Funeral Plan Christmas Miracle!
PRICES UP: OK, so not really a miracle, but we have today (10th December 2015) had two price changes advised to us. One is the usual increase – in this case a whopping 12% increase, the biggest we have seen for a long time! (Yet more reason to get our independent advice ASAP!) This trend is continuing into 2016 and 2017 although there are an increasing number of “low cost” funeral plans which cut aspects of the funeral out to keep costs down. Some actually cut out the cost of the funeral, but still call themselves “funeral” plans. So contact us for expert advice, it won’t cost you a penny but could save all sorts of problems later on. Or just save you a few hundred pounds.
PRICES DOWN: The other is actually a reduction in fees of £160 – but with a sting in the tail! It follows a reduction in fees in Scotland, where (now) only one doctors fee has to be paid instead of two, as presently required by Law. The assumption is that the rest of the UK will do the same thing, which they may or may not. If they do, that is fine, if not the extra cost will need to be paid at the time.
