Pre-planning and Pre-paying
Pre-planning gives you the peace of mind of knowing that the arrangements you particularly want, will be conducted sensibly, in dignified respect to your wishes.
Pre-paying now will save you, your family or your estate a great deal of money. Bought now at today's prices, every detail is guaranteed no matter when it is needed or how much the costs of a funeral have risen in the meantime.
Why Plan Now?
Sharing the intimate details of your preferred funeral service 5, 10 or 15 years ahead of its time can be quite a difficult concept to consider. If you write it down, who will you entrust the paper to? If you tell your partner, sons or daughters, how will they remember and plan your every wish in their time of sadness? Only you can advise sensibly on such individual requirements Burial or Cremation? Church? Hymns? Music? Cars? Memorialisation? Or perhaps you have an environmental requirement such as woodland burial for instance?
Bereaved relatives have grief and anger to contend with. Adding the administrative burden of arranging the funeral to their confused and emotional state may lead to mistakes being made and unnecessary costs being incurred. Two cars are ordered when it should have been three; or a service at the church might be overlooked altogether.
Planning and paying for your funeral in advance saves your family the anguish and grief of doing anything other than remembering you.
Why Pay Now?
The cost of funerals has historically increased above the normal levels of inflation and this is a theme that is predicted to continue. A funeral costing just £850 ten years ago, would cost nearer £2,000 now.
It is impossible to say what that cost might be in five or ten more years time.
What is certain is, with a pre-pay Funeral Plan, bought now at today's prices or paid for in convenient monthly instalments, the quality of the service provided in respect of your planned wishes will not cost your family one penny more - whenever it is ultimately needed.
