My wife and I decided to purchase a funeral plan, as we are now both in our seventies, and thought we should do this while we still have most of our faculties reasonably intact.
We decided, after browsing some websites,to contact "Forward Plan'',as they seemed to be the most reasonably priced locally,and, importantly, the best plan that we could find anywhere
We are now so glad that we can relax and enjoy our remaining years, knowing that we have made the right choice for our final exit.
