Your Funeral. Your Way. With Devall & Son.

Nobody wants their family to face money worries in the future. A Funeral Plan lets you fix the cost of the funeral director’s services covered by your plan at today’s prices. Even if prices rise in the future, once your plan is paid for you’ll have the reassurance of knowing there’ll be nothing more to pay for these services – guaranteed.

Few people like to talk about their funeral however as our plan holders, often tell us, knowing that your funeral arrangements are taken care of can be a big weight off your mind. 

A Golden Charter Funeral Plan can help make things easier for everyone – so that when the time comes, just one phone call to Devall & Son is all that’s needed to activate your plan. Everything will then be taken care of, and carried out according to your wishes, helping to relieve your family of the stress and financial worry.y they may otherwise have to face.

Choose The Perfect Plan

We have five example Funeral Plans for you to choose from, so whether you’d like a traditional cremation or burial with a service, or a no-fuss direct cremation with no service or attendees, you’ll be able to pick the plan that best suits your needs and your budget.

Other Costs To Consider- Essential 3rd Party Costs 

These are the costs of essential services: burial fees or cremation fees, plus the minister or officiant's fee and doctors' fees. These costs are outside of our control but will be paid by us, to the third parties at the time of the funeral. 

Option A includes a £664 allowance for third party costs, Option B includes a £1274 allowance and Options C, D and E include a £1464 allowance. Option A and Option B allowances are lower because the choice of date and time of the funeral is restricted, and the Crematorium offers a discounted rate for these service times. 

The value of the allowance in your plan may grow over time. There will only be more to pay at the time of the funeral if the third party costs exceed the allowance when you buy your plan, or if the costs increase by more than the growth of your plan. 

Please note: These plans don't include the purchase of a burial plot. Should you choose burial the plans include allowance towards opening of a new or existing grave. The purchase of a grave or any monumental work would need to be arranged seperately. 

What Every Plan Includes

  • Provision of professional services and making arrangements for the funeral
  • Advice on the certification and registration of the death and related documentation
  • The coffin (type is dependent on chosen plan)
  • Collection and transportation of the deceased to the FD premises within a 25 mile radius (collection time frame is dependent on the plan you choose)
  • Care of the deceased prior to the burial or cremation (excluding embalming)
  • The service at a local cemetary or crematorium
  • Funeral held on a normal weekday, during working hours
  • Allowance towards third party costs (amount dependent on the plan you choose)
  • 24 hour funeral director telephone support for the bereaved
  • Transportation via hearse to the funeral venue
  • Provison of profficient staff to attend to the coffin
