The Costs Of Dying

Sunlife research

The costs associated with dying in the UK are rising all the time, with the average spend now a staggering £9,263*. Thats a lot of money for someone to have to pay for your funeral, plus professional fees and send-off costs. Even with the most basic of events, your family could be spending more than £4,000 in one go and may simply can’t afford it any longer. More than a quarter of people are having to go into debt to provide a funeral for their loved ones, and 25% of these people are looking to loans and credit card to foot the bill. Thats where our amazing partners at Four Seasons come in. They will be able to look at your individual circumstances and make recommendations from a huge range of options. From pre-paid funeral plans, to trusts and wills, they have it all covered.
