The Rising Cost of Funerals

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.
