We Can Show You What To Do & How To Save Money In The Process!


We all come to a stage in our lives when it's natural to think about what will happen when we are no longer around. We often wonder about loved ones and what we would like to leave to them as our parting gift.


Well, whatever about the positive things we can leave to them, there are some things that we simply should not leave to them! One of which is the burden of high funeral costs and the worry of deciding on funeral arrangements. In fact, in 70% of cases, a person passes away without having made proper funeral arrangements, leaving this burden on their grieving family members. Astonishing, isn’t it?

Fortunately, through proper Funeral Planning, you can ensure that your loved ones are not confronted with this unnecessary burden in a time which is already very traumatic.


Planning a funeral involves a variety of different tasks ranging from selecting a funeral planner, choosing a casket, deciding on burial and cremation options to organizing gatherings after the funeral itself. In many cases, the best people to help you with these tasks will be funeral service providers or funeral directors. They will have considerable experience in planning funeral ceremonies, preparing the deceased’s body for public viewing, selecting caskets, and almost every other aspect of the funeral process. They will be able to advise you of the options available to you and ultimately help you put your plan in place. That said, it’s still important to have independent information on the subject – you wouldn’t put your full faith in a car sales man when buying a car would you?


In putting together a funeral plan you will need to consider matters such as:-

  1. whether you want to donate your body to science;
  2. whether you want to be burial or cremated;
  3. where you want your remains buried, scattered or kept;
  4. the type of ceremony that you will have and where it will be held;
  5. whether you will want visitations; whether you wish to be embalmed;
  6. whether there will be a procession to the cemetery;
  7. how your body will be transported;
  8. how your family will travel to and from services;
  9. the funeral products you wish to buy such as caskets, burial vaults and urns; and
  10. lots more.

To help you plan your funeral or indeed someone else’s, we’ve put together a simple and easy to understand Funeral Planning Guide which will help you through the process of planning your funeral – and of course give you all the useful information you need to make informed decisions!
