One thing is sure as we enter the New Year – funeral directors are going to have yet another prosperous year in 2018.
The only question is – how much fatter will they get?
In the UK the average costs of a very basic funeral have gone up more than 100% since 2004, whereas the total inflation rate since 2004 is 38%.
The funeral cost in 2004 was £1,900, today it’s as much as £4,000.
