A while ago there was a story regarding the price of funerals being reduced.
I have seen none of this to date. The cost of a funeral is diabolical, profitis tremendous. I know because I used to be an undertaker many years ago in Sunderland.
Most undertakers have a funeral plan, which is a rip off. I know one person who paid £3,000 but look at the interest the undertaker makes. If he invests this he will make a tidy sum.
Keep your money in the bank until needed. The longer you live the richer the undertaker becomes out of your money. Please be careful what you do.
