More and more people want to ease the future burden on their family or friends by arranging and paying for their own funeral in advance. This is a simple process with our independent prepaid plans. We can help you to plan the funeral of your choice and freeze the cost of our services at present day prices.
Our prepaid plans are provided by Open Funeral Plans, an independent and transparent provider. Open are committed to the provision of your funeral through, wherever possible, an independent funeral director like us. The Open Prepaid Funerals Trust deed has been created in such a way that it protects both you the plan holder and us at Levertons who have responsibility for the provision of your Open Prepaid Funeral.
It is our experience that no two funerals are the same, so Levertons’ prepaid plans enable us to create a funeral to reflect your individual wishes. For this reason we only provide bespoke funeral plans as they offer the most flexibility for you. We therefore don't offer fixed price packages.
The cost depends entirely on your personal preferences and the level of service you require, so, it’s important that we create the plan together so that we can explain all of the options open to you.
Once you have paid for your plan, Levertons guarantee there will be no more to pay for our fees and services as detailed in your plan. However, the third party costs, known as disbursements, which we pay on your behalf, are beyond our control and therefore we can’t guarantee to cover them entirely.
These include cemetery and crematoria fees, doctors’ fees for cremation certificates, paying the celebrant, newspaper notices, etc. If these costs have increased dramatically during the life of the plan, a contribution from your family may be required to meet any shortfall.
To pay for your prepaid plan you can pay by making a single payment in full by BACs, cheque, credit or debit card. You can also choose monthly instalments tailored to suit your circumstances.
