Funeral plans

The fact that you will need a funeral is one of life’s inevitabilities, however the cost of even the most basic funeral can be more than you expect.

At Birkett Long IFA, we will help you plan and prepare in advance, meaning your loved ones will have less to deal with during such a difficult and emotional time.

Funeral planning provision has become important to many people in protecting against the rising costs of a funeral. 

A funeral plan can be purchased to:

  • fix the cost of a cremation / funeral at today’s prices. The costs covered usually include the provision of a coffin, hearse and limousine and also the Minister and officiant’s fees.
  • protect the family from the burden of meeting funeral expenses.
  • sit outside of the estate for inheritance tax purposes and is guaranteed to pay out even if the plan holder’s assets are frozen at death.
