With your funeral paid for, you can get on with enjoying life.
Are you worried about funeral costs for yourself or a loved one? Do you wonder how your family will cover the costs?
Think about when the unthinkable happens. There can be a lot of unforeseen costs following the death of a loved one. The funeral arrangements themselves – coffin, flowers, headstone, cars, undertaker fees – and any probate issues that need to be dealt with. The average funeral now costs £7,622 – a 7.1% increase on the cost a year ago.* How would you cope if you were faced with such a large bill?
When you have got more important things to think about, don’t let money worries occupy any of your time.

There are many reasons for taking out a funeral plan, but the main ones are to ensure that your wishes are known and followed, your loved ones do not have to shoulder the burden of the costs of a funeral and with the costs of funerals on the rise year after year, taking out a pre-paid funeral plan, freezes the costs now, protecting your loved ones from escalating costs.
