Over the years, it has become quite expensive to die. The culture of sending off friends and family has remained the same, but now, it has come to cost frightening amounts. So, how much does it cost to lay your loved one to rest in 2023?
Although the cost of funerals seems to have risen lately, it has actually decreased for the first time in the past 18 years. It has only gone down by less than 5 per cent, but a decrease is a decrease nonetheless. In 2023, the average cost for a funeral in the UK is 4,056 pounds. The price can go up or down depending on what type of service you choose. Direct Cremation Plans, which are becoming increasingly popular, can also be more affordable than traditional funeral services.
