Talking about a funeral is not an easy conversation to start but taking the time to arrange your funeral now offers a number of benefits that often make the process worthwhile.
A preplanned funeral means your wishes are known and that services can be carried out just as you want them. Your funeral director will review the plan with your family but they can be spared the challeging task of making a multitude of decisions on an already difficult day. It allows for informed choices, that suit you and your family, without the pressure of time and the stress of grief. And, if you choose to prefund the arrangements you make it can provide cost savings.
Taking the time to arrange your funeral in advance means your loved ones will have one less thing to worry about at a time of loss and grief. Prearranging and prefunding a funeral can be a genuine gift to your family.
Take a short survey designed to help you determine if you've considered all the reasons preplanning might make sense for you and your family.
