 *If a burial is required, the services marked with an asterisk are not covered by the guarantee. This is because burial costs vary widely so cannot be fully guaranteed in the same way as a cremation. Instead, a contribution of £1,200, which rises in line with inflation, is made towards burial fees and any services provided by third parties (such as Minister's or Officiant's fees). If you are interested in a burial funeral, please call Dignity on 0800 652 3345.*
