Can anyone apply for a Funeral Plan from Mears of Aylesbury?
Yes. Our plans are available to everyone, regardless of age or state of health.
What happens once I have bought my plan?
We will send you a plan documents folder with all the information about your plan, as well as a membership card.
What if I change my mind?
If you cancel within 30 days we will refund the payment you have made. For details of cancellation terms after 30 days, please see the plan terms and conditions.
What if I have special requests for my funeral?
You can tell us about any special wishes for your funeral when you apply. If these involve extra costs, you may be able to add these on to the total cost of your plan.
What happens when I die?
Just one phone call and it is all taken care of. Your plan documents folder contains our contact details. When the time comes your family simply contacts us and quotes your plan number. We will then take care of all the arrangements.
What if I die in another country?
If you intend to travel overseas, we recommend that your travel or medical insurance policy includes cover for repatriation costs back to the UK. Your funeral plan covers the cost of transportation of the body from the relevant UK airport or port to our premises.
Can I transfer my plan to someone else?
Yes, your plan can be transferred and used for the funeral of a spouse or other family member if they die before you. There would be extra costs if the funeral arrangements differ from what is specified in the plan, for example, burial instead of cremation, an additional limousine or a different location.
What happens if I die before I have made all the payments?
This will depend on the type of payment method you have chosen. Please refer to the terms and conditions for more information.
Can I take out a plan for anyone else?
Yes, just complete the plan holder’s representative section on the application form, and we’ll arrange for all correspondence to be sent to you.
What if I move to a different area?
Please let us know you are moving so we can update our records. You will have the option to move your plan to a different funeral director, if required.
