Cost of Dying Survey by Sun Life published by Bennetts Funeral Directors of Brentwood and Billericay

The result of the fifth Sun Life Direct Cost of Dying Survey, published in September 2011, shows that the cost of an average funeral has now reached £3091.00 – an increase of 61% in seven years and that one in five people are struggling to pay funeral costs.

At Bennetts Funeral Directors we are pleased to report that the average cost of a funeral service from our dedicated team is £2500, more than £500 less than the national average, from well above average funeral directors.

As a result of this report, there was a considerable amount of news coverage in the press and on the BBC.  Funeral planning and Golden Charter in particular was referred to favourably in the ‘Money Matters’ column of the Express, and Golden Charter saw an increase of 37% in their website traffic.
