Helping you plan for the future...
We'd all like it if prices never went up and we could pay the same for something in the future as we do today. A funeral bond from Midlands Co-operative Funeral Services allows you to do just that.
An independent survey has found that the average cost of a funeral in the UK has risen 60 per cent since the year 2000. Due in large to rising cemetery and cremation costs, this trend is set to continue in to the future.
With a Midlands Co-operative Funeral Bond you can pay for your funeral arrangements and disbursements (fees paid by us on your behalf such as crematorium fees) at today's prices. Once your funeral has been arranged and paid for, there will be no further costs, no matter how many years away the service takes place. You can even spread the payments over 12 months.
The benefits are clear...
Your funeral, the way you want it
A Midlands Co-operative Funeral Bond enables you to tailor-make the service, so your funeral can be as individual as you are.
Peace of mind for you and your family
In addition to relieving any financial strains on your family members, you can rest assured that when the time comes your wishes will be carried out in full, leaving no difficult decisions to be made.
Not all funeral bonds are the same
There are minimal restrictions on the details of the services you want, no hidden costs and no health or age restrictions. All monies paid to Midlands Co-operative Funeral Services are individually invested with Co-operative Insurance Services. Your money is held in a separate trust, and can only be accessed and used to pay for your funeral.
Easy payment option
Spread the cost of a funeral bond over 12 months - this attracts a financial charge. And a one off administration charge is added to all new bond arrangements.
Quality arrangements, simply made...
You might have considered a funeral bond in the past but like many people found the idea unnerving or depressing. However, our friendly advisors are trained to put you at ease and you guide you step by step through the process. It is often said that arrangements feel like an informal chat.
A funeral bond can be organised in one visit, which can be in your own home if you prefer, and once complete it can be put out of mind allowing you to get on with the important things in life
