Compare Funerals: Value and peace of mind for when the time comes

Compare Funerals Editorial Picture

Sooner or later, we will all need a funeral, and they can be a costly burden on the grieving family we leave behind if they are unprepared. 

Unplanned funerals can incur runaway costs that bring stress and aggravation exactly at the moment we are least prepared to deal with it.

Here at Compare Funerals, it is our mission to ease this weight by helping you and your family to plan ahead.

We offer a range of funeral plans with the best value in Spain which you can pay monthly over a five year period at 0% interest.

Our expert and caring team of English-speaking funeral directors are dotted all around Spain and able to deliver a dignified and respectful service.

When you choose one of our three funeral plans, the process will be as simple and stress-free as you could ever wish.

Our signature Direct Cremation plan offers a low-cost respectful send-off with our convenient and simple direct cremation service for a total of €2,250. 

You will be picked up by one of our funeral directors in a hearse and cremated in a nice and simple coffin and the ashes along with all legal documentation returned to your family. 

Our mid-range Terracotta funeral plan covers your funeral arrangements without a ceremony for €3,000.

With this option, the funeral director will hold your body for up to four days to give time for family and friends to have a final viewing and say their goodbyes.

Once we have received confirmation from the next of kin that everyone who needs to see the deceased has done so, we will proceed to cremate the deceased. 

A few days later the funeral director will return to the next of kin with the ashes in an urn and paperwork. 

The paperwork includes Spanish and international copies of your death certificate, as well as cremation certificates. 

Our most comprehensive Granite funeral plan includes a ceremony so your family can focus on grieving and cherishing memories €3,400.

It will work as the Terracotta plan, with your body held for four days and all the paperwork returned as above.

But with this plan a minister or celebrant will visit the family and discuss what they would like to be said at the ceremony. 

The funeral director will also discuss a suitable day and time for the ceremony, which will take place in a chapel. 

Once you choose your plan, our team of experts will take care of everything and take the worry off your shoulders and those of your loved ones.

You’ll receive all the necessary paperwork, and the money you pay towards your funeral plan will be held securely in a trust fund signed off by a third party.

When the time does come, someone you nominate must contact us at Compare Funerals and we take care of the rest.

Our emergency contact pack will provide your next of kin with all the information they need to take the necessary steps for when you pass.

Our hundreds of satisfied customers happily attest to the peace and comfort that our plans have provided for since 2020.

Our Signature Direct Cremation Plan

After developing years of experience setting up funeral plans in the UK, we noticed a shift in what people were looking for in a funeral.

It became very clear that a lot of people were looking for a simple, unattended Direct Cremation rather than the traditional service of old. 

With one of our directors living in Spain his whole life, we noticed that not many plan providers offered such a plan. 

This was surprising as the funeral system in Spain seems suited to this type of service. 

As funerals usually happen so quickly in comparison with other countries, coupled with the fact that a lot of expats have family living all over the world, we would have expected plan providers to offer a Direct Cremation. 

We could not get our heads round the fact that it was not so readily available by the larger plan providers here in Spain. 

Maybe it was the lower margins that put certain providers off – but not us. 

Our goal is to provide a service people want and need as simply as possible. 

It seems that other providers have followed suit and now offer clients the simple plan a lot of people desire. 

We are proud of the fact we helped initiate this change so that more people are able to get the send-off they want.
