Funeral plan providers: application status

Search our list of pre-paid funeral plan providers to find out more about their applications for authorisation.

After 29 July 2022, if you already have a funeral plan, or if you’re looking to buy one, the provider must be authorised by us. Intermediaries selling funeral plans on behalf of providers must also be authorised by us or be appointed representatives.

The list below contains information about funeral plan providers known to be operating in the market, including their address and whether they have applied for authorisation. 

If a provider has confirmed that it will not apply for authorisation, has withdrawn its application, or been refused, you should not buy a new plan from it. If you already have a plan with a provider that is not approved for authorisation by 29 July 2022, it should contact you to inform you of the next steps for your plan.

We will update this list regularly to provide details on the status of applications we've received. 

Remember, just because a provider appears on this list, it doesn’t mean we have assessed it to be fit and proper. It also doesn’t mean that we will authorise the provider if it does apply. Check the list regularly to get updates on a provider’s application status. 

Please note, this list is not exhaustive. There may be other funeral plan providers than those listed here. If a plan provider is not listed, please email [email protected].

Funeral plans before our regulation 

Until 29 July 2022, firms involved in pre-paid funeral plans don't have to be regulated by us. This means we don’t set the rules for how firms sell or manage funeral plans. 

As a consumer, this means you don’t have access to the Financial Ombudsman Service if you have a complaint against a funeral plan firm. You also don’t have protection from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) if your provider or intermediary fails.

Find out what our regulation will mean for you and what you should consider before our regulation starts.

List of providers:

The list may not reflect a provider’s status as soon as it applies. It will be updated at regular intervals. This list was last updated on 29 September 2021.
