Research of 2,000 adults also revealed 34 per cent have no idea about the costs of a funeral, with 24 per cent putting off looking into it in more detail.
While 35 per cent are fully aware of what their nearest and dearest wants but worry how they’d be able to pay for it in the current climate.
And further research of 1,501 adults who have arranged a funeral in the last five years revealed 39 per cent had to pay for certain elements out of their own pocket.
Of these, 19 per cent reported the deceased didn’t have any money set aside for their own funeral and for 34 per cent, the death was unexpected, so no plan was in place.
This led to 47 per cent feeling stressed, and 31 per cent struggling to cope with the added financial strain.
The insight was revealed in the British Seniors Funeral Report 2022, which found the average cost of a funeral has risen by more than £500 in just 12 months.
A spokesman from the brand, which provides funeral cover to ensure family members aren’t left with a large bill when the moment comes, said: “Huge uncertainty in the world from many contributing factors has meant just like everything else, funeral costs have inevitably had to rise.
“However, many are feeling like they couldn’t give a loved one the send-off they deserve because they’ll have to cut corners on the details due to money being particularly tight at the moment.”
