We are now authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

From 29 July 2022, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) will regulate the pre-paid funeral plan market.

We are pleased to share that we are now authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

We are authorised and regulated by the FCA under our funeral planning legal entity, Low Cost Funeral Limited, trading as Affordable Funerals. This is our side of the business which sells and arranges funeral plans. Our authorisation status can be found on the FCAs website and our FRN number is 965287.

One of the requirements of the FCA in the Funeral Plan Conduct of Business Handbook is in regard to ensuring money from clients is protected. To provide customers with reassurance, whilst we are progressing with our application, we wanted to make you aware that our funeral plan funds are invested with Scottish Friendly, who are authorised and regulated by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority. Details can be found on the Financial Services Register, registration number 110002.

If you would like to any further detail on our application or how funds are held, please contact us 0800 862 0150.
