Age Co was formally known as Age UK, the country’s largest charity dedicated to helping people make the most of later life. The charity has been working with Dignity, a funeral service provider with a long and proud history of serving local communities, for more than 25 years, and has access to a network of over 1,300 funeral directors.
The Basic Plan
This plan covers the Funeral Director’s fees for arranging and conducting the funeral. It includes a basic coffin and a hearse from the Funeral Director’s premises straight to the crematorium or burial site. It also offers visits to the chapel of rest for your family by appointment during business hours.
Total cost £2,870 (monthly £15.09)
The Ivy Plan
This affordable plan is largely the same as above, except The Ivy Plan provides a wood effect coffin rather than a basic one.
Total cost £3,270 (monthly £17.20)
The Holly Plan
This popular plan, in addition to the other plans, proves a quality wood effect coffin and includes one limousine funeral procession for the family to transport them to the service.
Total cost £3,625 (monthly £19.07)
The Rowan Plan
The Rowan Plan is designed for larger families, providing two limousines to transport the family to the service, as well as any other separate location in the procession. The plan includes a high quality wood veneer coffin.
Total cost £3,870 (monthly £20.35)
In addition to funeral plans, Age Co also offers equity release programs, a range of legal services and car, home and travel insurance.
