Safe Hands Funeral Planning Services At NC Funeral Directors
We work in partnership with Safe Hands Funeral Planners as one of their approved funeral directors.
You can rest assured that your money will be in Safe Hands, and that when you die, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that the major costs associated with a funeral are covered.
Why is it beneficial to have a funeral plan?
There’s no doubt that funerals cost a significant sum of money, usually ranging from £1000 to £5000+. This can place a heavy burden on family, who in their time of grief, may be faced with expensive funeral fees.
Sometimes, money can be accessed through the deceased’s bank accounts or estate, but this does take time. Having a funeral plan in place guarantees the funds will be readily available when your family needs them most.
Many people also choose to have a funeral plan as they get to decide exactly how they wish to be remembered. This again, removes some of the decision making left to the family at an already difficult time.
Are Safe Hands Funeral Plans Safe?
Funeral plans aren’t regulated by the financial standards authority, however, with Safe Hands, your money will be held in an independent trust. The staff, including the directors, at Safe Hands have no involvement in this trust. The trust is managed by UBS, a multinational investment firm voted the ‘Global Investment Bank’ at the Global Finance Investment Bank Awards in 2016.
So, unlike other funeral plan services, your money will be held independently and safely.

What is included in our Funeral Plans?
We offer very flexible funeral plans, starting at £2075.00. You are free to select the type of send off you’d prefer whether you want a cremation or burial to the kind of flowers or service (religious, spiritual or humanist) you want.
How Do I Pay For My Funeral?
The fantastic thing about our funeral plans is that we offer monthly payment schedules to suit your budget.
Our funeral plans are available to anyone over the age of eighteen with no upper age limit and no penalties for your current health or medical history.
0% interest Funeral Plans
You can pay for your funeral plan in a lump sum, or by paying in monthly instalments for either 12 months or 24 months. These options are completely interest free. So for example, if you were to take our funeral plan at £2075.00 over two years, it would cost you just £86.46 per month.
Installments for up to 10 years
You can also, if you wish, take out a payment plan over the span of up to ten years.*
