National Federation of Funeral Directors

Fair Price Charter

In Britain there is a long-held tradition for using the same firm of funeral directors whenever someone in the family passes away. In an ideal world the cost of arranging a funeral will be a secondary consideration. However, whilst the notion of the traditional 'family director' still exists, current economic pressures combined with universal internet access, means the modern consumer is far more likely to shop around for best value when tasked with arranging a funeral.

By choosing an NFFD approved funeral director, you can have absolute peace of mind that you will receive services of the very highest quality at prices you CAN afford. Also, all NFFD approved funeral directors are unique in that they have the facility to offer their clients low-interest payment terms allowing those on limited budgets to give a lost loved one their perfect send off.

With growing consumer awareness that some funeral directors' profit margins are disproportionate to their overheads, the NFFD has created the Fair Price Charter. All funeral directors who have subscribed to the Charter and who display the Fair Price Charter logo, do so having proven to the NFFD that their prices for a standard cremation funeral fall within figures considered fair and reasonable for the funeral director and the consumer alike.


Pre-Paid Funeral Plans

The passing of a loved-one is obviously a very daunting and emotional time for family and friends. For those responsible for arranging and paying for the funeral, discovering their loved-one had the foresight to take out a funeral plan goes a long way towards alleviating their sense of pain and distress.

With funeral costs rising far in excess of the annual rate of inflation, it is a sad fact that budgeting for a funeral by tradtional means may no longer be sufficient to cover the cost. Planning and paying for a funeral in advance freezes the cost of all the funeral director's fees and services, and protects your family against rising inflation and rising funeral expenses.


In recognition of their fair pricing, exceptional service standards, and value for money, Safe Hands Funeral Plans is the only funeral planning company to be officially endorsed by the National Federation of Funeral Directors.
