Based in the quiet rural Hertfordshire village of Meldreth, Pellatt Insurance Services are committed to providing a friendly, local service to clients in Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire.

We achieve results by learning as much as possible about our clients and their current situation and existing arrangements. We want to know because we are interested and because when armed with that information, the more accurate and pertinent our advice will be.

Our attitude and approach has enabled us to maximise the settlement of the most complex matters whilst ensuring minimum disruption to our clients. We are more than happy to prepare a report on your current insurance arrangements, detailing strengths and weaknesses, and to spend some time with you discussing our findings.

The Insitute of Civil Funerals annouced the following:


Following successful negotiations with Pellatt Insurance Brokers, all members of the Institute of Civil Funerals are now automatically covered by a group Public Liability Insurance scheme. Celebrants will be insured for up to £1m.

Chairman Peter McNulty said: "It has taken us a long while to broker a suitable deal. Increasing numbers of funeral directors are asking for assurance that celebrants have adequate cover, especially important when visiting families. In the past there has been an assumption that the funeral director's policy would cover a celebrant at work but as we are all self-employed and in effect sub-contracted that cannot be the case."

Peter went on to say that all IoCF members would have proof of paid up membership and the policy would be held at the IoCF HQ. Acknowledging that other celebrant organisations had insurance cover, Peter urged funeral directors to check that any celebrants used had appropriate cover. "There are an increasing number of celebrants coming into the field who lack any proper training or are one-man-bands with no back-up. Ensuring adequate insurance is but one means for funeral directors to ensure that they are obtaining the best possible service", he said.

The IoCF will be represented at the National Funeral Exhibition in June and welcome callers to their stand and will willingly answer any questions from visiting funeral directors.
