Unlike some review websites Trustpilot offer consumers the opportunity to review their customer experience without the need to have made a purchase or be invited by the seller.

What should I look for when buying a funeral plan?
If you’re shopping around for a funeral plan, it’s really important to understand exactly what’s covered in your plan.
Here are some tips for choosing a plan that’s right for you:
Always use a company that is registered with the Funeral Planning Authority (FPA). The FPA is there to help protect consumers’ interests and make sure funeral plan providers follow a Code of Practice.
Check where your money will be held. You should choose a provider that has either an independently-managed Trust or the plans are backed by a life insurance policy.
Read real customer reviews. Don’t just rely on what the company is telling you – compare ratings and reviews on sites like Trustpilot or Google Reviews
Make sure your funeral plan offers protection against inflation and that allowances for third party costs increase every year in line with the Consumer Price Index.
Think about how you’d like to pay. Are you looking to pay in one lump sum, or monthly instalments? Check that your chosen provider can offer flexible payment options.
Think about the type of funeral you want. Do you want a small, fuss-free cremation, or a traditional service and burial? Be sure to compare different plans to see which one will give you the type of funeral you want.
