I am totally independent, which means that as there are numerous funeral plan companies on the market, I can recommend the best plan for you, rather than being tied to offer you just one company. I can do the research and from the details you give me, I can inform you of which company can offer you the best price, every company offers different options and I can break these down for you.
Taking out a funeral plan is one of the most selfless acts you can do. It takes away the financial and emotional stress from your loved ones at a very upsetting time. Your family is reassured that they are carrying out your specific wishes – very comforting all round.
A funeral plan offers peace of mind. With the cost of funerals rising all the time, you can be assured that you have paid for your funeral in advance for the best price, ensuring that the funeral director’s fees and services are frozen at today’s funeral costs. You can also specify any particular requirements you may have, meaning your loved ones do not have to make the decisions for you.
According to the Sun Life Cost of Dying Report 2013, average funeral costs have risen from £1,230 in 1997 to £4,000 today – an increase of 225%. Conservative estimates suggest that by 2024 a funeral will cost, on average between £7,000 and £8,000. Taking out a funeral plan means that however expensive a funeral is when you pass away, there will always be sufficient funds to cover the funeral director’s fees and services.
