Funeral Costs on the rise

There have been several news stories recently highlighting the cost of funerals rising by 80% from 2004 to 2014. Is this scaremongering or a real concern?

One thing is for sure is that the costs from suppliers and 3rd parties are rising with some Crematoriums having increased their charges by £150 in the last two years alone. This might not seem much but when you add up all of the 3rd parties smaller rises as well as supplier increases it all adds up meaning that the cost of dying is going up.
