Why it helps to plan ahead

Bereavement & funerals

Most people don’t like to think about their own mortality but there are many benefits to planning ahead for a funeral, for example avoiding rising funeral costs. Consistently over the last 11 years rising funeral costs have outstripped both the rate of inflation and the cost of living and it’s a trend that is expected to continue. So, in the face of rising funeral costs many people make provisions for a funeral in advance.

Within this section you will find some useful guides, tools, case studies and useful links all designed to helping you plan ahead.
