Fix rising funeral costs with your Funeral Home for Epping

Pre paid funeral planning with Bennett’s Your Funeral Home for Epping

The fact is that funeral costs are rising
Just 14 years ago a basic funeral would have cost approximately £1,920, the same service today would cost you around £4,078 thats a big increase of 112%.

But why is this so?
Well, this amount includes the total cost of the funeral director’s fees, cremation or burial fees, and the minister or celebrant’s fees and the Funeral director’s fees, the collection of the deceased the coffin, hearse and care of the deceased etc. But external factors within these costs have risen by 3.3% alone in the last year such as the increase in cost of land for burial sites, higher wages for crematorium staff and grave diggers, maintenance of crematoriums as well as the rise in fuel prices and cuts to local authority budgets leading to a rise in crematorium costs.

So what is the answer?
The practical and easy way to beat these rising funeral costs is to invest in a pre-paid funeral plan.

The Funeral Planning Authority – regulator for the pre-paid funeral plan industry – reported that in 2017, the number of funeral plans sold was 207,700, an increase of 54% in the past 5 years.

Pre paid funeral plans are becoming evermore popular because, with a pre paid funeral plan you are locking in the cost of the funeral director’s services included in the plan at todays prices. Once you have paid in full, no matter how much prices rise in the future, you will have nothing more to pay for these services.

Choose from standard or tailored pre paid funeral plans and you can be as thorough as you like, from flowers and funeral vehicles to music and dress code, and you will still receive all the services you would require, if you choose a cheap pre-paid funeral plan.
