Choosing to arrange and pay for your own funeral in advance may be something you have never considered. Increasingly however, many people are taking this step and are using it in a positive way, to help their families at what will no doubt be a difficult time in the future.
No-one likes to think of their family having to make emotional and financial decisions at a time when they are most distressed. A pre-payment funeral plan allows you to leave instructions on all aspects of your eventual funeral, relieving your family of any uncertainty about what your wishes may be.
We know from experience that many families and friends are comforted by knowing that the wishes of their loved one have been honoured and that such a thoughtful decision was taken to ease their burden.
A pre-payment funeral plan can help in other ways too. For example, if you have no immediate family or your relatives live in a different part of the country, you can be sure that your wishes are known. For some, just knowing that proper provisions have been made regarding the financial aspect of the funeral, gives peace of mind.
Purchasing a funeral pre-payment plan can eliminate some of the worries you may have by:
• Guaranteeing the cost of the funeral regardless of when it may take place (Excluding disbursements paid on your behalf over which we have no control).
• Personalising your funeral under the professional guidance of your Funeral Director.
• Allowing you to purchase a plan without any restrictions as to your age or state of health
• Investing your payment securely with an independent Trust Fund.
We believe in the importance of allowing you to select a plan to suit your needs, tailor-made to your personal requirements and financial circumstances. For this reason we offer flexible options on our plans which allow you to personalise your funeral arrangements.
