Bereaved relatives don't tend to ask for breakdown of costs

You can have a pre-payment plan, that way you decide for yourselves the details. Not like you're wasting money in that you'll never need it

If I am pre-paying for a funeral I would want a break down of the costs to identify how much I will be paying for up front for example the cars or service.

I know what you mean Gerty.
I've been reading about it and sometimes it does not cover all of the cost but a good chunk of it would be helpful.
I'm thinking we may be looking at 2 grand upwards and I suppose they add a bit on to current prices to take into consideration inflation.
I reckon it's better to just pi pee it up the wall. I really feel for the people ironsky and Pete mentioned. What a terrible and stressful situation for them.

Think  I need to get Christmas over with first then look into it more in the New Year.

Did I just mention Christmas!!  :-?

Talk about playing to the audience.

The Judge droned on and on even rabbiting on about another case - which was totally irrelevant as they were not the same at all.

Not a place I would wish to visit on my jaunts TBH.

What do relatives do with their deceased member of family then?
Looks looks DCC/ NEDDC had better give us all a different colour bin to go with the other 3 we have!!

Seriously though the person 'has' be be buried/cremated. Could the people concerned not just pat the responsibilty back to the state?

This is something I have actually been thinking about, more in relation to my daughter who has very little money and will be penalised for her inheritance from me.

The death of my brother this year has brought thoughts of this to the front of my mind.

I have already contacted the Church and the Funeral Directors asking if we could buy plots in the Crem. side of the Church.
The answer to that is no!

The next intention is to pre-pay for the funerals, having discussed with hubby and daughter what they wanted after death.
This should take some of the stress out of the situation when that time comes.

I think that maybe the cost should be capped ironsky but the F/D have to make a living.
I will check out the F/D and hopefully should get a  breakdown of costs.
It will be interesting to see if they can be done 'on a shoe string' or not.

I really shouldn't have to be thinking the way I am but feel I need to protect my daughter.
My intentions are to 'drip feed' some of her inheritance before I die.
The last thing I did was to pay for her garden to be finished off.

She could also do with a 'profile bed' ( hospital bed ) as she struggles getting in/out even with the bar she has.

It's a sad old country getting.!!

After following this long winded court case I sat this morning waiting for the verdict of sentencing.

Zeees, the judge went on and on I was I admit getting bored.

After all this huffing and puffing over the months OP got 5 years in prison - expected to be reduced to about 10 months!

I'm sure the original 3 weeks set for this trial could have been adhered to.
What a waste of time and money!

What did, soft toilet roll. Or the cheaper price  ::)

The Dragon stood working it all out in the middle of Lidl with shoppers walking round me  ;)

I always buy extra of items when they are on offer.
The other week in Lidl, I worked out the although Andrex toliet rolls were more expensive than Cushelle sheet for sheet,
 I could get more for my money if I bought the Andrex - which I did  ;)

Made hubby chuckle  ;)

Often people can get hot headed with a situation and although I'm not minimizing assault I do think people in this category should be allowed to move forward with their lives.
