Independent Funeral Directors
Serving Dorset for over 100 years

At Douch Family Funeral Directors we provide pre-paid funeral plans in Dorset which enable you to choose what type of funeral you’d like, instead of your family and friends having to guess. With a funeral payment plan, you can spare your relatives a financial burden at the time of your death. At Douch Family Funeral Directors we offer set funeral payment plans or we can create a bespoke pre-paid funeral plan to suit your individual priorities.

When it comes to the prepaid funeral costs, you pay today’s price, regardless of when the funeral may be needed. And, you can opt to do so through a one-off payment or through regular instalments. Our pre-paid funeral payments are held in a guaranteed whole of life assurance policy with Ecclesiastical Planning Service which is part of the Ecclesiastical group.

Your pre-paid funeral will be provided by one of our local, independent funeral directors in Dorset. If you move away you can transfer your plan through a network of professional firms across the UK.

There’s no age limit and we won’t ask any questions about your health. There’s flexibility to amend the plan if you change your mind later.

“Most of us, as we get older, expect to provide money to meet our funeral expenses. We’re not morbid. It’s to do with independence and responsibility. We want to leave everything in order for our relatives and friends. We don’t often talk about it – because there’s no need to – but the fact is that funerals cost money, and we want to take care of the cost.”

Included within the price of funeral payment plans is a contribution towards other expenses, such as crematorium or cemetery fees, doctors’ fees for a cremation certificate and minister’s or church fees – these fees are known as “disbursements”.

The amount included for disbursements will be increased annually in line with the Retail Price Index but please note that these costs are outside of our control and cannot be guaranteed. You can include a larger (or smaller) contribution to disbursements if you wish, and the plan price will be amended accordingly.
