About Open Prepaid Funerals

Open Prepaid Funerals Limited was formed in 2003 with the aim of providing a financially secure and

ethical method of planning a future funeral by specialising in prepaid funeral plans. We offer a range

of prepaid funeral plans, from a low-key unattended cremation to attended services designed to suit

a variety of requirements. You can also create almost anything you require in our very detailed and

unique bespoke plan.

The cost of your prepaid funeral plan depends entirely on the plan you choose, your personal

preference and the level of service that you require. The expert team of Open Advisers will talk you

through this on the telephone, online using a webcam, or if required, face to face.

Once set up, your payment is made into The Open Prepaid Funerals Trust Fund, where it is managed

by professional fund managers, overseen by a board of trustees and independently audited annually.

The trust deed has been created in such a way that its purpose is to offer greater protection to you

the plan holder and your family or estate. We here at Woodland Wishes Ltd will have the

responsibility for the provision of your funeral on behalf of you through Open Prepaid Funerals.

Why Choose a Prepaid Funeral Plan

By choosing a prepaid funeral plan, this is a simple and practical way to let your loved ones know

that everything is taken care of. Some of the main benefits include:

Reduces financial burden – as the funeral plan will be paid up front or in monthly

instalments, this can reduce the financial burden on loved ones when the time comes.


Can alleviate emotional stress - planning your funeral beforehand helps to alleviate

added stress, but also provides a caring solution to decrease emotional stress on your

loved ones.

Funeral Director professional fees are fixed – although funeral plan prices may fluctuate

due to inflation, the price of the funeral directors professional services is fixed at the

time the plan has been bought – meaning that your plan is safe for years to come.

Contribution to disbursements – your plan can include a contribution to third party

costs, such as; the crematorium cost, a minister or officiant to carry out the service,

flowers or obituary notices. Your contribution to disbursements is not guaranteed to be

covered and your family or estate may have to make an additional contribution at the

time of need. A list of potential disbursements are available in our terms and conditions.

Individual personalisation – by choosing a prepaid funeral plan, you can decide on the

theme of your own funeral yourself and ensure that everything is to your taste and

personal preference ahead of the time.

By choosing a local independent funeral director with Open Prepaid Funerals, you can receive a high-

quality experience along with the expertise required – allowing you to be safe in the knowledge your

funeral is taken care of when the time comes. Simply get in touch with us and we will arrange an

appointment with an Open Adviser or you can contact Open directly on 0330 660 0072 to get the

process started.
