The price of your funeral plan will include an admin fee of £250 which is retained by us to set up your plan. The remaining balance, which is made up of the products and services chosen, is transferred into a whole life insurance policy administered by Royal London. This ensures the funds are secure and ready to provide your funeral when needed. As an example, the price of a Bluebell set plan is £4,125. This is made up of the current wholesale price of the funeral (at today's prices) which is £3,875 and the administration fee of £250. The full value of £3,875 is paid into a whole of life insurance policy, and £250 fee is retained by us to cover the costs of setting up the plan.

Be aware. If you’re paying by Direct Debit and the covered individual dies before it’s fully paid, except in cases of accidental death, we’ll ask for the outstanding balance before we can redeem the plan. Alternatively, we’ll cancel the plan and refund the amount paid. This means you might not end up with the funeral plan arrangements you wanted.

If you’re paying by Direct Debit and miss two or more consecutive payments, this may lead to the cancellation of your plan and a refund of the amount paid. In the event of missed payments, we’ll let you know the outstanding balance and ask for payment within 10 business days of informing you. Please see our Terms & Conditions for more details.


Plans bought on our website are required to be paid in full to complete the purchase. If you'd like to pay in instalments, please speak to one of our Funeral Plan Arrangers who can help.

Our plans aren’t set in stone


If you change your mind on which plan is right for you, we can update it without a fee. You’ll just need to pay the difference in the plan prices that apply on the date you upgrade. If you move to a plan that is cheaper, we’ll refund the difference.


If you decide the plan no longer meets your needs, you have a 45-day cancellation period or you can cancel at any point during the length of your direct debit term. You can cancel your plan in writing, by email over the phone or in person by booking an appointment with a certified Funeral Plan Arranger.


If you choose to cancel within your cancellation period, we’ll refund all the money you have paid. If you choose to cancel your plan after this time, we’ll refund all payments made, less an admin fee of £250.

Once we’ve been told the covered individual has died, we won’t be able to cancel the plan. For full details of our cancellation policy please read the Terms and Conditions.
