We look at how Chronicle readers can protect their loved ones with a funeral plan from Dignity.

When it comes to protecting loved ones from difficult decisions or financial stress, no one thinks twice about making a Will or taking out life assurance. Now more people are taking out a funeral plan, so that family and friends won't have the worry of organising and paying for funeral arrangements at an upsetting time.

At the Chronicle we believe that it's important not to leave loved ones exposed to the prospect of a large and possibly unexpected bill for funeral costs.

The Guaranteed Funeral Plan from Dignity guarantees to cover the necessary costs of a traditional cremation funeral, no matter how much costs rise in the years ahead.

So why not call Dignity today on 0800 484 0387 quoting MGNR4ND for a no-obligation information pack, free pen and a PS50 discount for Chronicle readers.
