Funerals can be expensive, costing several thousand pounds, and many people worry that when they die, they won't leave enough money for their funeral. With a funeral plan, you arrange and pay for it in advance. You can arrange a funeral plan for your own funeral or for someone else.
The average cost of a funeral is around £2800, and by 2015 the cost is expected to exceed £4000. Cost varies by region, with London ones now approaching £3000.
If you have a particular funeral in mind, or wish to protect your loved ones from unnecessary stress and organisation, you may want to buy a funeral plan.
