A.H. Cheater Funeral Directors are pleased to announce that its range of pre-paid funeral plans can now be purchased online, from the comfort of your home.

Over the last six months, we have all been spending more time indoors. Many of us have had no choice but to cancel routine appointments, rethink our day-to-day routines and even put off making essential arrangements for the future.

With the launch of A.H. Cheater’s new buy-online system, at least one of these things can now be ticked off our to-do lists.

Many people wish to plan ahead for their funeral, with the main motivation being to reduce the worry for their loved ones. Often, people do not get round to talking to their families about the kind of funeral they would like, which can lead to all sorts of anxiety for loved ones when the time comes. But taking out a pre-paid funeral plan is a sensible and cost-effective way to ensure your funeral wishes are known and logged.

A.H. Cheater’s new, online funeral plans facility is provided by a leading UK funeral plan provider, Ecclesiastical Planning Services. It enables customers to plan and make provisions with us in just 3 simple steps.

The online application can be completed in just a few minutes. Ecclesiastical Planning Services then arranges for the funeral plan pre-payment to be held in a guaranteed whole of life assurance policy until it is needed. Every penny (minus the management fee) is ring-fenced and cannot be used for any other purpose.

The whole of life assurance company used is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and regulated by the PRA and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Funeral plans themselves are not regulated by the PRA or FCA, but Ecclesiastical Planning Services is registered with the Funeral Planning Authority.

Terms and conditions apply to funeral plans – please ask for details. At this stage we are only able to offer one of our 4 set plans as buy online. If your requirements do not fit within one of these, a person plan can be arranged with us directly.
