Today we have over half a million deaths a a year in the UK and the average cost of a Funeral is around £3,100.00. Many people cant afford this but are never educated on alternatives. Last year 69,000 families applied for help from the Department of Work and Pensions Social fund but less that 50% were given a grant of somewhere between £300 and the usual maximum of £1200 not even close to the average cost. Do you know that families in Anglesey pay £100 more to Gwynedd Council for a cremation as they don't reside in Gwynedd? Please click on the banner for more helpful information.
