What does an average funeral in Milton Keynes cost?
When a loved one dies it’s important to consider how the funeral will be paid for, especially as the average price of a funeral in Milton Keynes is £3500-£4500. Whilst some people will have set money aside to pay for their own funeral, others won’t have made any specific provisions. In this instance, it is vital to consider what you can afford before making any arrangements. At Dillamore we aim to provide full clarity with regard to funeral costs, and will work with you to ensure we can fulfil your wishes whilst respecting your budget.
Should I get a prepaid funeral plan?
Taking the time to plan ahead for your funeral ensures that your family aren’t left with the difficulty of planning and paying for your funeral in the event of your passing. Prepaid funeral plans provide the opportunity to set everything in place – as well as documenting your funeral wishes, you will be able to pay for the majority of your funeral at today’s prices. Here at Dillamore we provide the Independent Way Plan from Golden Charter. This plan allows for full flexibility so that you can have the funeral of your choice.
