Frequently Asked Questions

  • When is a good time to start thinking of advanced funeral planning?

    Pre-planning offers individuals with a sensible and straightforward process of ensuring their affairs are in order. Whether you are a young married couple, retired or single, planning in advance will guarantee your wishes are carried out exactly to your requirements.

  • Can I pay for the service in one lump sum?

    Yes. It is not required, however, we recommend it as a way of protecting yourself against inflation. All fees paid in advance will be placed into an annuity or trust registered in your name until after your death and the services have been fulfilled.
