April Fool’s Day 2017 – the CremMate
As everyone in the funeral industry knows, funeral costs are always increasing. With this in mind, Funeralbooker used April Fools day as a way of getting people talking about their own funerals and bringing it to the public's attention. On Funeralbookers web blog they said- 'Crematorium costs are among the highest single fee that bereaved families will pay for, and these figures have been rising steadily at a rate well above inflation; as our research into last year’s crematorium and cemetery fees showed. We’re currently gathering data for 2017’s Crematorium and Cemetery Price Index and early indications show that this trend shows no signs of abating. We wanted to take the opportunity afforded by April Fool’s Day to make a serious point about the spiralling cost of saying goodbye to loved ones. It’s been great to see that it has kick-started a much-needed conversation about the cost of dying and we hope that it might have initiated discussions about funeral wishes among families. Since it is unlikely that home cremation will become an accepted and widespread way of affordably saying goodbye in the future, for the time being you can read our suggestions on how to cut funeral costs and you can compare funeral director fees in your area' Here at My Funeral Plan Supermarket we really take our hats off Funeralbooker for a fantastic approach to an issue that has to be addressed.
