Funeral Planning

Having a funeral plan is a secure and cost-effective way of making sure everything is planned and paid for in advance, all at today’s prices.

Our funeral planning services can make things easier for you, while supporting your family at what will be a distressing time for them.

We can ensure you have all arrangements in place, including:

Choosing a funeral director
Costs being accounted for
Having specified wishes carried out

At Philip Anthony Associates, we have more than one funeral planning partner, who can take the stress out of making detailed arrangements and they can take care of things you would rather not leave up to your loved ones to manage.


The services our partners provide are divided into a variety of plan options that match your own budget and preferences.Our partners offer several different payment options from a one off lump sum payment to spreading the cost monthly.

You then have the freedom to add to your plan as you see fit, to ensure our funeral planning services are catered for you.


It’s highly recommended to put funeral plans in place at the earliest opportunity to financially make the most of current prices. Back in 2004, the average cost of a funeral within the UK was around £1,920. However, recent reports (Royal London 2016) have shown this cost has now risen to £3,675 – meaning the cost has increased by more than 50% in just over a decade. If this trend continues, the average cost of a funeral by 2030 will reach over £5,500.

Let your family have the reassurance that your wishes are being carried out, with no financial burdens.
