Planning a funeral is understandably one of the most difficult aspects of probate – but you can remove this burden from your loved ones entirely by choosing to pre-plan your final goodbye.
Making provisions for your funeral in advance of your death will greatly reduce the pressure placed on those closest to you to arrange the perfect send-off. From choosing a location for the funeral to specifying whether you want to be buried or cremated, taking the time to discuss your requirements will give you peace of mind that everything will be taken care of.
You can pre-pay for many of the things you need, too, which will mean that your family will not need to worry about finding the cash when you eventually pass away.
In many cases, pre-paid funeral plans work out cheaper than paying upon death, as you are able to fix the cost of proceedings at today’s prices. And with the average cost of a funeral rising over 58% in the last seven years (according to Dignity), thinking ahead could potentially save your family thousands of pounds.
Many of our partners guarantee to accept you regardless of your age, too.
