The National Association for Pre-paid Funeral Plans (NAPFP) was established in 1993 by funeral plan companies related to the National Association of Funeral Directors.
The Association represents the majority of funeral plan companies in the UK, comprising the majority of all plan holders.
The National Association for Pre-paid Funeral Plans was instrumental in establishing the Funeral Planning Authority and since January 2002 all members of the Association are required to register with the Funeral Planning Authority.
The NAPFP Code of Practice for Pre-paid Funeral Plans was the original code to protect consumers who pay for their funerals in advance, drawn up in consultation with the Office of Fair Trading. The NAPFP code applied to plans purchased between 1993 and 2001. During this time the NAPFP successfully campaigned for legislation for the benefit of clients and from 1st January 2002 the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 came into force. The act covers a range of financial services, including funeral pre-payment plans.
From 1st January 2002 the NAPFP Code was superseded by the Code of Practice of The Funeral Planning Authority. The NAPFP requires its members to abide by The Funeral Planning Authority Code of Practice. Any member who infringes any of the code’s provisions may be subject to disciplinary action.
Funeral Plan Market is not a member of the NAPFP which is a trade body for funeral plan providers. A number of the funeral plan providers featured on this site are NAPFP members. To find out more about funeral plan providers please Click Here.
“I have spent some considerable time going through the literature from Funeral Plan and found it to be very thorough in all aspects of what is a somewhat depressing subject (well, it would be its my funeral!) I know the funeral director and have the utmost faith in his ability to conduct the funeral in the best traditions of this sad time.”
“From the first phone call we were dealt with compassion and care. I cannot recommend them enough, the staff were so lovely and you get a designated contact who looks after you and is your point of contact. We used them for my mum , the crematorium was in beautiful grounds and the staff there were very good too”
“I was a little worried because I had never heard of them before but it was a caring and easy always there for me when I wanted them can very highly recommend thank you”
