A prepaid funeral plan is the smart and affordable way to organise and fix the cost of your funeral - or someone else's - at today's prices.   Here are three great reasons why you should consider planning and paying for your funeral in advance.

Worry saved

You will  spare loved ones from having to worry about the type of funeral you want,  because you've already planned it.


Money saved

Fix the funeral cost today and you will  protect loved ones from future price rises, potentially saving them thousands of pounds!

Fix the cost of your funeral today & beat rising funeral costs

The average cost of a basic funeral today is £4,184.  

Funeral costs in the UK have gone up 128% since prices were recorded in 2004.  That's far above inflation.   By way of comparison, the average full-time wage has only increased 42.6% in the same period.

If this trend in funeral costs continues, by 2025 the cost of a funeral could rise a further 20% to £5,044 .  What could you or your family do with the difference if you fixed the cost of your funeral today?
