Pauper Funerals

Paupers Funerals

Paupers Funerals are used for people as young as 17 and as old as 103 where they have no family to organise and pay for their funeral.  According the The Star, paupers funerals are costing the Council Tax payers of Sheffield alone a massive £50,000 a year – and that we assume is after recovering much of the cost from the assets of the deceased.

Quite apart from the fact that it’s really sad for people to end up in this situation, there is no chance of their wishes being met in these circumstances, whereas with a prepaid funeral plan you can at least make your own choices in advance.
