There are 3 things in life that are guaranteed; being born, paying taxes anddying!
How many of us give much thought to any of those? We may celebrate the birth of a baby, grumble at the amount of tax we have to pay – but the dying bit, do we think about it? Maybe in so far as writing a will.
Who is going to pay for your funeral? And that’s something that I have been thinking about – maudlin maybe, but ever practical that is me!
So I thought I would look into funeral planning and a prepayment plan. During my research I have found out some fascinating stuff;
- You can plan what you want, poems, eulogies, music, cars etc
- You can hire a casket - seriously! you can hire a posh coffin to be viewed in and then swap to the more basic cheaper version for the burial / cremation! and why not, after all we hire wedding frocks
- You can pay bi - annually, annually, monthly, quarterly - basically however suits you!
So just like you plan the arrival of your baby, your wedding day or a family holiday you canplan your funeral exactly how you want it ensuring your funeral is a unique reflection of your life and your wishes are fulfilled.For someone as anal as me that is a blessing – now pass the cheque book please
