Pre-planning your funeral

There are many advantages in planning ahead – relieving some of the emotional stress on your family, as well as reducing the financial burden the cost of a funeral will present to your family. Perhaps most importantly, planning ahead gives you the opportunity to create a very personal and meaningful funeral ceremony for yourself – one that reflects who you are and what was significant to you throughout your life.

STEP 1: Arranging your funeral

We will guide you through all options and outline the costs involved so that you can design a funeral service reflecting your wishes.

Some important areas to consider


Style of funeral you prefer:

  • Celebration of life
  • Religious
  • Memorial (no coffin)
  • Very simple service
  • No service

Other considerations:

  • Burial or cremation
  • Type of coffin or casket
  • Flowers on your coffin
  • Service sheet handouts
  • Photo tribute
  • Newspaper notice
  • After funeral catering

STEP 2: Payment options

Paying for your funeral guarantees we will carry out your funeral to your wishes, it also locks in the price at the time of signing the contract and all items will be honoured regardless if funeral costs increase (with the exception of burial costs).

Two options are available.

Option 1: Up front

Payment can be made in one full amount at the time of signing the contract.

Option 2: Instalments

After an initial deposit, regular monthly instalments can be made over 1, 2 or 3 years. A surcharge applies for this payment option.

STEP 3: My Personal Wishes

We have a wonderful booklet available titled "My Personal Wishes" that will guide you through the additional options for your funeral that are not covered in the basic pre-paid, such as music selection, special poems, readings or how you would like to be remembered.

Taking home this booklet gives you the chance to take your time filling in your preferences for your own funeral service. Once completed, place it with your other important personal papers so when the time comes your family will be able to carry out your wishes.

Please ask us for a complimentary copy of our "My Personal Wishes" booklet.
