A pre-paid funeral plan is arranged before someone dies. You will contact a funeral director to help you with funeral contracts in advance and pre-arrange your entire funeral service. Your funeral director will then present you with the funeral costs and the options to pay in full or according to a payment plan. A pre-paid funeral plan saves your family a lot of stress and financial strain when you pass on from this life. It keeps financial and other stresses at bay as you have already paid the funeral home, cremation fees and third party costs. It also ensures that your send-off is exactly as you planned.
Yes, it does. Direct cremation is a simple funeral option. It is no less respectful to your loved one's final journey. Some families prefer to skip mortuary visitations and the third party costs linked to a cremation service. To these families, the way they say goodbye is personal. Our Fenix Funeral Directors will arrange for the deceased to go to the crematorium and return in a temporary urn when choosing direct cremation. The family will then host a wake, memorial, or celebration to scatter the ashes at a memorable location.
All funeral celebrants are there to support you and to honour your beloved. Depending on if you use a religious venue or not, this is up to you. Usually, families prefer the local priest or celebrant who they have known for years from the Sunday service.
Funerals can be quite costly, and it is vital to understand what you can spend. It is always better to have a set amount in your head or a funeral plan. Fenix Funeral Directors offer pre-determined funeral plans at set prices starting at £995. Contact our funeral directors to discuss funeral costs, our funeral services and our pre-payment plans, nothing is too much trouble.
