With funeral costs rising far in excess of the annual rate of inflation (and almost 10 times faster than the cost of living**) it is an unfortunate fact that, for many families, budgeting for a funeral by traditional means may no longer be sufficient to cover the cost.

According to the Sun Life Cost of Dying Report 2016, average funeral costs have almost doubled over the last 10 years, rising from just over £2,000 in 2006, to almost £4,000 in 2016. The report also predicts that by 2021, the cost of an average standard funeral will be in the region of £5,400.

Safe Hands Funeral Plans guarantee that no matter how long our plan-holders live, or however expensive a funeral is when they pass away, there will never be anything further for those left behind to pay towards the funeral director’s fees and services.
