We use the Perfect Choice Funeral Plan. Perfect Choice Funeral Plans are brought to you by Ecclesiastical Planning Services Ltd, which is part of the Ecclesiastical Group. Ecclesiastical has been protecting people, property and funds since it was founded in 1887.
The reasons we use this scheme are very simple.
The funeral costs are exactly the same as our normal prices with the addition of an administration charge and the administration charge for this scheme is the lowest we have come across.
In addition it is a popular plan with many independent funeral directors using it. Perfect Choice works only with members of the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD). Therefore if you were to move out of the area, another funeral director who is also a member of the NAFD would be found to take over your plan, although there may be more to pay if local prices differ.
Your money is totally safe and NOT held by us. Perfect Choice Funeral Plan funds are held in guaranteed whole of life assurance policies with a life assurance company that is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and regulated by the PRA and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Funeral plans themselves are not regulated by the PRA or FCA but are regulated by the Funeral Planning Authority.
