Many people reading this will understand that when a loved one passes away it can be an emotional and stressful time in worrying about financing a funeral. Most are upset, and vulnerable. Often not thinking straight, they put the funeral into the hands of a local undertaker without shopping around.
This useful book is written from personal experience. Over recent years funeral costs have risen largely. The same undertaker that my family had used for over thirty years which had always previously provided a good service at a reasonable fee, now seemed very expensive. Other established high street undertakers were in the same cost range and one was nearly another 20% more expensive.
