One of the first things that is taken from a deceased estate is funeral costs
Executors should carry out the deceased funeral wishes although they are not obliged to do so.
It is worth considering a pre paid funeral plan – There are several reasons for having a pre paid funeral plan:
You are paying for your funeral at today’s price – whether the funeral is in ten or twenty year’s time you would not have to pay any extra.
For example, if you paid £2500 today for a funeral that same funeral in ten years time may be £8500 – a difference of £6000 – would you like that £6000 to go to the funeral director or to your family?
You decide in advance what kind of funeral you want, what music, flowers etc
You take the burden away from your family at a time when they are already emotionally upset.
It avoids unnecessary arguments among family.
