Compare Funeral Plans

With funeral costs rising far in excess of the annual rate of inflation, it is an unfortunate fact that, for many families, budgeting for a funeral by traditional means may no longer be sufficient to cover the cost. Planning and paying for your funeral plan in advance freezes the cost of all the funeral director’s fees and services at today’s funeral prices and protects your family against rising inflation and rising funeral expenses.

Prepare today for a peaceful tomorrow

According to the Sun Life Cost of Dying Report 2013, average funeral costs have risen from £1,230 in 1997 to £4000 today – an increase of over 225%. Conservative estimates suggest that by 2024 a funeral will cost, on average, between £7,000 and £8000.

With a pre-paid funeral plan, you can prepare in advance for life’s final event and protect your family from rising funeral expenses. By taking out a funeral plan now, you have the choice of paying for your funeral plan in full or at a fixed monthly price. This guarantees that however long you live, and however expensive a funeral is when you pass, there will always be sufficient funds to cover all the funeral directors fees and funeral services.
