Funeral costs are on the rise! Funeral costs continue to rise higher than annual UK inflation. You might be surprised to hear that, while the average cost of a funeral in 2004 was £1,920, in 2019 the average cost of a funeral was £4,417*. At this rate, the average cost of a funeral could be over £10,000 in 2030.
But there is more to funerals than just their cost. Whilst arranging a funeral plan there are other unseen costs you need to ensure you prepare for. Having a funeral plan is something your loved ones will be grateful you took the me to organize.
A funeral plan takes the stress and worry of arranging a funeral for your loved ones away from your family. Planning your funeral in advance also removes any doubt and disagreements between the family as to what you actually wanted.

DON’T WANT A FUNERAL?
We can also look at options where you don’t require a funeral for your loved ones to attend. This is called a direct cremation and works out as a cheaper alternative.
OVER 50s PLAN
Over-50’s life insurance is designed with the over 50’s in mind. It allows you to make a monthly payment for as much or as little as you can afford, to leave something for your family. When you pass away, it pays out a lump sum.
The money could be used towards your funeral costs, to pay off any existing debts or simply as a gift to leave your loved ones but remember, unlike a funeral plan, this may not cover the full cost of a funeral.
