Funeral Directors

Last Updated: 15th March 2022

Funeral Directors

Funeral Directors first became active in the 18th century and became a more recognised profession in the early 20th century when funeral director trade bodies and associations were formed. There are over 5,000 funeral directors in the UK; approximately 1,200 of these are Co-operative funeral directors, approximately 800 are Dignity funeral directors and over 3,000 are independent funeral directors.

Funeral Plan Market™ provides a national funeral director service to provide funeral arrangements for those arranging a funeral for a person that has passed away. Funeral packages start form £999 and we are on average 40% cheaper than the average national price for an attended cremation.

Pre-Paid Funeral Plans

It is against the law for a funeral director to be paid for a funeral BEFORE the person has passed; to pay for a funeral in advance a pre-paid funeral plan must be purchased, and the funeral plan provider will allocate a funeral director to look after the deceased when the time comes. Depending on the funeral plan type purchased you may be able to nominate a preferred funeral director. When you purchase a pre-paid funeral plan you pay for the plan in 1 payment or monthly. The funeral plan provider will pay the allocated funeral director for all the services included in the funeral plan at the time of need.

Funeral Plan Market™ exclusively sells Plan with Grace funeral plans.
