Cremations are generally less expensive than burials since you do not have to pay for a coffin or a grave site. There are no set rules with cremations and opting for this choice allows more choices than a traditional burial. You can opt for a simple cremation or a private ceremony without anyone present. Another option is to first present the coffin at a memorial before cremating.
Although you can save costs with cremation, the costs of the memorial service and catering for your guests can also rack up the costs quickly. Whatever your plans for your funeral or your loved-ones, it is a highly recommended to take out funeral cover in order to pay for this event. Make sure you know what your needs for funeral cover are when asking for a comparative quote because the cover you choose will influence the costs of your monthly premiums.
