Funeral Plan Future investment
Pre-planning and pre-paying at today’s prices means you can choose the funeral you want and the director’s fee for it are paid, no matter how prices rise in the future. According to Sun Life Direct, the average cost of a funeral in the UK has risen for the 11th year in a row and now stands at £3,693. That puts the combined average cost of a burial and cremation funeral, almost 3% up on last year and a staggering 88% on a decade ago.
Perhaps even more importantly, your family are spared the emotional and financial burden of organizing your funeral, with all the decisions and problems this can entail, at a time when they least cope.
