Funeral Plans

Funeral plans allow you the opportunity to plan and pay for your own funeral in advance. Peter Jackson Funeral Services provide a range of bespoke plans tailored to your needs and budget. To discuss our funeral plans in Somerset and Dorset, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01963 362570.

Is a Pre-Paid Funeral Plan a good idea?

A pre-paid funeral plan is a good idea if you want to ensure you have control over your funeral. In addition, the fact you pay for it in advance means that you will not have the worry of becoming a financial burden when you pass away.

Taking out a plan means that you can arrange your own funeral down to the smallest detail.

How Much Does a Funeral Plan Cost?

The cost of the plan is based on your unique requirements. We understand that everyone is different, therefore, we do not operate on a ‘one price fits all’ pricing structure. The cost will be calculated when all the arrangements have been discussed and agreed in the consultation meeting.

Golden Charter Funeral Plans

All our plans are Independent Way plans provided by Golden Charter. If you purchase your plan directly through us, these plans guarantee that we will be your chosen funeral director when you pass away. Many other providers do not offer the peace of mind of choosing your own funeral director, as a result, the Independent Way plans are a popular choice because they provide that extra assurance.

Advantages of pre-paid funeral plans

There are many advantages in planning ahead with a funeral plan. They include:

 

  • Save money long term by fixing the cost to the same prices as today
  • Arrange your own funeral
  • Spread the cost over a term and monthly payment to meet your needs
