Compare Funeral Plans

The Simple Way

We research all of the funeral providers registered with the Funeral Planning Authority and present you with the best plans from the biggest, most trustworthy brands like Avalon, Co-op, Dignity, Golden Charter Golden Leaves and Perfect Choice. We make it simple to compare plans and prices to make sure you get the funeral plan that meets your needs at a price that you can afford. Below is the comparison of all of these funeral providers mid range or silver level plans. If you want to see their other plans or our comparison of the other service levels then just follow the links below.

Mid Range or Standard Funeral Plans

These are the standard range of funeral plans.  We recommend the Co-operative Funeral Care Funeral Plan and the Dignity Funeral Plan.  As you can see from the comparison these are the only companies that guarantee that they will cover third party costs like the cost of the cremation.  Given that funeral price inflation over the last few years has been largely driven by rises in these costs we don’t feel that we could recommend a plan that didn’t guarantee to cover these costs.  The rest of the funeral features are much the same.  Take a look and make your choice.

Top of the Range or Premier Funeral Plans

These are the top of the range or premier funeral plans.  We recommend the Dignity Funeral Plan for this range of funeral plans.  As you can see from the comparison these are the only companies that guarantee that they will cover third party costs like the cost of the cremation.  Not only does this plan guarantee that it will cover those rapidly rising third party costs like the crematorium fees it also includes a second limousine for your family and so feels like better value to us than the comparable co-operative funeral care plan.  The rest of the funeral features are much the same.  Take a look and make your choice.

Starter or Basic Funeral Plans

These are the starter or basic range of funeral plans.  We recommend the Co-operative Funeral Care and Dignity for this range of funeral plans.  As you can see from the comparison these are the only companies that guarantee that they will cover third party costs like the cost of the cremation.  These plans guarantee t0 cover those rapidly rising third party costs like the crematorium fees.  Choosing between Co-op and Dignity in this range will probably boil down to whether you want to use an independent funeral director or are happy to use the co-operative offices.  The rest of the funeral features are much the same.  Take a look and make your choice.
