We have surely all seen the plethora of adverts from funeral insurance companies attempting to scare us into submission with figures of £8,000 for a funeral!
The cost of a funeral is no small sum, on average £3,400 but as with all things this depends upon the choices made and this sum can go up or down. However, the benefit of all the media communications concerning funeral costs is that it increases our awareness about matters that we’d rather not discuss. What once was taboo is becoming ever more approachable and that can only be a good thing.
Funeral costs increase annually; therein lies the main benefit of purchasing a pre-paid funeral plan. We work with Golden Charter to provide funeral plans for our clients based on their individual needs. Your plan can be as simple or involved as you choose. These plans are based on current prices for the agreed arrangements, the money is then placed in trust until it is needed. Your money is completely secure and is ring-fenced for the sole use of the applicant’s funeral arrangements.
Choosing a pre-paid funeral plan is not only financially astute, it’s incredibly thoughtful. As funeral directors we have seen the anguish families face when, added to the distress of their loss, they are unsure that they are making the ‘right’ choices for their loved one’s funeral. Pre-paid plans negate this uncertainty as all the decisions have been made. To discuss your particular requirements without obligation contact us.
