The Funeral Directors Pledge
We are very happy to be part of the Funeral Directors Fair Funeral Pledge
Buying a funeral can be expensive and confusing. When we're bereaved, we don't make savvy consumers. Not only have funerals got more expensive, funeral directors are often not open and upfront about what things actually cost. This lack of clear, comparable information can make a stressful, disorientating time worse.
Quaker Social Action (QSA) has launched the Fair Funeral Pledge, to bring some much needed transparency and scrutiny to the experience of buying a funeral. The Pledge calls on funeral directors to provide clear, comparable prices and to offer a simple option if you're worried about money.
Over the past ten years the cost of a basic funeral has risen by 80% from an average of £1,920 to £3,551. At the same time, the state grant for people claiming benefits has dwindled and now only covers around 35% of the funeral bill.
