Funeral financing loans

Funeral loans are designed specifically for the needs of your business. Our team of specialists understand your sector and the challenges you encounter.

Funeral finance designed to help your business succeed

We offer bespoke funeral finance for both independent funeral directors as well as corporate businesses.

As a funeral director you may need support to start up or buy into a business, to refurbish an existing firm, or purchase new funeral or mortuary equipment. You may need finance for the purchase of limousines and hearses, or simply to fund your tax bill.

 allows your clients to apply for funds within your premises or at a time that suits them at home, providing your business with an enhanced service whilst assisting with your business cash flow.
