Irish Independent: Most people expect family members to meet cost of their funeral


Insurer Royal London found women were more inclined to consider how their funeral would be paid than men.

As might be expected, age plays a significant role in whether or not people have planned for the cost.

Just one in five of those between the ages of 35 and 44 have made provision for their funeral costs. Some 45pc of those aged over 55 have put money aside, according to the research.
