What are the limitations of the Topaz option?
Excludes any allowance for disbursements/3rd party fees. These are elements that contribute to the overall cost of a funeral, but which are outside of the funeral directors control. They include the cremation or internment (burial) fees, doctor's medical fees, and ministers fees. With the Topaz option, the disbursements/3rd party fees would need to be paid directly to the funeral director at the time of the funeral.
Commitment to Quality
The direct cremation plan is the most basic, and therefore most affordable of all our funeral plan options. Here at safe hands funeral plans we understand that not everyone wants an extravagant or elaborate funeral. To many, there seemed little sense in spending heavily on what will be their final journey.

Collection of the deceased (from anywhere in the UK at no additional cost)
Storage of the deceased at Chapel of rest, pending cremation
A simple coffin with nameplate
Transport of the deceased to the crematorium
Return of Ashes to designated individual
what are the limitations of the direct cremation option?
There is no service for loved ones to attend or pay their final respects
There is no Chapel of rest viewing
The funeral director, and the crematorium used, may not necessarily be local and are chosen at the discretion of the safe hands funeral plans
