You could also donate your body to medical science then they dispose of the body all free 👍when your brown bread who cares 😂

OOH - hadn't thought of that and it seems a fantastic idea that medical students for example see first hand what issues have happened over the years to lungs and other organs etc. Damn good shout there. :good:

Like many others my wife and I have paid for funeral plans with the Co-op.
Its a sensible idea, as costs are rising all the time.
I don't want our children to have the financial burden of the funeral cots, if they want to have a cup of tea and cake afterward, thats up to them.🙂

Choosing an organisation like the Co-op give me some confidence.
There are many around offering similar services, but not all have the Co-op's excellent reputation.
I have heard stories of supplements having to be paid and other similar problems when the time comes to settle up.

as long as certain guidelines are followed (mainly to avoid potential public health risks) there is no law what-so-ever against being buried in your own garden,

It’ll totally devalue the land or house

The Competitions and Markets Authority are investigating funeral prices. I wouldn’t be surprised if prices stabilise or fall going forward. I don’t know why people just don’t put a lump sum in an ISA rather than paying in advance.
