Personalising Your Funeral Plan
A Prepaid Funeral Plan from Dignity lets you take care of the essential funeral arrangements in advance, so that that those left behind won’t have to make difficult decisions such as having to find a funeral director or trying to decide what arrangements you would have wanted.
Personalise as much or as little as you choose
Once you have taken care of the essential arrangements, you can also personalise your Plan if you wish. You can personalise it as much or as little as you want to, from adding special requests such as hymns and readings, to specifying a chosen route for the cortege to follow, or requesting favourite flowers, it’s up to you.
For many people, being able to add these touches can really make the occasion feel more personal. Whether that’s a piece of music that brings a smile or a hymn that’s heartfelt, personalising your funeral in this way is very straightforward.
No charges to make changes to your Plan
You can document your special wishes within your Plan for no additional cost, and if your preferences change, you can make changes as many times as you wish.
Some special requests, such as an extra limousine, flowers and catering at the wake for example, are not included in the Plan and will need to be paid for at the time of the funeral. Or if you wish to include a contribution to these costs within your Plan, you can do so with our Amber, Pearl and Diamond Plans, the contribution will also increase in line with RPI each year.
Our Limited Plan does not allow you to make any additional contributions towards the costs of any special requests.
Your loved ones also have the freedom to add any personal tributes and touches they want at the time of the funeral and the Dignity Nominated Funeral Director will be on hand to help them with this.
