I would highly recommend MGF. Marie guided us kindly and professionally from the first initial phone call to the final signing. She provided an un-pressured, user friendly service, that was very personal and efficient. We were very ignorant around the whole subject of wills and lasting powers of attorney, but Marie always made us feel that no question was a stupid one, and gave her time and attention to ensure we understood all that was involved. We have peace of mind now that we have everything in order, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Marie.

I found this lady's business on an online search for a local will writer / solicitor for my Mother & I to write our wills after having not so positive experiences with previous companies we'd tried & Mum preferred to relate to a lady & I found that she was in our area & the only 1 who had 100% 5* Star ratings from all her customers who'd left reviews ! So we contacted her & went from there ! 🙂 We could not have found or wished for anyone better ! She offers such a personal service & is so easy to communicate with & is very knowledgeable & goes "the extra mile", nothing seems too much trouble & despite being a very busy woman, she gives as many extra hours of her time as her clients need & she does it all at a set fee ! She does not charge extra add on, additional charges for every hour, phonecall, Zoom call, visit, paperwork she does for you, she keeps to the very competitive price she quoted at the outset, which we found most unusual & refreshingly nice & welcome & very much appreciated indeed, no hidden charges or fear of nasty, frightening financial surprises ! She is such a very lovely person, personable, natural & relaxed to deal with, competent & efficient, keeps her word & punctual, doesn't let you down. We couldn't find better & she truly exceeded our expectations & we will use her again as she offers multiple legal services as listed on her website. Thank you Marie !

Friendly advise & clear directions making completing our 1st Wills very straight forward. Have already recommended to a friend. It didn’t matter that it was all completed over the phone rather than face to face.

Marie drew up the wills for my partner and I. She was professional and accommodating throughout the entire process. Everything was explained clearly and there was no such thing as a silly question. She even took the time to walk us through the signing process with our neighbours! We would thoroughly recommend Marie and will be using her in future if and when we need to update our wills.

The Dignity Promise

If you choose to pay for your Dignity Funeral Plan over more than 12 months, and pass away before you’ve finished paying for it, Dignity will cover your outstanding balance. Dignity will not ask your loved ones to pay a penny more than you’ve already paid for all the services included in your plan.

Frequently asked questions

What is a funeral plan?

A funeral plan is essentially a promise to deliver a funeral at a date in the future. While funeral costs are rising faster than inflation, purchasing a funeral plan fixes the cost of the funeral at today’s prices. Funeral plans also allow you to make special requests and wishes for the funeral, such as music or readings, to ensure your loved ones arrange the funeral that you want, when the time comes.

Are there alternatives to a funeral plan?

Some people consider over 50s life insurance policies, ISAs or savings accounts to cover the cost of their funeral. However, these can prove unreliable in covering funeral costs as they don’t take into account the rising cost of funerals. You could also end up paying in much more than you would be paid out – which in turn could lead to further funds being needed when the time comes, putting stress and burden on your loved ones. Furthermore, banks and financial companies won’t help with the funeral organisation – Dignity will. For total reassurance for yourself and your family, a funeral plan is the most practical choice.

What are the benefits of a funeral plan from Dignity?

• Dignity is a stable company with a long and reliable history, and is registered with the Funeral Planning Authority.
• There’s a choice of four individual funeral plans, all of which guarantee to cover the funeral director’s fees for arranging and conducting a cremation or burial funeral, no matter how far in the future it may be needed and how much funeral costs may rise in that time.
• Dignity funeral plans also cover the crematorium fee and Minister fees.
• For burial services, Dignity provides a contribution of £1,220 which grows each year with the Retail Price index (RPI) – this can be used towards costs charged by third parties, such as the Minister or Officiant, cemetery costs or purchase of a burial plot.
• You can personalise your plan by making your wishes known – including a favourite song or reading, specifying your choice of flowers, or giving guidance on your chosen location.
• If your circumstances change, or you change your mind, Dignity will refund the money you’ve paid. A cancellation fee is only charged if you cancel after 30 days of taking out your plan.
• With access to Dignity’s network of over 800 Funeral Directors, if you move house at any point after taking out your plan, it’s easy to change your nominated Funeral Director.
• Your money is held in the National Funeral Trust – a totally independent, secure trust fund.
