Funeral Planning Journey

Other Services

Empathy UK have partnered with a number of Legal and Financial experts to offer you a number of other services. For further information on any of these services, call our friendly support team, free, on 0800 035 5729 and we will be happy to discuss your needs.

Bereavement Support

Bereavement is an emotional, difficult and distressing time. When someone dies, there will be many matters to attend to, from registering a death through to stopping unwanted mail, to the legal side, known as probate, all of which you may be unfamiliar with. We are therefore proud to partner with the National Bereavement Service, who are a not for profit organisation. The National Bereavement Service have a specialist bereavement team who are able to help guide you and your loved ones through the steps that have to be completed when someone dies, dealing with the legal matters concerning the assets of the deceased person, or are there simply if you need someone to talk to. To further help you this is a free service and is included within all of Empathy UK’s Funeral Plans.

Making a Will

Making a Will is something that most of us would prefer to put off until another day. It is, however, one of the most important things that you can do. It means that your wishes are clear about what you would like to happen after you die and gives you peace of mind.

Empathy UK believe Will writing doesn’t need to be complicated and we offer a free writing service to all of our Planholders which you can request without obligation. Please contact us if you would like to accept this offer.

Protect your assets with a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)

A Lasting Power of Attorney is an important legal document which can make sure your affairs are managed by someone you trust during your lifetime.

This may be needed if you become unable to do so yourself, perhaps through old age, illness or accident. Empathy UK’s legal partners can help you through all the stages of creating an LPA at a fixed cost. Please contact us if you would like more information.

Probate and Estate Administration

It is a stressful time when a loved one dies and dealing with their affairs is the last thing you’ll want to do. You may not be sure of what you need to do next. Dealing with tax, legal processes and other administration can all add to this. Empathy UK Legal Partners can help you through the whole process, giving you advice and support every step of the way.

Financial Services

Empathy UK work closely with a team of FCA approved Independent Financial Advisors who can offer advice on the following areas:

  • Equity Release
  • Inheritance Tax Planning
  • Pensions Advice
  • Investment Advice

Celebration of Life Video

At Empathy UK we can help you celebrate and treasure your memories by transforming a lifetime of photographs and home videos into a digital keepsake, presented on a crystal glass USB key in a bespoke linen box.

It will create something that you can pass down the generations.

Scatter your ashes in outer space

We are all made of Stardust. So why not have your ashes scattered in space?

Your final journey will be your release into the stratosphere, the very edge of space and a place of absolute serenity.

A memorial video recording the journey and moment of release, against the stunning backdrop of Earth, is optional.

Diamonds created from your ashes

You can now have a memorial diamond created using your own ashes.

Deciding how and where to scatter a loved ones ashes can be a painful process. Having a keepsake of a loved one as a piece of jewellery is the perfect way to keep their memory close.

The process involves selecting a diamond size and setting, sending a portion of the ashes away and then the diamond is created in a laboratory by compressing them under extreme pressure and heat.
