  • make good choices

  • create a funeral you’re proud of

 We know who the good guys are

Before you do anything else

A bad funeral cannot be fixed. So read, print and give a copy of this to everyone involved: First Things First

Check out: Your legal rights and responsibilities

Shop around. Think twice before using a Co-operative Funeralcare or Dignity plc funeral director. They cost more than we think they should. 

We’re here for you, not them

We’re the consumer group that stands clear of the funeral industry. That’s what makes us different. 

We earn no money from advertising or commissions. We’re not in a commercial relationship with anybody. We’re skint and proud of it.

That’s why you can trust us. We are free to say exactly what we think – and we do.

The GFG Prepaid Funeral Plan

In partnership with Open Prepaid Funeral Plans Ltd we now offer our own prepaid funeral plan. It is radically innovative and offers unrivalled empowerment and value for money to people wanting to ringfence money for their funeral.
