What is a Preplanned Funeral?

A written plan in which individuals make their own arrangements for their funeral services and burial or cremation.

Why Preplan a Funeral?

It gives you comfort that your funeral will take place according to your own wishes. It eases the burden on your family members by:

  • relieving the stress of decision making at a time of grieving
  • removing the difficulty of making arrangements for geographically dispersed family members.

Preplanning and prepaying can be financially beneficial by paying for a future funeral at today's prices.
