Funeral Plans

Planning and paying for your funeral in advance; let My Family Legacy take the emotional stress away…

A funeral plan can help to provide peace of mind for you and your family and could save you money. You choose the funeral you want and pay for your funeral directors services, included in the plan at today's prices, which can help relieve your family of worries and uncertainty at what is likely to be a distressing time.

The price of funerals, like everything else, has been rising year on year*. That’s why it is more important than ever to be planning ahead and preparing for our future. Taking out a funeral plan is a sensible and thoughtful way to help protect you against these increases. Additionally, more than a million people in the UK have taken out a funeral plan**.
