What's included in the Traditional funeral plan

The Traditional Plan is Damsons’ most affordable yet complete plan. It includes for the services provided for by the Funeral Director, a service at the crematorium and a generous allowance towards third party fees (Disbursements). It has been designed to give a quality farewell, whilst minimizing any further expenses your loved ones will have to cover.

All the Funeral Directors costs are covered in this plan, and they will be there to guide and help your family on all aspects of the service and any other necessary aspects that need to be covered.

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).
