“Is this what they would of wanted?” is an all to common question when families come to plan a funeral. Making your wishes clear ahead of time can prove to be a great comfort to loved ones.


Pre-planning is simply the process of drawing up plans for a funeral before they are needed. It involves gathering a variety of family information and making decisions about the type of service you want (e.g. where the funeral itself should take place, and who might participate.) Working together with a funeral director you can plan, organise and record all of your requests.

Our staff can lead you through the process, providing advice and guidance along the way. They will ensure that you have all the information you need about our products and services, allowing you to make informed decisions.

You may choose to pay for the arrangements in advance, or your plans can simply be held on file at the funeral home to be carried out when they are needed and invoiced to the estate or family at that time. Our staff will explain your options when you meet them.


While everyone who makes the decision to pre-plan has their own reasons for doing so, we are often told the greatest motivators are the desire to protect their family by ensuring that they won’t face the difficult task of making arrangements at a time of loss and the financial burden is eliminated.

We advocate pre-planning because our experience has shown us that not only is planning ahead virtually stress-free, but people have the time and information they need to make carefully considered, pressure free decisions that are the right choices for themselves and their families.


For many people funeral pre-planning has become an extension of the estate planning process. It is simply one more thing they choose to take care of as they plan for retirement and the next stage in their lives.

Choosing to pre-fund funeral arrangements is another way in which people can protect their families, and it can mean locking in the cost of the arrangements at current prices.


Each person’s individual circumstances along with other factors will influence this decision, but there area number of advantages to pre-payment that you should consider.
