Funeral costs rise

The cost of dying has reached record highs of almost £10,000, fuelled by an increase in elaborate send-offs. Disney-themed funerals where everyone dresses up as their favourite character, all-pink wedding-style ceremonies in a rejection of the traditional black garb, and a motor-cycle and sidecar in place of a hearse, are just some of the ways that families today are commemorating the lives of lost loved ones. It means funeral costs are now higher than they have ever been, having increased year on year for more than a decade.
