Funeral Poverty pledge

Find funeral directors who have signed

I am a funeral director - I want to sign

Ask my funeral director to sign


Buying a funeral can be expensive and confusing. It's difficult to find clear, comparable information about what things cost. And there are huge differences in what funeral directors charge.

Without knowing what our options are, we can end up buying funerals we can’t afford and getting into debt.

That’s why we’re asking funeral directors to sign the Fair Funerals pledge. When they sign the pledge, they’re committing:

  1. To recognise that funerals can be expensive and many people struggle with the cost.
  2. To help people to find funerals that are within their means. 
  3. To be open about their most affordable options, including third party costs:

    - in initial conversations 

    - within their price lists

    - on their website.
