Why a funeral plan is a clever financial investment

Funeral plans costs are rising every year. While the average cost of a funeral in 2005 was £1,965, by 2013 it was £3,456*. That’s an increase of 84% – well above inflation. So in 2029, the average cost of a funeral could be over £10,000. With funeral costs rising every year*, Bristol & West Legal Services Funeral Plans offers an easy way to pay for your funeral director’s services at a cost that’s fixed at current prices.
