Funerals can be surprisingly expensive. Not only will your family have lost a loved one in yourself, but in doing so they will have spent a lot of money making sure that you go in a dignified manner. You can make the whole affair cheaper for both you and your family with pre paid funeral plans. Here are just a few of the most frequently asked questions about pre paid funeral plans.
Why is it easier for my family?
This is for a few reasons. Firstly, by paying in advance for as many aspects of the funeral as possible, you can remove the financial burden of a funeral from your family. Furthermore, they won’t need to deal with many of the organisational aspects of your funeral, letting them focus on grieving your loss rather than having to rush around organising your goodbyes.
How much control will I have?
In addition to saving your family time and money, a pre paid funeral plan will also help you to get a better level of control over how you say farewell. You’d need to provide some idea of what you want in order to give us a better idea of costs, so you can effectively plan your own funeral. Whether you’d prefer a cremation service or a more traditional burial, or you just want a specific piece of music playing, just let us know and we’ll sort everything out for you.
Could there be added costs?
Depending on how much you are able to pay in advance, your family may find themselves paying a little bit towards the funeral, but this is not nearly as much as the cost of an entire funeral. For example, you may find yourself having to pay third party fees to those outside the funeral director, but these pale in comparison to the cost of a complete funeral. Although there may be added costs, these are out of our control and are fairly small.
