The fees cover cremation or burial fees, doctor’s and minister’s fees. The current national average for 3rd party fees is approximately £1,000. Please note that if you wish to be buried, the burial fee cover does include the cost of the ‘burial plot’.

What benefits are there in getting an ECO pre-paid funeral plan?

A green (eco) burial is less harmful to the environment than a more traditional non-green burial. The embalming of the body in a traditional burial utilizes a combination of chemical that eventually leak into the soil and can have negative effects on the surrounding environment. A tree is planted as part of the plan. A single tree over a hundred year period absorbs over a metric ton of carbon dioxide (CO2). If every person who was buried had a tree planted in their memory, it’s easy to imagine the positive impact on the environment for future generations.

The detailed list of services included in our eco-plans can be found further down this page. An important note to bear in mind is that all our eco plans currently do not include 3rd party (disbursements) fees. You can of course opt for a cremation service, although green funerals by design are burials as this is widely perceived as a natural way of returning your body to nature.
