There are three main reasons why people consider buying a funeral in advance or making funeral arrangements for themselves and paying for them now:

  • To fix the cost or inflation-proof the price of the funeral
  • To remove the burden of funeral arrangements from relatives
  • To make sure that the 'type and style' of a funeral that an individual may want is carried out to the letter

These requests may include a green, eco or environmentally friendly funeral using a cardboard coffin, a bamboo coffin or wicker coffin; where the service should be held; perhaps a woodland burial or where, in the case of cremation, the cremated remains or ashes should be scattered.

There is no ‘right plan' – it all depends on what you want and how much you can or want to spend.
