Sparing your family the emotional and financial burden of organising your funeral.
For people who are young and healthy, putting together a funeral plan may sound like an unnecessary concept, but there are many advantages to sharing and recording your funeral preferences, regardless of your age.
Pre-planning your funeral means that you get to pay for the funeral you want at today's prices, regardless of any price increase by the time you die.
01. REDUCE STRESS FOR YOUR FAMILY
When someone close to us passes away, grief often makes even the simplest tasks difficult. Because funerals tend to be planned immediately following a death, this often means that family members must dive immediately into planning a large event and making significant financial decisions.
02. HELP PREVENT FAMILY CONFLICT
If you pass away unexpectedly and you haven’t outlined your funeral wishes, your family will be left to guess what you would have wanted. If two family members disagree, that can lead to a lot of unnecessary tension in the funeral planning process.
03. ENSURE YOUR WISHES ARE MET
Many people have ideas about what they would like done surrounding their death. Whether you feel that a burial is important for religious reasons or you’d prefer a lively celebration of your life over a sombre affair, planning your funeral in advance will help ensure that the things you find most important will happen.
04. SAVE MONEY
Many people don’t think to shop around when they’re grieving and rushing to plan a funeral, which can lead to thousands of pounds in unnecessary costs. If you plan ahead, you can take the time to compare funeral homes, which often vary in price by thousands of pounds for almost identical services.
6 Reasons to Pre Plan Your Funeral
05. PREPARE FINANCIALLY
Funerals are expensive, even for the savviest of shoppers with simple plans. A basic cremation with a small service will still generally cost thousands of pounds. By preparing for your funeral in advance, you’ll be able to determine exactly how much everything will cost and make a plan for how to pay for it.
06. ENCOURAGE CONVERSATION
While talking to your family about death may sound uncomfortable, many people find that it leads to meaningful conversations about what’s important to each of you. Frequently, people want to talk about the end of life, but feel awkward or don’t know how to bring it up themselves.
