Gemelli have teamed up with one of the UK’s premier funeral plan providers. As one of the UK’s premier funeral plan providers, it is of paramount importance at Safe Hands that plan-holders’ investments are safe and secure. Set up in conjunction with Wrigleys LLP (a law firm specialising in trust funds), great care has been taken to ensure the fund in which customers’ monies are invested, complies with all current legislation as set out in the Regulated Activities Order (Financial Services and Markets Act 2000).

What is a funeral plan? 

A funeral plan is a means by which people can protect their loved ones against rising funeral costs and help eliminate any uncertainty or indecision regarding what a person’s preferred arrangements should include.

Should I have one?

Over the last 2 decades, funeral costs have risen far in excess of the annual rate of inflation. With a Funeral Plan, regardless of however long you live, or however much the funeral directors fees and services cost when you pass away, your loved ones won’t be required to pay anything towards them.

How does it work? 

Safe Hands work on the same basis as other funeral plan providers, in that the money a customer pays for their plan is invested in a ring-fenced trust fund. Through investment of the trust fund, the monies grow in value over the course of the plan- holder’s lifetime. Then, when the plan-holder passes away, monies (+RPI uplift) are released from the trust fund and paid to a local, reputable, potentially nominated, funeral director who then carries out the funeral in accordance with instructions contained in the plan.

What's included?

Safe Hands offer 5 different funeral plan options to suit different tastes and budgets. All, as an absolute minimum, include a hearse, a lined and fitted coffin, 24 hour transfer of the deceased, care and preparation of the deceased, and funeral director’s fees and services. Also, all options, with the exception of the Topaz, include a £1,200 allowance towards disbursements (otherwise known as 3rd party fees).
