Funeral costs are on the up…

Talking to our families about death and funerals is always emotional.  But as money expert Martyn Lewis says – this is just because they love us.

There are 2 reasons why we should all plan our funerals in advance:

  1. With funeral costs rising far in excess of the annual rate of inflation and almost 10 times faster than the cost of living (according to the Sun Life cost of dying report 2016) it is an unfortunate fact that, for many families, budgeting for a funeral by traditional means may not be sufficient to cover the cost.
  2. Planning a funeral in advance ensures that the deceased gets what they would have wanted, and takes the pressure of making decisions about the funeral away from the loved ones at such a difficult time. With a Safe Hands funeral plan, one phonecall to a 24/7 number when your loved one has died, and Safe Hands will do the rest.
