Depending on which country you live in, the cost of a funeral service is likely to differ enormously.
Indeed, around the globe, average funeral costs range from an eye-watering £16,242 in Japan, a modest £512 in Africa and a bargain basement £33 in China.
In the UK, the average cost of a funeral is £3,284 -- and rising -- which is why we offer you a range of pre-paid funeral plans designed to ease funeral expenses and provide complete peace of mind.
Admittedly, though, it's not only the cost of a funeral that differs around the world.
In Ghana, for example, the deceased can be buried in a coffin in the shape of an aeroplane, a bottle of beer or even a cigarette, while Aborigines have been known to place their deceased inside a tree.
