Funeral Planning

Thinking about a funeral can be a difficult concept but Pre-arranging your funeral before the time, is as sensible as making a Will.

Many of our families have found it a great relief to have their own or a family member’s funeral planned ahead,  It also lets you take the time to consider the ceremony you’d like so that your grieving loved ones know your wishes and any other specific requests you would like in their time of sadness. 

Some questions you might ask yourself are...

• Is there a piece of music, song or poem you would like?
• Do you have favourite colour or flower for the casket spray?
• Would you like to be buried or cremated?
• Do you wish for donations to a cause in lieu of flowers?

 

A Pre Arrangement form helps the family

Sometimes it is also hard to get information required for the death registration as often details can be difficult to find, so recording this information on the Pre-Arrangement Form in advance is an easy way to assist your loved ones in their time of loss. 

You can record as much or as little information as you feel comfortable with when submitted online it is kept under the strictest confidence until required.

Prepaid Funeral Plan

Most of us plan for financial events throughout our lives, like buying a car, a house, having a family etc. Death is another event but one which is a sad and stressful time for family to have to deal with.

A Prepaid Funeral can take the financial burden off your family at a very difficult time and you will be content in the knowledge that the financial side has been taken care of.
