New Tax adds to steep rise in the cost of dying

The Telegraph has written an fascinating article about how the cost of death is rising: 

"The average cost of death is rising as grieving families are hit with bills for inheritance tax, probate fees and expensive coffins, analysis shows. Research published by the Taxpayers’ Alliance analyses the taxes and charges involved when someone dies. From 2019 to 2020, the Government is projected to receive £5.35 billion from relatives in what would mark the highest amount ever."
