Planning ahead is something we all do. We plan for our children’s education, weddings, a family holiday, birthdays and social gatherings. All the things that we as families do that are joyful, and intended to be positive happy times to look forward to and enjoy. As families we prepare for our future by investing wisely, enacting insurances, and providing superannuation. That preparation is designed to protect our family’s future and wellbeing.
Unfortunately, very few people plan ahead for a funeral because of the emotional cost. Such planning centres on a sad and possibly traumatic event in our lives, a time we are not looking forward to. A time of loss. And a time of hurt. Unless forced into the situation, most families often do not even discuss what should happen if someone they love dies.
Consequently, they are left powerless at a time when they are most vulnerable. Decisions must be made quickly and these decisions, once put into place, can never be changed. At such a time, families are often left wondering if they have done the right thing. Have they done what their deceased loved one would have wanted?
Sometimes they are left with debt they cannot afford because of funeral expenses.
When thinking about funeral arrangements in advance, what you are doing is not just about prepaying and safeguarding the cost of funeral expenses. It is entering into perhaps the most caring and thoughtful gesture you can make to someone you care for. Because you are leaving them nothing to do, no major costs to pay, and no decisions to make.
You are leaving them simply the best chance to recover from the loss of someone important and more importantly, you are ensuring they know that they have done the right thing.
Is to meet with our friendly and professional staff and discover what type of funeral you or your family wish to have. We would discuss your options in detail, helping us understand your wishes and choices. At this point we will tailor and cost the funeral to your needs. That way you have an understanding of the costing of the funeral at today’s prices.
We are happy to visit in the comfort of your own home or at our offices.

We then discuss options available to you for funding of the funeral. We partner with Foresters Friendly Society to find the best funding solution for your needs.
