At Rest Assured, we make choosing a funeral director as simple as it can be.

If you have a preferred funeral director that you’d like to use, just let us know. If they are already on our panel, all well and good; if not, we’ll invite them to join our scheme.

If there isn’t a specific firm you’re keen to use, or if your selected firm isn’t available at the time of need for any reason – because they’re no longer trading for example – we’ll appoint a local firm for you that’s able to meet your specified needs from our extensive and growing panel of funeral plan providers.

For your peace of mind, the funeral directors we work with are, needless to say, highly reputable businesses. They are all subjected to stringent due diligence checks before they’re permitted to join our panel and their performance is continuously monitored thereafter to ensure that the very high standards we require of them are being consistently maintained.

Our Elm, Oak, Cedar & Mahogany funeral packages include an allowance towards the disbursement costs. If you are happy for Rest Assured to nominate a Funeral Director on your behalf from our panel of reputable firms then the disbursement costs will be covered in full. If you opt to select your own funeral director then the plans will include an allowance of £1,100 towards the disbursements, which will cover the majority of possible costs. If at the time of the funeral the disbursements are over the £1,100 allowance, the funeral director will ask for the shortfall from the family or from the estate.
