Planning Ahead

Funeral planning is a difficult process involving emotional stress, financial decision making and uncertainty. Without some guidance, the options and information surrounding funerals and arrangement planning can seem overwhelming at an already difficult time.

When faced with the task of arranging a funeral, we can take you through the first stages of funeral planning. The information we offer is given with your interests at heart, and with the goal of helping you to make the personal and financial choices that leave you with peace of mind.

Why Plan Ahead?

You’re pre-planning your own funeral or a loved one has been diagnosed as terminally ill.

Most of us are not prepared to deal with the problems, grief, indecisions and costs of a loved one’s death. Making decisions about memorial property or cremation in advance helps protect your family from having to make these decisions when their lives are complicated by grief.

Advantages of pre-planning include:

  • Puts you in control of decisions
  • You can make choices together with your spouse and family
  • Ensures that Wills, Trusts, and Probate items are in line
  • Important personal records are in a safe location
  • Purchase at today’s prices
  • Pay in installments over time with no interest
