Funeral costs are going up every year. The average cost of a funeral in 2004 was £1,920. In 2018 the cost was £4,271, an increase of just over 122%. At this rate the cost of a funeral in ten years could exceed £7,000.
With a funeral plan you can fix the cost of our services at this year's prices. So no matter how costs change in the future, your family will have nothing more to pay for the services in your plan - guaranteed.
