When it comes to your final arrangements, shouldn't you make the decisions?  The arrangements you make will reflect your exact wishes and desires.  Pre-arranging your own service will help to ease the burden of your loved ones.  It will also alleviate any questions, problems or differences, which can occur among family members.

Pre-payment will protect you from rising costs and it will not be a financial burden on your loved ones. When you plan ahead you know that your wishes will be fulfilled.

Arrangements can be made in the comfort of your own home by clicking the button below.  Fill in as much as you are comfortable with and we'd be pleased to meet with you to discuss further.  See the form below for details.

Pre-planning Importance

Usually the task of arranging for a funeral falls to a small group or to a single survivor who may have little or no warning.  These people are most often unprepared for the many decisions that will need to be made. Pre-arrangement and pre-financing of funerals may be considered. Making your wishes known in advance can do much to help loved ones carry them out.  Discussing arrangements with your family is essential as the funeral affects them most directly.

Pre-planning Benefits

The following benefits of pre-planning and pre-financing funeral arrangements should be considered:

  • You make rational decisions. Someone else, perhaps someone grieving, might find it difficult to make rational, logical decisions on your behalf.
  • You can pay outright
  • You can pay by monthly instalments
  • A funeral paid for in advance can be a good investment. A pre-paid funeral service contract, with an authorized funeral provider, keeps pace with inflation because your funds are placed in an interest-bearing, government supervised trust account.

Funeral insurance policies are also available. We have friendly qualified people who can help you set up a policy that will work with your budget.
