#ITVTonight – Funerals: A Costly Undertaking

On the 3rd November ITV Tonight aired a program about the rising cost of funerals. It ca be views here http://www.itv.com/hub/tonight/1a2803a1049 until 2nd December 2016.

In the show it highlighted not just the fact that funeral costs have doubled in the last 10 years but also that they continue to rise.

Lucy Coulbert of The Individual Funeral Company showed that a really thoughtful, caring and personal funeral doesn’t have to cost the earth.

​We work with Lucy and really like her approach.

The show also really showed, without actually saying so, that planning ahead makes an awful lot of sense, in fact 53% of people didn’t know what there partners wishes were! Taking out a prepaid funeral plan makes great sense both emotionally and financially but not everyone can afford a mainstream plan or they might not fit with an individuals personal desires.

That’s where the GFG Plan fits in. Start small and build, be specific, be free, be as personal and as unique as you like. Add money when you want, regularly or in dribs and drabs, and still benefit from an excellent rate of growth.

Time’s they are a changing. And as far as we’re concerned that’s a good thing. it’s your life, it’s your death, take control.
