Only 33% of people had communicated with their partner about the type of funeral they wanted.

It was found that most people were scared of death and what mattered most was quality of life.

Eve Richardson, chief executive of the National Council for Palliative Care and the Dying Matters Coalition, said: "Although someone in Britain dies every minute, our research has found that many people do all they can to avoid talking about dying. It's encouraging that most people think talking about death is less of a taboo now than previously, but there is still a long way to go."
