Taking out a Bennetts Pre-Paid Funeral Plan.
Planning a funeral with a Bennetts pre-paid funeral plan makes financial sense and means your funeral will be exactly as you would wish it.
It’s natural, as we get older, to think about what we want to leave our loved ones and how to provide the money to meet funeral expenses. It’s not morbid. It’s to do with independence, responsibility and wanting to leave everything in order for our relatives and friends. In our experience to have a Bennetts Pre Paid Funeral Plan can alleviate family and friends from guessing and sometimes not being sure of what to do at a time when they may be dealing with grief as well as legal issues surrounding the bereavement.
Choosing a funeral plan, and talking about funeral costs, is something that we tend to find difficult and even if we do try to raise the subject, more often than not those close to us don’t want to discuss it.
However, arranging a pre-paid funeral plan makes sense as the cost of funeral services continues to rise, and it’s natural to want to make provision for your funeral costs. Due mainly to the increase in the fees charged by cemeteries and crematoria, doctors and clergy, plus the cost of fuel, funeral costs are increasing on average by around 10% per annum. The average cost of a basic Essex funeral has risen for the 11th year in a row and now stands at approximately £3693.00 and increase of more than 90% since 2004, according to the Sun Life Cost of Dying Report 2015.
Around a million people in the UK have purchased a pre-paid funeral plan to detail funeral arrangements and provide for their funeral costs. Pre Paid Funeral Plans have become more popular in recent years with over 136,000 purchased last year alone.
