What makes Hatfield Daniels LLP different?

Hatfield Daniels LLP work in conjunction with your local funeral director, so you can compare the major Funeral Planning companies at the same time to find the right plan for you.

Why would I buy a Funeral Plan?

Back in 2004, an average funeral cost around £1920. However, recent research shows the average cost of a funeral in the UK is now £3,609 – an increase of 88% in ten years, well above the general rate of inflation

If this trend continues, the average cost of a funeral in 2024 will be over £6,800.

Paying in advance for your funeral is a sensible decision that will save you money reduce – stress benefitting your family and estate.

How you choose the best Funeral Plan?

We understand that choosing the right funeral plan is a big decision. Price is extremely important which is why we compare leading plans and their prices. However, price is not the only consideration; we also want to ensure you chose the highest standards of professional conduct so we only use plans that are Funeral Planning Authority registered.

Funeral Plans consist of two key elements….

  1. The funeral director’s costs; these include all the funeral director’s professional advice, the coffin and the hearse; limousines are dependent on the level of plan. All plans guarantee and freeze these costs at today’s prices.
  2. Third party costs: – These include cremation or burial fees, minister’s and doctor’s charges. Plans will either guarantee to fully cover the third party costs with nothing more for your family to pay, or they will include an allowance towards.
  3. Payment Options
  4. If you have the money right now, paying it all off in a single payment gives you the reassurance that your funeral plan is paid for so you can get on with your life. This option is available to UK residents.
  5. If you don’t want to pay in one lump sum, you can choose to spread the cost between 12 to 120 months (dependant on individual providers) with many funeral payment options available. Some providers may require a deposit.
  6. If you are looking for lower fixed monthly payments, you can pay for your funeral by taking out a life insurance policy. This option is available to UK residents aged 50 to 80. Unlike many insurance policies, you won’t need to have a medical or answer any health questions – your acceptance is guaranteed.

Hatfield Daniels LLP joins the movement for fair funerals.

How would you feel if you couldn’t afford a decent send off for someone you love? This is a reality for one in seven of us. Funeral costs have soared 88% in the last ten years. At the same time Government grants for people struggling have dwindled. They now fall way short of the overall cost of a funeral. The problem is set to get worse.

This is why at Hatfield Daniels LLP we are championing and promoting funeral plans to all clients as an ethical, affordable solution to this problem.

Why funeral poverty?

The Down to Earth project works with people in funeral poverty, helping them arrange a meaningful affordable funeral. They witness the trauma, distress and shame people feel at not being able to give someone a send-off. And factors like an aging population, funeral inflation and a projected rise in death rates are creating a perfect storm where funeral poverty is set to increase.

So in 2014 they launched the Fair Funerals Campaign.

Buying a funeral can be expensive and confusing. The cost of dying has risen seven times faster than the cost of living. When people are bereaved, they don’t make savvy consumers and it’s difficult to find clear, comparable information about what things really cost. There are also huge differences in what funeral directors charge.

Without knowing how prices compare and what their options are, people end up buying funerals they can’t afford and getting into unmanageable debt.

The Fair Funerals pledge asks funeral directors to provide clear, comparable prices so people know what they’re buying. It also asks them to make their most affordable funeral visible to the public.

How does Hatfield Daniels LLP get involved?

By asking funeral directors we already work alongside to sign, we feel we can make a real difference to people who are struggling with the cost of a funeral. Local funeral directors will always be interested in what people and businesses in their communities think – resulting in a position to influence the way they respond to funeral poverty.
