Can I change my Co-op burial plan to a cremation plan?
Yes, if you’ve previously bought a burial plan and wish to change to cremation, or change your cremation plan to a burial plan, you can do. If there are any changes in costs, we’ll let you know what these are when you contact us. Get in touch with us either via live chat or call us on 0800 289 120 to update your plan and receive new updated plan documents in the post.
How much does a Co-op cremation plan cost?
Co-op cremation plan costs differ depending on what services you’d like included in your plan. Prices start from £3,225 for our Simple Cremation Plan, and up to £4,460 for our Gold Cremation Plan. You can choose to pay in full, spread the cost over 6–12 months with no extra costs or pay over 2–25 years.
What are the benefits of pre-paying for my cremation?
If you choose to pay in instalments over 2–25 years and die after 12 months, as long as your payments are up to date, we won’t collect the rest of the balance on the plan and our Funeral Director will deliver the services in the plan^.
Unlike most funeral plan providers, at the Co-op we both plan and carry out your funeral, meaning you can be sure that every detail in your plan will be as you wanted. You can also be confident that a Co-op funeral director will be conducting your funeral with all the care and high standards you would expect from us. Other plan providers may ask you to nominate an independent funeral director, but they can’t guarantee that they will be the ones carrying out the funeral.
