Choose the right plan

All four plans guarantee to cover the cost of the funeral services included in your plan, no matter how far in the future it may be needed and how much funeral costs may rise over time. Take a look at all four plans below and see which one is right for you.

What is not included in your plan:

  • Medical certification fees. For deaths where a coroner investigation is required, there are no medical certification fees. Also, changes to legislation in May 2015 mean there will no longer be a charge for a medical certification for any deaths registered in Scotland. Similar legal changes are being considered for the rest of the UK, so we do not include provision for these fees in our Plans. If the funeral takes place outside of Scotland, and a coroner is not involved, then if applicable, the medical certification fees must be paid by the next of kin or personal representative, when arranging the funeral.

  • Embalming, burial plot, memorial or headstone, flowers, catering/wake.

  • Costs for removing artificial limbs and mechanisms such as pacemakers.


This list is not exhaustive, so please refer to the Terms & Conditions for further information.

*Basic Plan - additional restrictions to above: There is a restricted choice from approx 800 Funeral Directors. A restricted choice of date and time for the funeral will be available. Typically this means that with the Basic Funeral Plan the service will take place before 10.30am or after 3.30pm Tuesday-Thursday. You may not make any additional contributions towards the costs of any special requests. Not available on the Isle of Man.
