Average funeral costs have risen from £1,230 in 1997 to over £4000 today - an increase of over 225%. If funeral costs continue to rise at the same rate we have seen over the past decade the average funeral will cost almost £5,000, in five years’ time.
In an ideal world, the price of a funeral would be a secondary consideration for the bereaved. However current economic pressures and with prices widely differing throughout the funeral industry more and more people are now coming to realise that planning and paying for their funeral in advance is a money saving and inflation beating way to fund a funeral. Not only does it relieve the worry and financial burden associated with funeral arrangements it also relinquishes the dilemma your loved ones may face trying to decide what kind of funeral they think you want. Indeed by choosing a prepaid funeral plan that allows YOU to specify funeral arrangements that follow your wishes will help take the burden off your loved ones and give you peace of mind that you have made a wise investment in protecting yourself and your family from rising funeral costs. In short the payments made at todays prices have the effects of freezing a funeral directors charges for years ahead. This is why funeral plans are increasingly becoming an important part of later life financial planning, for the 50+ age group.
Ensuring the planning and costs involved in arranging a funeral are covered in advance is one of the most thoughtful legacies we could ever wish to leave to our loved ones.
