Age UK Funeral Plans are provided by Dignity and brought to you by Age UK Enterprises Limited

Basic Plan

The Basic Funeral Plan is now just £2,895 and covers necessary elements needed for a cremation funeral and where burial is required provides a contribution towards burial costs.

The plan includes a basic coffin and includes a hearse from the Funeral Director’s straight to the crematorium or burial site.  It also offers visits to the chapel of rest for your family by appointment during business hours.

As a limited plan, there are date and time restrictions that apply for funeral services and the range of Funeral Directors available across our nationwide network is also subject to limitations   You may not make any additional contributions towards the costs of any special requests.

You can compare the Basic Funeral Plan against other Age UK Funeral Plans here.

What's not included in an Age UK Funeral Plan

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

Per month amounts are for payments over 180 months. All payments over more than 12 months include an administration charge.

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.
