Funeral Planning

For the 'Perfect Goodbye'

FAIR PRICE CHARTER & FAIR FUNERAL PLEDGE


We are pleased and honoured to announce that Stevenson Funeral Directors are member of the N.F.F.D and part of the ’Fair Price Charter’. We recently signed the’ Fair Funeral Pledge’ which was launched by Quaker Social Action this year who are a registered charity. Should you require further information regarding this please feel free to contact us.
 
It is our belief that in order to give your loved one a respectful, dignified and memorable funeral, it need not cost a fortune. Our aim is to offer all the helpful and relevant information regarding pre-plan funeral and pre-arranged funerals, the choice is then up to you. Once you have made your decision on the type of plan you want, the plan is held with us and the money is held securely with the company. At no time is this money touched. When the time comes for the funeral to take place, the plan will then be actioned according to the company and details set out prior. No matter when this may happen, all arrangements and costs will be honoured, there will be no hidden costs. However, should a family wish to add something that is not within the plan, then a new costing and estimate will be provided for in which the family will be liable for payment.
 
Should a situation arise whereby someone should pass suddenly without a plan or arrangement in place, we will do our upmost to assist in this area. Should there be financial hardship at this time we can refer you to ‘Social Fund’, which is means tested through the DWP and also Fair Funerals in which we can contact ‘Down to Earth’ for further advice.
 
We take pride in knowing our reputation for honesty, integrity and transparency stands strong within our local community here in Fife.

Pre-Paid Funerals & Pre-Arranged Funerals


A pre-paid funeral plan allows you to make your funeral choice and to pay for it in advance. Payment can be made in full or over a period of time according to the terms and conditions in place. By having a pre-paid funeral plan, you and your family have peace of mind and save money by paying at today's prices. We work with you to make sure that you are able to forward plan your own memorial providing you and your family with 100% financial security.
 
Pre-arranged funeral plans differ in that you finalise the funeral arrangements for the future in advance, but the payment is made at the time of the funeral. This is a popular way to make sure you get the memorial you wish for, and that your family do not have to concern themselves with the arrangements.
 
All funeral costs are a combination of the Funeral Directors charges (covering the funeral services and arrangements) and disbursement costs (third party costs). We are happy to offer instalment payment options. Prices quoted include £225.00 administration fee. Prices are valid from April 2015. Payment by credit card incurs a 2.75% surcharge.

PRE-PAID FUNERAL PLANS


A pre-paid funeral plan allows you to make the choices regarding the future and pay for it well in advance. This way, you and your family have peace of mind and you save money by paying today's prices. We work with you to make sure that you are able to plan and pay for your own memorial and relieve your family of the burden, with 100% financial security.

PRE-ARRANGED FUNERAL PLANS


Pre-arranged funeral plans differ in that you finalise the funeral arrangements for the future in advance, but the payment is made at the time of death. This is a popular way to make sure you get the memorial you wish for if you prefer not to pay at the same time. We are happy to advise you and arrange the right pre-arranged funeral plans for you.

All funeral costs are a combination of the funeral directors charges (covering the funeral services and arrangements which we directly take care of) and disbursement costs (other charges which are paid for the other administration surrounding a death, which we do not cover in our estimate). We are happy to offer installment payment options. Prices quoted include £175 administration fee and are valid until April 2015.
