SunLife’s 2018 Cost of Dying Report reveals that the cost of an average funeral is now £4,271. That’s an increase of 122% since 2004- well above inflation. At that rate, in another 10 years, the average cost of a funeral could be over £7,500**.

Mark Williams of Amba Legal Services says: “A pre-paid Funeral Plan offers an easy way for our clients to pay for the funeral director’s services included in their plan at current prices.”

He explained: “By planning ahead now, they can avoid the worry of setting funds aside later on – or leaving the financial burden of the funeral costs to their loved ones. It also means they can request the funeral they want, with no uncertainty for their family over their final wishes.”
