
Today, Dignity maintains this rich heritage and their community-driven values, employing local people who understand the environments and people they work with. Dignity also strives to set the highest possible standards in client service and care.
Every appointed funeral director works to a code of practice with most adhering to standards laid down by the National association of Funeral Directors or Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors.
Dignity and the Age UK Funeral Plan are regulated by the Funeral Planning Authority, the professional body that oversees the operation of registered funeral plan companies. This means that you can rest assured of a professional and transparent service from an Age UK Funeral Plan.
