One of the things you might be worried about is how your loved ones are going to pay for your funeral when the time comes, particularly as funeral costs are rising year on year. 

Fortunately, this isn’t something you have to worry about, not with our pre-paid funeral plans.

Pre-Paid Funeral Plans in Birmingham, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield, Telford and Tamworth


Our pre-paid funeral plans allow you to pay for your entire funeral in advance, so the loved ones you leave behind don’t have to worry about the financial burden of giving you a good send off. We understand that it’s not the easiest subject to talk through or deal with, but members of our team have years of experience in helping people choose the right pre-paid funeral plan for them.

Safe Hands Pre-Paid Funeral Plans


We are a representative for Safe Hands, one of the UK’s most recognised and affordable pre-paid funeral plan providers, an organisation which is committed to ensuring that our customers receive the very best advice in pre-paid funeral planning. Buying a Safe Hands funeral plan not only enables you to fix the costs of funeral director’s fees and services, but also allows you to set out what you would like your funeral arrangements to be, something which may really help those you leave behind who could worry (or disagree) about what they should be doing for you.

There are no restrictions on current health, age, or medical history and you will receive the highest standard of care regardless of which funeral plan you select. Safe Hands offer flexible payment options, so you can choose whichever pre-payment funeral plan that suits your circumstances, whether that is a single lump sum payment or you would like to spread the cost for up to 10 years.

The benefits of a pre-paid funeral


There are probably more benefits to purchasing a pre-paid funeral than you realise.These benefits include:

  • The loved ones you leave behind do not need to worry about financing your funeral, because you have done this for the, relieving them of that financial burden.
  • You can choose what you would like your funeral to be like and plan every detail yourself. This not only helps you to make sure your funeral is the way you would like it to be, but it also helps the family to make these tough decisions as a time when they might not be thinking clearly. Planning the funeral yourself also prevents potential fallings-out with your loved ones who might not agree on the funeral plans.
  • A pre-paid funeral plan protects you (and your family) from the rising funeral costs. According to SunLife, the average funeral costs have risen by 122.5% since 2004 and they estimate the average cost of a funeral in 2023 to be £5120. If you purchase your funeral now, you pay today’s charges, not the inflated price.
  • By planning your own funeral you can really personalise it to you. You can select your own colour scheme (if you want to move away from black), your own flowers, you can ask for your favourite music to be played, you can even arrange the transportation in advance. So that when you do pass away, your loved ones don’t have the stress of making these decisions, and they have peace of mind in knowing you had the send-off YOU wanted.
