Post Office Funeral Plan Review

Should you lock in the cost of your funeral at today's prices with a Post Office funeral plan instead of paying potentially a lot more money in years to come?
(Written & Contributed by an over 50 who wanted to share her experience)


With the average cost of a funeral now at £3,675 and rising, I decided to look into prepaid funeral plans. These plans let you pay the cost of your funeral today, and will provide the services you request when you die. Here is my Post Office Prepaid Funeral Plan review...

Limitations of Post Office funeral plans

  • They are selling plans on behalf of Dignity Pre Arrangement Ltd
  • Burial costs not guaranteed, just a contribution of £1,220
  • May get a better deal by using Dignity Funerals

For my Brother's funeral, I was never sure he would have been happy with the difficult decisions we made for him. (...) A funeral plan seemed an interesting alternative. I found FuneralGuide.co.uk refreshingly different compared to the pushy “hard sell” websites..

The free call that i got from FuneralGuide helped me to decide that I didn't want to leave my kids with that kind of burden.
