Direct Cremation Funeral Plan Spain
Our best value funeral plan is designed for those who just want a direct cremation with no service.
The Direct Cremation funeral plan provides for the collection of the deceased, a cremation without attendees or service and the return of the ashes in a simple urn. As there is no provision to view the deceased before the cremation, there is no facility to attend the cremation and no funeral service, this cremation plan is our most cost effective plan and is ideal for those who want time to consider and arrange a more personal memorial service at a later date.

- Attending to all necessary funeral arrangements
- The funeral director’s services

- 24 hours’ mortuary expenses

After that, you’ll get your money back but we’ll keep a €274 / £239 charge for administration.

Credit-financed payment* paying in Sterling – this is a loan and it’s subject to status and personal circumstances so you’re not guaranteed to be accepted.

You will have a cooling off period which is the longer of 30 days from the date of the call or 7 days from when we tell you who the allocated funeral director is.

Guaranteed International Plans. If you move back to the UK your plan will become a financial contribution towards the cost of a funeral in the UK.

What happens to the money I paid for my plan? – We help many thousands of customers to plan and fund their funerals. Because of economies of scale, we can sell our plans to our customers at a rate which is usually far more cost effective than it would be for them buying from a funeral director at the time of the funeral itself. As a commercial enterprise, we have costs of doing business and promotional marketing. These costs are met by supply side economies of scale delivered by our ability to purchase funerals in bulk and are consequently absorbed into the price of our plans.
We retain an amount from the price paid by you for your plan (which is currently €274 / £239) to cover our administrative costs of running the business for the life of each plan, which is approximately 11 years. We also retain an amount (which currently ranges between €404 / £350.70 and €834 / £724 dependent on which plan you purchase) to cover marketing, sales fulfilment expenses and to provide the business with an element of profit. The balance is placed in the Trust in order to pay the appointed funeral director and other costs of the agreed funeral (for further information, please see our Commission and Payment Disclosure and refer to our fees and payments breakdown summary table for further details).
