Funeral Plans

Are you concerned about the rising costs of funerals or worried about leaving your family to find the resources to pay
for your funeral?

If so, you may wish to consider a Funeral Plan: -

• Organise the details of your funeral to your specifications
• Avoid any additional expenses by paying in advance
• Relieve your family from the worry or financial uncertainty about how much it will cost

None of us like to think about our own demise and it can be a difficult decision to start planning for your funeral now.  However, providing for its cost in advance allows you to live life to the full without the worry of what will happen in the future.

Many people believe that arranging a prepaid funeral plan is the best option in order to guarantee that your personal wishes will be met and the funeral expenses will be paid for. It will cover costs at today’s prices – and with funeral expenses increasing by 88% between 2004 and 2014, from an average of £1,920* well above the level of inflation, you can protect yourself and your family against any future increases.

We understand that it can be difficult to start a conversation with a relative or friend about your specific funeral wishes and the option of writing things down in the hope that they will be found in time or by the right person, is sometimes a risk.  Arranging a prepaid funeral plan will lift the emotional barriers and allow you to specify what you want without any awkward questions or denial from your nearest and dearest to listen to you!

If you are worried about finding a sum of money up front to pay for the funeral plan do not worry, as regular payment options are also available.
