The impact of COVID-19 on funerals.

This is the seventh year we have produced our annual report on funeral costs, in which we track year on year changes to the cost using a simple traditional funeral as a benchmark.

Clearly this year has been anything but a benchmark year and we know
that funerals have looked very different over the last 6 months, as we explore in our report.

In addition to our annual funeral cost index, we also carried out research to find out about people’s experiences of arranging a funeral in a pandemic. Organising a funeral can be an upsetting experience but doing so during the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions lockdown imposed has made this distressing experience all the more difficult.
