Sorting out the arrangements while you're still around means you're sure to get the funeral you'd like and, more importantly, your loved ones are spared the additional distress of worrying about what you would have wanted and paying for it.
You’re never too young to pre-plan and pre-pay your funeral expenses.
Sharing the intimate details of your preferred funeral service 5, 10, 20 years or more ahead of its time can be quite a difficult concept to consider. If you write it down who will you entrust the paper to? If you tell your partner, sons or daughters, how will they remember and plan your every wish in their time of sadness? Only you can advise sensibly on such individual requirements – burial or cremation? Hymns? Music? Cars? Memorialisation? Or perhaps you have an environmental requirement such as woodland burial for instance?
Bereaved relatives often have grief and anger to contend with. Adding the administrative burden of arranging the funeral to their confused and emotional state may lead to mistakes being made and unnecessary costs being incurred. For example cremation is requested when in fact you wanted to be buried; or a service at church might be overlooked altogether. Small details like instructions for wedding rings can often cause the relatives great anguish and problems. If only they had known is often a feeling expressed. Planning and paying for your funeral in advance saves your family the anguish and grief of doing anything other than remembering you.
The cost of funerals has historically increased above the normal levels of inflation and this is a theme that is predicted to continue. A funeral costing just £1,000 ten years ago might cost nearer £4,000 now. It is impossible to say what that cost might be in five or ten more years time. What is certain is, with Golden Leaves Funeral Plan, bought now at today’s prices or paid for in convenient monthly instalments, the quality of the service provided by the Funeral Director in respect of your planned wishes will not cost your family one penny more – whenever it is ultimately needed
Please see below link for details of the three plans offered and their respective prices.
Funeral Directors fees AND disbursements for agreed cremation OR burial plan are guaranteed to be covered in full. # For burial plans all burials except out-of-district and un-purchased Council/private cemetery or un-purchased Natural Burial Ground (NBG) plans are guaranteed in full.
