Pre-paid funerals have become a popular choice in the UK as people look to take steps to reduce the impact of continued price rises. Taking out a plan can provide comfort and reassurance, easing the financial burden as well as ensuring there is extra time to decide what options to choose for the funeral.
With pre-planning it is possible to select the type of funeral, including a burial, cremation or a unique option such as a green service. Decisions regarding the type of coffin or casket, hearse, and newspaper notices can also be made. All of these important details can be made early, saving time in the future and reducing the burden on planners.
With a pre-paid plan you can secure many fees including those for funeral directors, caring for the deceased, transportation, and the service. This offers the opportunity to beat price rises and dramatically cut the risk of being caught with surprise bills.
If you wish, you can also plan the memorial in advance, including selecting the design for a headstone, a plaque or an urn. This can save additional time and ensures that the right decisions are made to commemorate the deceased. It is good to have longer to consider the options, decide what you want to say on the memorial and make sure it is a fitting tribute.
