Our opinion

With all the points mentioned above we think it's important to carefully consider choosing Open Prepaid Funerals for a funeral plan, and we want to re-iterate the points below. If you do go with Open they have a 30 day money back guarantee if you're not happy with the plan or service, make sure you cancel within the 30 day time limit.

  • Open Prepaid Funerals are not registered with the Funeral Planning Authority so will not be under the same scrutiny as FPA members.
  • Funeral plans are merely a contribution, which means you may end up paying on top out of your own / your family's pocket to make up the difference.
  • Unclear on funeral director choice. 
  • Getting a refund on any funeral plan you take out after the initial 30 days may prove to be hard work, due to the stipulations of the promise.

"Nobody likes to think about their funeral, and I’m no exception. But what I thought was even worse than thinking about my funeral was the fear that my children would be burdened by having to pay for it."
