Funeral costs are rising every year. While the average cost of a funeral in 2004 was £1,920, by 2014 it had risen to £3,609*. That’s an increase of 88% – well above inflation. So in 2024, the average cost of a funeral could be over £6,800. With funeral costs rising every year*, a Funeral Plan offers an easy way to cater for your funeral director’s services fixed at current prices. You could potentially save your family or partner thousands of pounds in funeral expenses if the worst should happen.
