Protection from rising costs of funerals

Unfortunately, funeral costs in the UK are rising every year. The average funeral back in 2004 cost £1,920, but today it has risen to £3,897 (Sunlife’s cost of dying report 2016). That’s an increase of over 100%, which is well above inflation. Should this rate of increase continue then in just 10 years you could be paying more than £7000 for a funeral. Just putting money aside may not cover even the basic costs, and that is where a funeral plan comes in.
