Colourful Funeral with Dignity
Your Plan, Your Way
The Dignity Prepaid Funeral Plan is ideal for making your wishes known to your family. You can personalise your plan to include a favourite hymn, piece of music or reading.

You can also pay a contribution up front for more items including extra limousines, floral tributes or a wake. This way you can protect your loved ones from having to cover the full costs when the time comes.

Any contributions you make will grow each year with the Retail Price Index (RPI). Unlike some other funeral plan providers, Dignity allows you to update your requests at any time – without incurring an administration fee.
