If you’ve ever had to organise a funeral you’ll understand how complicated it can be. There are delicate matters to consider and difficult decisions to be made, often without any knowledge of what the deceased would have liked. Most people never discuss their funeral wishes, fearing it would be morbid, or “tempting fate” to do so; yet many have strong feelings about the service they’d like, whether they want to be buried or cremated, or where they’d like to be scattered.
And then there’s the cost. Few people realise how expensive a funeral is these days, and with funeral costs rising over 61% in the last 7 years, who knows how much they’ll cost in future. As we’re all living longer, and the squeeze on our finances tightens, it’s a very worrying thought.
This is why having a funeral plan is such a good idea. A funeral plan guarantees both that your funeral wishes will be respectfully carried out just as you wanted, and, the funeral director’s costs will be covered, whatever they might be, at the time of need.
By thoughtfully taking out a funeral plan now, you do your loved ones a great kindness, relieving them of a huge emotional and financial burden at what will be a very sad time.
