What's included in the Simple funeral plan

The Simple funeral plan does not include 3rd party charges. Except for Simple, all Damsons plans contain a 3rd party fee allowance of £1000.

A lined & fitted basic veneer coffin comes with our two cheaper funeral plans. These are simple designs constructed with thin lines of wood, complete with a soft interior. Some people prefer a subtle coffin, and the Simple and Ceremonial plans offer just that.

If you have a small family and tight group of close-knit friends, it may be worth opting for the Simple package. This funeral plan will cater perfectly for smaller crowds.

How can I pay for my funeral plan?

You can pay for your funeral plan in two different ways – either in one lump sum or over several years. By paying in one “lump sum”, all your funeral plan costs are covered. That’s it. Everything is paid for and you can relax in the knowledge that you’ll never have to make another contribution to your funeral.

Paying for your whole funeral plan up front is not something everyone can afford to do, which is why we’ve set up a system which allows customers to pay in instalments. You can also choose the period over which you’d like to make your payments: 1, 3, 5, 10, or 15 years.

It all depends on whether you want to get your charges out of the way as quickly as possible. No interest is charged on funeral plans which are purchased straight away or over a period of 1 year. If you pay for your plan over 3 years + then you will be charged interest at a flat rate of 5.9%.

To help you understand these charges, we’ve put together price tables for all our funeral plans (based on the recommended deposit of £200).
