A thoughtful decision

Consideration for others is the most common reason for taking out an Funeral Plan and peace of mind is the most common benefit.

With a funeral plan from S. Stibbards & Sons, you choose the funeral you want and pay for the services included within the plan at today’s prices, relieving your family of worries and uncertainty at what will inevitably be a distressing time. You will have made the arrangements in advance, selected the funeral director and taken care of the costs.

There are many ways that you can buy a funeral plan and recent years have seen a explosion of companies offering funeral plans on-line.  We believe that taking out a plan is not only a decision for today but also for the future and the on-going care of your family is paramount to us.  By taking a plan out with us, you ensure that when your family need your plan, that deal with a local company with a reputation to uphold and a heritage of caring for their local community.

We rarely accept plans from other plan providers, as we believe that they offer poor value to you and often have high commission fees paid to third party agents, which ultimately effects the value of your plan and therefore your future funeral arrangements.  If you decide that you would like to take out a plan with a third party agent but would like us to ultimately look after your funeral arrangements, please check with us first to ensure we will accept your plan at time of need.

More than a million people in the UK have taken out a funeral plan, over 500,000 of them with our chosen partner, Golden Charter, one of the UK’s largest independent funeral plan providers.

Our funeral plans put your mind at ease with a unique combination of benefits:

  • Guaranteed nothing more to pay for the funeral director’s services included in your plan
  • Personalise the arrangements to reflect your wishes
  • The plan can be transferred to anyone in your family*

Our Plans

The S. Stibbards & Sons Funeral Plan guarantee

The price of funerals, like everything, keeps going up. However, with our Funeral Plan’s, in association with Golden Charter, you can protect yourself against these rising costs.

No matter how much the cost of the funeral director’s services included in your plan may have increased by the time they are required, they will be covered. You can be sure that once you’ve paid for your plan, there will be nothing more to pay for these services.

Each plan also includes an allowance to cover the third party costs that are not within the funeral director’s control. These include the fees for the burial or cremation and officiant (where applicable). Only if these costs were to increase more than the growth of the plan might there be a balance to pay at the time of the funeral.
