The costs of funeral have significantly increased over the last decade and the average cost of funeral today is around £4,300 as per SunLife insurance. It means that if you don’t plan a funeral in advance, these costs will be borne by your family members apart from the last minute follow up to ensure that the funeral ceremony is carried out properly. While planning for funeral is not exactly a pleasant topic, it warrants your attention nevertheless. Considering that the costs of funeral will continue to rise, it makes sense to purchase a pre-paid funeral plan which allows the purchaser to freeze the funeral costs at today’s rate. This makes a prudent investment which reduces the stress from your family members and provides them the confidence that they are acting on your wishes when the time comes. Pre-paid funeral plans come in many varieties such as whole-life policy, burial insurance, revocable trust, and irrevocable trust.
However, you should not get confused with these terminologies and should only focus on your requirements for the funeral. Apart from the regular funeral activities, you may also have certain special requests such as religious rituals and you should ensure that the funeral service provider should be able to offer these at reasonable costs.
