“I didn't want our daughter to have to worry - we are meant to look after her not the other way round"
I have paid for mine and my daughters, I didn't want our daughter to have to worry about these things, she's an only child, and I don't feel she should have to find the money for this, we are meant to look after her not the other way round.
Nicole O'Brien, Kent
“My cousin’s body arrived in the back of an estate car”
I'm doing a pre paid one, as I lost my cousin at the age of 46 unexpectedly.
He had no money and his daughter did her best for him, he turned up in the back of an estate car as his daughter was ashamed to ask family for help paying his funeral.
It was a shock to all the family seeing him turn up in the car. I said from that day I would not let my children go through what she did even though she did her Dad proud, so mine is all paid for, I think everyone should do it too.

The facts about death & funeral costs
While death continues to be a taboo subject, it’s important that families discuss funeral arrangements so that they are prepared when the time comes. Otherwise, bereaved parties could end up paying over the odds for a funeral the deceased might not even have wanted.
With costs expected to rise substantially in the coming years, it has never been a better time to put a funeral plan in place.
"What these findings highlight more than ever is that funerals are costly, and anything we can do now to prepare will help our relatives when the time does come."
