Arranging and paying for your funeral in advance relieves your family financial burden whilst fixing many of the costs at today's prices. Plans allow you to outline any wishes or requests you may have for your funeral.
With an Independent Way Funeral Plan we will make sure that your loved ones are spared much of the burden of organising a funeral. You’ll have specified every detail in advance and taken care of all the costs within our control. A funeral plan gives you peace of mind. When the time comes, you can rely on us to carry out your wishes to the letter.
Funeral costs are going up every year. The average cost of a funeral in 2004 was £1,920; today it’s £3,897. That’s an increase of 103% – more than double – and well above inflation. At this rate, in another ten years the average cost of a funeral could be more than £7,000.
Nobody wants their family to face money worries in the future. With a funeral plan in place you fix the cost of the services in your plan at today’s prices. So no matter how much the cost of these services rise in the future, your family will have nothing more to pay – guaranteed.
