Dignity Funeral Plan £100 off opportunity

06 March 2020

If you purchase a funeral plan from The National Careline before the 30th April 2020, you are eligible for a discount of £100.

Planning a funeral is not just about financial matters. It’s about you making the decisions about what you want to happen at your funeral and making sure everyone knows your wishes.

A funeral plan was regarded as a necessity by people of the older generation who used to pay their pennies to the insurance man each week to pay for their funeral expenses and the Guinness and sandwiches at their wake. In fact, in this period of history it was regarded as shameful if you didn’t have sufficient funds to bury yourself.

So pre-paid funeral plans have been around for many years in various guises and they are a promise to pay the costs of the type of funeral you have chosen whenever they are required to be met in the future. This is a valuable promise as it is regardless of the increases in funeral costs over the years.

There are many companies offering these plans and, at The National Careline, we are totally independent of any companies and search the market to find you the best price for the funeral that you want to have.

From time to time, we also receive special offers and this one from Dignity is currently available.
