The death of a loved one is a time when the family members are in grief stricken and pray for the peace of the soul of the deceased. The arrangement of funeral becomes a financial burden for the family members at a time when they want to pray for the departed family member. Therefore, it becomes your responsibility to ensure that the family members are not burdened by the high funeral expenses along with the hassles of arranging a funeral ceremony. Over the last decade, the cost of funeral services has risen significantly, and the trend is likely to continue. In 2017, the average cost of funeral was estimated to be approximately £4000 and is expected to increase to £5000 by 2023. Prepaid funeral plans allow the purchaser to “lock-in” the costs of funeral at today’s rate and ensure that the family members do not have to worry about the financial burden when you are not around. However, selection of a prepaid funeral plan from a service provider is a matter of discretion of the purchaser and should be carried out after a thorough due diligence.

The funds received through sale of pre-paid plans are placed in an Independent Trust Fund, which is managed by a Fund Manager, who is regulated by the FCA and is overseen by Independent Trustees. So, you can be assured that the funeral arrangements will be carried out as agreed through the purchase of pre-paid plans.
