Funeral arrangements shouldn't be the last thing on your mind:
- Pre-planning gives you the peace of mind of knowing that the arrangements you particularly want, will be conducted sensibly, in dignified respect to your wishes.
- Pre-paying now will save you, your family or your estate a great deal of money. Bought now at today’s prices, our costs are guaranteed no matter when it is needed or how much the costs of a funeral have risen in the mean time.
Sharing the intimate details of your preferred funeral and repatriation service 5, 10 or 15 years ahead of its time can be quite a difficult concept to consider. If you write it down, who will you entrust it to? If you tell your partner, sons or daughters, how will they remember and plan your every wish in their time of sadness? Only you can advise sensibly on such individual requirements – Burial or Cremation? Church? Hymns? Music? Cars? Memorialisation? Or perhaps you have an environmental requirement such as woodland burial for instance?
Bereaved relatives have grief and anger to contend with. Adding the administrative burden of arranging the repatriation to their confused and emotional state may lead to mistakes being made and unnecessary costs being incurred.
Planning and paying for your repatriation in advance saves your family the anguish and grief of doing anything other than remembering you.
Why Pay Now?
The cost of repatriation has historically increased above the normal levels of inflation and this is a theme that is predicted to continue. A repatriation costing just £850 ten years ago, would cost nearer £2,300 now. It is impossible to say what that cost might be in five or ten more years time.
What is certain is, with a Mears Repatriation Funeral Plan, bought now at today’s prices or paid for in convenient monthly instalments, the quality of the service provided by the Funeral Director in respect of your planned wishes will not cost your family one penny more – whenever it is ultimately needed.
There are some costs outside of our control, which they pay on your behalf - these are known as Disbursements and include fees such as; Airline Charges, Doctors, Clergy, Embassy charges, the plan will make a contribution to these but any increase may necessitate a further payment from you at the time of need if the increase out strips the Fund.
Our charges for the service are non-the-less guaranteed.
