Can I choose either a cremation or burial funeral plan?

Who are the Funeral Planning Authority?

The Funeral Plan Authority (FPA) is the regulatory body for prepaid funeral plans in the UK. All funeral plan providers who are registered with the FPA must follow a strict set of Rules and a Code of practice and this helps ensure standards are met across the industry.

Dignity is proud to be a member of the FPA. You should make sure any provider you're considering purchasing a funeral plan from is a member of the FPA. 

I have life insurance, can I use this for my funeral?

Life insurance can be used to cover the cost of your funeral but this method can often be unreliable. It is important to remember that with funeral costs rising annually^, life insurance policies may struggle to cover all the costs associated with your funeral.

A funeral plan from Dignity will cover all the costs of the funeral so there will be no more to pay towards the services included in your plan. You can read more about the difference between funeral plans and life insurance in our guide here.
