Put your trust in us

A Dignity Prepaid Funeral Plan is a promise to deliver the funeral you have chosen in the future. You’re trusting us to be there and look after your loved ones, and we at Dignity take that responsibility very seriously.

Whenever your funeral is needed and no matter how much costs have gone up, we guarantee that the funeral will take place and that there will be no more to pay for the services included in the Plan.

Dignity is a financially stable company, with a long reliable history. Last year, our funeral directors carried out more than 70,700 funerals across the UK. We’re also the largest single operator of crematoriums in the UK with 44 locations throughout Britain. It means that unlike some other providers we have the stature and capability to stand behind our guarantees even if times are difficult.

As extra security, when you take out a Prepaid Funeral Plan with Dignity, the money is paid directly into the independent National Funeral Trust, where it is securely held and managed until it’s needed. At which point it is paid to the Funeral Director. It means that your money is safe and should you wish to you can get it back, at any time, with only a small cancellation fee to pay if you change your mind after the cancellation period.

Dignity Funeral Plans is the first ever organisation in the UK to be accredited the BSI Kitemark™ for Customer Service. This demonstrates that Dignity has always strived to provide only the very best standards of customer care, treating every customer with compassion and integrity.
