Funeral Planning is one topic which many people want to avoid or do not want to talk about. Nevertheless, it is important that you should consider funeral planning by purchasing prepaid funeral plans for several reasons. One of them is that it provides you with the peace of mind that there will be no hassles or discomfort to your family for arranging the funeral. The service provider will arrange for the funeral as agreed by you at the time of purchase of the prepaid plan. The second reason is that prepaid funeral plans offer the advantage of locking the costs of funeral conducted at a future date at today’s rate while also providing the assurance that the selected activities will be carried out by the service providers. According to a study by SunLife Cost of Dying Report 2018, average cost of a basic funeral across the UK is £4,271 which is expected to rise to £5,123 in 2023. This predicts an alarming rise in the cost of funeral which you should consider so as to avoid putting the financial burden of your funeral on your family members.

The third reason is that you can choose to pay for your funeral in flexible instalment payments so that it does not impact your regular budget. Considering all these aspects, funeral planning becomes easier for people. However, you should also explore the service provider so that they can meet their obligations when the time comes.
