Pre-Paid Funeral Plans
Starting the conversation
It’s understandable that discussing a topic such as the planning of your funeral in advance, may seem like a morbid and difficult conversation to have with the ones your love. Nevertheless, there are significant financial and emotional benefits to planning your funeral ahead of time.
The majority of these benefits are experienced by the loved ones you leave behind and the knowledge that your funeral is taken care of and you won’t be a burden to your family or friends at an upsetting and difficult time is an immense comfort.
You will know those close to you well enough to understand whether a direct or indirect approach is the best way to start a conversation about such a sensitive subject. We understand through experience, that once you can start the conversation it is usually positive and many difficult decisions can be taken.
Making an agreement
Making an agreement about your own funeral
After death the person who is left to arrange your funeral has no legal obligation to follow instructions you have left. There are many examples of arguments between remaining family members who disagree on the type of funeral – even between Cremation and Burial.
If you have made advanced plans for your Funeral this can be part of your legal will so there is no doubt your plans will be carried out and there is no reason for disagreement between the loved ones you’ve left behind.
