What's not included in a Simplicity Prepaid Funeral Plan

It’s important to understand what isn’t included in a Simplicity Prepaid Funeral Plan. The Plan does not include:

  • Doctor’s fees*
  • Embalming, memorial or headstone, flowers, catering/wake
  • Viewing of the deceased / chapel visits
  • A hearse
  • Limousine for family/mourners
  • Funeral procession from home/funeral home to a service location as the deceased will be transported directly to the crematorium on the day of the funeral
  • Co-ordination of any flowers or tributes and managing collection and payments of any charitable donations
  • Repatriation from outside mainland Great Britain
  • Costs for removing artificial limbs and mechanisms such as pacemakers
  • Costs associated with changes in regulations, tax, laws or generally accepted practice, which result in additional costs or affect the conduct of the funeral

* Medical certification fees. For deaths where a coroner investigation is required, there are no medical certifications fees. Also, changes to legislation in May 2015 mean there will no longer be a charge for a medical certification for any deaths registered in Scotland. Similar legal changes are being considered for the rest of the UK, so we do not include provision for these fees in our Plans. If the funeral takes place outside of Scotland, and a coroner is not involved, then if applicable, the medical certification fees should be paid by the next of kin or personal representative, when arranging the funeral.
