Safehands The Ruby Funeral Plan
Safehands Funeral Plans - Ruby funeral plan provides our most comprehensive package. With its additional provision of an oak-effect, veneered, coffin and two following limousines, it is particularly suited to those with large families, or who favour the idea of a more lavish farewell.

Need to pay monthly?
*If, at the time of your funeral, the £1,200 disbursements allowance (+RPI uplift) is insufficient to cover the actual cost of the cremation fee, doctor's fee, and minister's/celebrant's fee for the service at the crematorium, then your representatives will be required to pay the shortfall before the funeral takes place.
**Additional mileage, if applicable, will be charged at the funeral director's prevailing rate at the time of death.
***All plans excluding the 'Your Simplest' & Direct Cremation plan options, gives you the option to nominate a funeral director that you would prefer to undertake your funeral. Then, at the time of your funeral, we will offer the benefit of your funeral to your nominated preferred firm. However, if your nominated preferred funeral director is, for any reason, unavailable or unwilling to undertake the service, then it will instead be conducted by an alternative local funeral director at Safe Hands Funeral Plans' discretion. NOTE: Customers are not permitted to nominate funeral directors that are owned by Dignity Plc at the current time.
Please see our full terms and conditions for more details (these can be requested at any time, just ask).
