Dying could cost you – or those who survive you – a whopping £3,551. That’s the average funeral cost in the UK, according to research conducted by Royal London and published recently in Moneywise magazine.
With the financial burden associated with bereavement comes anxiety. Many people, out of love and respect for the deceased, are reluctant to opt for low price funerals. Consequently, a large proportion of these people get themselves into debt when paying their last respects to their loved ones. On average, people with funeral debt owe £1,305 each to credit cards, money lenders, family and friends.
Which, of course, only makes the death all the harder to cope with.
