PrePaid Funeral Plans in Sutton Coldfield and Erdington

Why not save your loved ones the financial and emotional stress of arranging your funeral and enquire about prepaid funeral plans today.

What are Prepaid Funeral Plans?

Basically, pre-paid Funeral Plans are bonds which can be paid either in full on the date of creation, or over easy monthly periods. The money is placed into a trust fund and invested from the time you create it, to the date of your death. Upon your death, the bond is paid to the funeral director, to cover your funeral costs.

Who can arrange Prepaid Funeral Plans?

There are no restrictions on medical grounds or age. As long as you are over the age of 18, you are able to organise your own prepaid Funeral Plan.

How do I purchase a prepaid Funeral Plan?

Contact us, Daniel Ross Funerals of Walmley, on our 24 hour telephone and helpline 0121 313 0054 and we can arrange a meeting at your convenience, to discuss your requirements further.

Do I get to decide what my prepaid funeral plan includes?

When arranging your Funeral Plan, you will be asked the questions you would normally be asked when arranging a funeral. All of your personal choices will be noted down, and the Funeral Plan structured to your requirements.

Are Funeral Plans expensive?

They can be, but for a limited time, Daniel Ross Funerals are offering “A Simple with Complete Care” Funeral Plan which is most competitively priced.

How do I pay for my Plan?

You can either pay for your plan in one lump sum, or in easy monthly payments. We can discuss this in more detail via telephone, 0121 313 0054

Who holds the funds?

Perfect Choice Funeral Plans within The National Association of Funeral Directors.

Will my Funeral Plan cover 100% of the Funeral Cost at the time of my death?

Very often yes it would, but we cannot control third party costs such as the Crematorium or doctors fees. Although these costs have historically risen by inflation which would then be covered by the growth of the prepaid funeral plan, there may come a time when this isn’t the case. If at the time of need, the third party costs are higher than the value of the contribution, there will then be a shortfall in the Plan. The funeral directors fees which include items such as our services, vehicles and coffin/casket are 100% guaranteed.

Caring for your loved at a funeral directors in Sutton Coldfield

Here, at Daniel Ross Funerals in Sutton Coldfield we are immensely proud of our facilities and Preparation suite.

We consider the care to your loved one to be the most important thing we can do, for this reason, we welcome families that may choose to be involved in the washing and dressing of their loved one.

Our preparation suite has the very latest equipment and aids to ensure that your loved one is not only cared for with dignity and respect, but their safety is vital too.

Our preparation suite is within our funeral home, Grace Mary House, for your added peace of mind and reassurance. Unfortunately, not all funeral homes are the same and it is always worth checking with the funeral director of your choice, especially if they are caring for many families and only have one Chapel of Rest:

  1. Where will my loved one be resting?
  2. Will they always remain within the Chapel of Rest even when I am not visiting?
  3. Can I help to wash my loved one, should I wish?
  4. Can I see your preparation area or mortuary, should I choose to?
  5. You have a preparation area or mortuary within your funeral home, do you not?  – it’s not in a separate building is it?

Unfortunately, many funeral directors are not able to answer these questions and sadly do not have these facilities on site which means your loved one is not actually in the place where you think they are.

We believe our openness and honesty really do give your peace of mind. That’s our personal guarantee to you.
