How to Plan a Funeral

Planning a Funeral – How to Plan a Funeral

Do you find yourself wondering How to Plan a Funeral? Planning a funeral can be hard for everyone. From organising the director to planning the travel! Organising a special funeral reception is the perfect way to commemorate the life of a loved one. While finding the venue may be relatively easy, making sure that all of the guests can get there can be a problem.

Funeral Minibus Hire is specially designed so that a big group of family and friends can travel to the funeral reception venue together, while the designated driver makes sure that the trip goes smoothly and that nobody is left behind.

Funeral directors

Choose a funeral director who’s a member of either:

These organisations have codes of practice – they must give you a price list when asked.

Some local councils run their funeral services, for example for non-religious burials. The British Humanist Association and Institute of Civil Funerals can also help with non-religious funerals.

Arranging the funeral yourself

Contact the Cemeteries and Crematorium Department of your local council to arrange a funeral yourself. This can be good for some but stressful for others no matter what arrangements you decide to go with our Minibus and coach hire services are here for your guests!

Funeral costs

These Funeral costs can include:

  • funeral director fees
  • things the funeral director pays for on your behalf (called ‘disbursements’ or ‘third-party costs’), for example, crematorium or cemetery fees, or a newspaper announcement about the death
  • local authority burial or cremation fees

Funeral directors may list all these costs in their quote. You can get quotes from several funeral directors to see what is available within your budget.

Paying for a funeral

The funeral can be paid for:

  • from a financial scheme, the person had, for example, a pre-paid funeral plan or insurance policy
  • by you, or other family members or friends
  • with money from the person’s estate (savings, for example) – getting access to this is called applying for a ‘grant of representation’ (sometimes called ‘applying for probate’)

Testimonials

We were very pleased with the service we received. Our home is not easy to find but the driver had left plenty of time to follow our instructions when he phoned for help. He was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely use and recommend this company again especially for groups of 6 and above.

My family were going out to Christmas dinner on Christmas Day. The price was fantastic to take 10 of us out including multiple pick up and drop offs. The driver Atif was extremely pleasant, prompt and accommodating. Highly recommend and will definitely use them again. Kind Regards, Stephanie International Business Manager.
