What is a funeral plan?
A pre-paid funeral plan is so much more than simply freezing the cost of your funeral at today’s prices.
Yes, according to Sun Life’s “Cost of Dying Reports”, funerals are still doubling in price every 12-14 years, well in excess of the increased cost of living.
But, funeral plans also offer the perfect way to dictate exactly what you want at your funeral but also to understand and plan for your loved ones who will be attending.
Beat the rising costs of funerals
It’s staggering how expensive funerals are today, with them more than likely to become even more expensive in years to come.
With many people underestimating how expensive funerals can be, it usually hits the family of the deceased the hardest.
In 2018, the average cost of a basic funeral was nearly £4,000, doubling in just over a decade. Locking in the price today would mitigate against the rise.

Frequently asked questions
Is a pre-planned funeral plan right for me?
It depends. A pre-paid funeral plan is ideal if you want to save money on the cost of your funeral. A funeral plan will allow you to save money on the cost of your funeral as you pay for everything now, rather than years later. This saves you money because funeral prices are growing at a rate higher than that of inflation.
Additionally, it allows you to convey to your loved ones what you would like to be included in your funeral service. It might be that they are unaware of what you would want, or even have different views as to what you would want. A funeral plan ensures there are no arguments between your nearest and dearest.
Can I personalise my funeral plan?
Yes, all funeral plans can be tailored to suit individual preferences. The prepaid funeral plans can also be altered at any time (additional cost may be incurred depending on nature and extent of alterations).
