Funeral costs have risen from £1,230 in 1997 to over £4,000 in 2017 (figures taken from Sun Life's Cost of Dying report).
This is a worry to many people especially with savings today giving such low returns.
A funeral plan is designed to lock the cost of the funeral at the time of taking out the plan, to keep it the same for as long as you live, be that long or short.
As well as the cost of funerals, people do often choose funeral plans to ensure that their wishes are set out in advance and will be adhered to, whether cremation or burial. A bereavement is a stressful time for those left behind, but you can alleviate that by ensuring they do not need to wonder or even argue about what you might have wanted.
There are a range of different plans available to suit all budgets and requirements, with interest free options over 12 or 24 months, to make the funeral plans more affordable. All monies are held in a secure, invested trust fund so that even if Safe Hands were to cease trading for any reason, your money would still be there, safe and sound.
Working with Safe Hands, one of the UK's leading providers of pre-paid funeral plans, Mugford & Co Wills (Diss) Ltd provides funeral plans.
