In 20 years' time
the average cost of a funeral could be over...
Costs of a basic funeral has risen by 88% in the last 10 years****
Growing number of families will struggle with funeral bills**
No one likes to think or talk about a time in which they are no longer around, but the subject of later life planning (specifically funeral arrangements) really shouldn't be seen or treated as a taboo. The consequences of not having sensible provisions or plans in place for your family and loved ones can potentially be catastrophic (in terms of getting into debt due to a sudden bereavement).
However, with the help of a recent push by the media (including the BBC ***) twinned with nationally publicised independent studies** into the sharply rising costs of funeral arrangements, the lack of adequate government support and the absolute need for individuals to really consider the options that are available to them; the subject of funeral planning will hopefully become less of a delicate subject.
