An Act Of Love

If you’re pre-paying for a funeral, why not pre-plan it as well? It costs very little more to pre-plan a funeral – and it pays a much bigger dividend to your family and loved ones.

Your family will receive some extra peace of mind and less stress at a difficult time. With your input and ideas recorded in advance, they can make their final goodbyes more easily.

Your thoughtfulness means they can spend the first week after your death remembering you and celebrating your life – not chasing birth certificates or trying to find special photos or music pieces.

Preplanning a funeral can happen in two different ways:

  • Future planning, where you make your own preparations and record your wishes to provide your family with guidance and inspiration.
  • Imminent circumstances, where you are expecting the death of a family member or loved one. This is a time of huge emotional turmoil, and many families find that discussing the funeral arrangements helps them process the situation and prepare emotionally for what is to come.

Over years of supporting grieving families and friends through expected and unexpected loss, we’ve come to see that pre-planning is an act of love. It makes it easier for those who live on to deal with loss and say goodbye.

We are always available to support you in funeral planning. We don’t have “office hours” – we are here to serve you when you need support. We are here for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year. Call us now on 9683 5456.

What Would You Pre-Plan?

Pre planning allows you to record your personal wishes, so that your family and loved ones know what you want.

The kinds of things you might document could include:

  • Burial or cremation
  • Church or crematorium
  • Religious or Life Celebration Funeral
  • Flowers
  • Type of coffin or casket
  • Press notice
  • Music
  • Pictures
  • Specific family memories that will tell your story

Your thoughts, ideas and wishes are documented and can be held either in our files or with your own personal documents.

While your these may be changed at the time of the funeral, it helps families at the time of making funeral arrangement in the future.

Many families don’t know or are unclear as to what their special person wanted or would like. Pre planning can help them enormously at this difficult time.


What Is Pre-PayingYour Funeral?

Pre-paying you funeral means that you’re paying for a future funeral at today’s prices. A pre-paid funeral locks in costs and protects against future price rises. You will also give your family peace of mind that at least this financial aspect is covered.

Your money is safe
Money collected for pre-paid funerals is placed into a Funeral Bond secured by major banks. The money is held in your name rather than that of the Funeral Director and can only be redeemed on the production of a death certificate.

Payment is guaranteed
Unlike Funeral Insurance, you can rely on your funeral being paid for.

Depending on the policy and the continuity of premium payments, funeral insurance sometimes lapses – so make sure you fully understand the investment you’re making.

If you are considering pre paying or pre planning your funeral please call us direct for an informal no obligation discussion.

Our professional funeral services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call us now on 9683 5456.

The Gift Of Preparation – So The Inevitable Is A Bit Easier

Don’t rob yourself and your loved ones of a special, meaningful farewell because it feels “wrong” to plan ahead while someone you care about is still living.The ultimate respect you can pay a loved one is an authentic, meaningful, well-prepared celebration of their life. Taking some time to get organized before the final moment isn’t ghoulish or uncaring – it’s being kind to yourself and respectful to the person you’re losing. It won’t get any easier after their death.

Over 50% of people wait till their loved one has died before they even choose a funeral director to care for the body – much less plan the funeral.

When they actually get to the planning process, they’re struggling to stay afloat in a sea of grief, loss and stress. In this state they then have to do something they’ve only done (if they’re lucky) once or twice in their lives – to plan the complex event that isa funeral.

Be kind to yourself, be kind to your family and show your true respect to the person you’re losing by planning ahead. Don’t just prepay a funeral – PREPLAN it.

Our professional funeral services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call us now on 9683 5456.
