I’ve just passed my 35th birthday and for the first time, it was completely different. Not only did I feel different about my birthday but I also felt different about those around me.
I have a wife, kids, pets, house, car, mortgage, pension and lots of responsibilities.
I dread to think.
Looking at the average cost of a UK funeral being around £4,500 thanks to FuneralZone and the average life expectancy in the UK to be just over 80 that gives me 45 years at around £100 a year or just under £10 a month. That obviously doesn’t take into account rising inflation and increased costs when the time comes.“In 2005 the average price of a funeral was £1,965* where as in 2017 they more than doubled to reach £4,078*. With funeral costs increasing at a greater rate than inflation, prices are expected to be £8,067* by 2027.”
If the last few days have shown me something, it’s that the future is coming quickly.
