    Avoiding Rising Costs
    Funeral costs in the UK are rising every year. While the average cost of a funeral in 2004 was £1,920, today it’s £4,271, an increase of 122%3. According to the 2018 SunLife Cost of Dying Report, Golden Charter project costs could be more than £7,500 in 10 years’ time. A Devall & Son funeral plan offers an easy way to pay for your funeral director's service at a cost that's fixed at current prices. 

    What’s more, Devall & Son funeral plans start from under only 31p per day* and you will receive a £75 M&S Gift Card when you purchase a plan.
    Choose the perfect plan
    We have devised 5 plans from a non-service cremation, through to a complete funeral covering every essential
    aspect. All our plans can be modified and created as bespoke as you need, please speak to one of Funeral
    Directors if any additional requirements are needed and we can arrange a bespoke cost for your funeral plan.
    Essential third party costs
    These are the costs or essential services: burial fees or cremation fees, plus the minister or officiant’s fee and doctors’ fees. They are outside the control of the funeral director but will be paid by them, to the third parties at the time of the funeral.

    The Direct Cremation Plan includes an £664 allowance for third party costs, The Simplicity Plan includes £1274 and The Necessity, Comprehensive and Complete Peace of Mind Plans include a £1464 allowance. The Direct and Simplicity Plan allowance is lower because the choice of date and time of the funeral is restricted, and the Crematorium offer a discounted rate for these service times.

    The value of the third-party cost allowance included in your plan will grow over time. Only if third party costs were to increase by more than the growth of your plan might there be more to pay at the time of the funeral.

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