Prepaid and Prearranged Funerals
Prepaid and prearranged funerals allow you to choose the funeral service you would like.
Details you may wish to consider are whether you would prefer burial or cremation, where the ceremony will take place, the celebrant/clergy, the flowers, music and press notices. Some people prefer time to think about these arrangements.
A prearranged funeral allows you time to think about and record your wishes with the funeral director at a time that is convenient with you. You do not make a payment at this stage.
A prepaid funeral also allows you time to think about and record your wishes with the funeral director, but you pay in advance for the funeral you choose. By covering future funeral costs, it may lessen financial pressure on your family.
By choosing a prepaid funeral plan, the price of the funeral is fixed at today’s prices. The money paid is invested with Funeral Plan Management, an independent, secure financial institution.
