Pre-Priced Package Plans
People are understandably concerned by the cost of a funeral. Shanti Funeral Services believe in being open and transparent and have listed a range of package plans with prices on our website including the cost of a direct to crematorium funeral and the cost of a simple funeral. Please find these package plans here (link to package plans). For a more personalised service, adding additional services onto set priced plans can be arranged and all fees will be discussed prior to providing the additional services. For a truly personalised service, Shanti Funeral Services also offer bespoke funerals which can be arranged by working together with one of our funeral arrangers to design a unique funeral which caters to your specific wishes and requirements. Please see here for more information for a Bespoke package (link to Bespoke Package page)
Pre-Paid Funeral Plans
More and more people are wishing to plan for a funeral well in advance of that need. Shanti Funeral Services can facilitate Pre-Paid Funeral Plans through the Golden Charter Trust funeral planning schemes. With a funeral plan, you choose the funeral you want and pay for it at today’s prices, relieving your family of any worries and uncertainty at what will inevitably be a distressing time. Our plans provide an easy way for you to organise your funeral arrangements in advance, specify your wishes and take care of the costs – at today’s prices. We offer a range of flexible payment options, so your plan could cost less than £5 a week (based on a 50 year old taking out a Base Plan, paying by Low Cost Instalments with a £0 deposit over 30 years). Please see here to find out more information about the Golder Charter Trust Pre-Paid Funeral Plans (link to future planning page).
Government Assisted Funeral Payments
The Department For Work and Pensions can offer help towards the cost of the funeral through the social fund. The Social Fund is a Government scheme to help people on a low income with emergency expenses. If you require assistance, we are happy to help you complete the necessary documents, and further questions can be answered by a Shanti Funeral Services funeral arranger either in person or over the phone.
