What is included in The Orchid Plan

The Orchid Plan is a simple funeral plan that covers the costs of all the practical and essential elements of a cremation, without the need to pay for traditional ceremonial aspects you might not want. It enables your family to organise a personalised funeral service in the crematorium chapel, with help from our professional experts over the phone. Your family can choose the ceremonial format, music, visual tributes and selection of a minister or celebrant.

This funeral plan does not include some of the more expensive costs such as a procession with a hearse and limousines, which means we can provide our funeral services for much less than a traditional Funeral Director.


  • Cremation fees with no more to pay for the services in your plan, regardless of when your plan is needed or how much costs will rise in the future
  • Guidance by our professional telephone team 24 hours a day, 365 days a year

Care of the deceased

  • Collection and transportation of the deceased within mainland Great Britain, carried out by trained funeral professionals at any time of day
  • To bring the deceased into care at our own mortuary facilities
  • An expert Funeral Director will prepare and dress the deceased in a simple gown for cremation

The service

  • A cremation at a CMG crematorium local to the place of rest
  • A full length service in the chapel with a ceremony organised by your family
  • A simple wood effect coffin
  • Return of ashes in a simple container within mainland Great Britain


  • If you move, your cremation only funeral plan moves with you at no extra cost to anywhere within mainland Great Britain

Additional services

  • Free telephone bereavement advice and support for your loved ones

What's not included in this simple funeral plan

It’s important to understand what isn’t included in The Orchid Plan. This plan does not include:

  • Doctor’s fees*
  • Embalming, memorial or headstone, flowers, catering/wake
  • Viewing of the deceased / chapel visits
  • Dressing the deceased in their own clothing or placing personal effects in the coffin
  • 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
  • A minister or celebrant (your family can arrange this at the time if they would like)
  • 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.
