Open for 10 years, Open for life blog
In 2003, Open started its business selling funeral plans within a market that was both young and disrupted.
Gaining momentum was a challenge - but with the vision of providing a truly open and honest funeral plan service, and with the backing of a highly credible independent funeral director (established in 1856 no less), we were convinced we would succeed.
Thankfully, after the dust had settled, trust began to be gained based on our open approach - and solid performance and strong business growth quickly followed.
Now, 10 years on, Open Prepaid Funerals is widening the availability of its highly regarded funeral planning services to make them available to consumers in the comfort of their own home.
Perhaps you’ll be aware that the cost of a funeral has risen dramatically in the last decade or two. In fact, it has been reported that the cost of a funeral has almost doubled in that period. The sad truth is that passing away can leave a heavy emotional and financial burden on your loved ones, so it makes sense to tackle this sensitive subject in advance.
If you’re thinking of forward planning a funeral, then for your own peace of mind - and for the sake of those you leave behind - why not consider an Open Prepaid Funeral Plan?
