Dealing With The Cost of Funerals

This is perhaps in no small part due to the fact that the cost of funerals has also risen, and if unaccounted for, these costs can leave your loved ones out of pocket and struggling after you're gone.

Funerals in the UK arranged in the “usual” way currently cost an average of £3,675, but this figure is expected to rise rapidly in coming years. In fact, by 2031, the average cost is expected to top the £10,000 mark. Even if you have been ill or your loved ones have had some time to think about and plan your funeral, unexpected costs can still arise.

Of course, the easiest way to alleviate fears about how to pay for a funeral is to buy a prepaid plan.

Putting in place a burial or cremation plan enables you to make a one-off purchase/or a low monthly payment, and secure a plan that gives you control over your wishes whilst alleviating your loved ones of any financial burden.

This can provide you with peace of mind, and protect your family from incurring unanticipated bills.

Many families who are faced with the cost of a funeral they simply cannot afford may be forced to choose other options such as Direct Disposal, which can be upsetting for all involved if this was not your intention.

Not to mention that after the passing of a loved one, there are many other things to consider beyond burial plans, such as the will, what to do with property and inheritance, how to divide assets, closing accounts, notifying banks and creditors, and so much more.

On top of all of this, the cost and time associated with planning a funeral should not weigh heavy on the shoulders of your loved ones.

Finances shouldn’t dictate your final farewell - take action and ensure your affairs are in order.

Your funeral should be the ultimate celebration of your life, so why leave any aspect of it to chance?

Leaving funeral planning to loved ones can not only mean that your wishes are not adhered to, but it can also cause them a great deal of undue stress and financial worry at an already upsetting time. So what can be done about it?

Make It Your Choice

When my uncle passed away suddenly at only 52 years of age, I found myself faced with the challenge of having to plan his funeral.

Are there any alternatives to pre pay funeral plans?

Traditional Savings

It may be possible to save for a funeral, and use the lump sum, or, if an ISA can be utilised for this purpose it may also be worth it. Saving a set amount every month could then be used by family members to pay for the funeral.

Downside: With a cash ISA, you won't be able to get the money out until your executors have probate.​

Life Insurance may be an option?

If you are under 50 years old, life insurance cover may be a better option. Click below to read the benefits available to you:

Home Burial

Although not traditional, home burials can be an option, if your home meets certain criteria, including informing your local police, local authority and environmental health authority.

Downside: Don't forget that it will probably impact property resale value and desirability also.
