Cremation Third Party Costs

  • Doctors' medical cremation certificates
  • Minister's and Officiant's fees
  • Cremation fee

Burial Costs

The plan does not guarantee to cover the costs of a burial funeral. It's designed to cover the costs of a traditional cremation funeral. However, we understand that everyone is different and if you prefer to have a burial then the plan will provide a contribution of £1,150 towards the burial costs.

If a burial is your preferred option, the Doctor's Medical Cremation Certificates, Minister's and Officiant’s fees and the Cremation Fee, referred to as ‘Cremation third party costs’ in the Policy Summary PDF, would not be covered by the plan.

Instead the contribution of £1,150, which will rise in line with inflation, is put towards these costs and other third party costs associated with burial, such as plot fee etc. If the burial third party costs are more than this contribution amount, the difference would need to be paid by your personal representatives at the time.
