In order to ease the burden on their family many people nowadays are planning ahead and making some arrangements for their own funeral. At what is a very difficult time for loved ones it can be a great comfort to them to know that they are following your wishes.
As well as easing the emotional burden, it can remove many of the worries about money, knowing that much or all of the costs have already been taken care of. With funeral costs having increased considerably over the last ten years it might be that savings or insurance set aside for this might not be enough to pay for things. However, with a plan that guarantees the services of a funeral director (and protected by your money being held in trust) you can be confident that you are not leaving your spouse or family with a big bill to pay.
This sensitive subject needs careful consideration and your Will writer can provide more personal information as you require.
