Every year funeral costs rise more and more and the idea of pre-paying for a funeral may not have even occurred to you, but when the time comes, having a funeral plan in place to guarantee that the cost of the funeral arrangements are covered, can save your loved ones both expense and unnecessary stress at a difficult time. Here are the facts:
- In 2004 the cost of an average funeral was £1920.
- The cost of an average funeral in the UK today is £3284.
- If this trend continues the estimated cost of an average funeral in 2020 will be over £5600.
Consideration for others is the most common reason for taking out a funeral plan and peace of mind is the most common benefit. Often there is a choice of plans to suit your own personal preferences and budget.
