As we get older many of us wish to get our affairs in order.
Writing a will and a set of advance decision documents (used to be called living wills) is a good start. Some people take this one step further and want to plan their funeral and pay for it in advance. Most do this to secure the send off they want and to make sure they do not leave a burden or worry for their family. Money in funeral related saving plans are not counted as part of an estate, i.e. they are tax and means-test exempt.
Our fully inclusive fees compare very favourably with other provision. A single burial costs £970 (2016 prices) and includes the maintenance fund contribution, grave preparation and administration fee, and the provision of a tree. We do not penalise anyone from outside our area with multiple fees as other cemeteries do. We have one price for everyone.
