Planning the funeral yourself can save you time and money as well as reducing the stress your family and friends face at a time of intense grief. It will allow you to discuss and plan the funeral arrangements with your family, in the privacy of your home, and avoid a sales focused environment before signing a contract with a funeral director.

IT’S FREE! You’re in total control. You’ll be guided step-by-step through the process of how to plan your funeral. In a matter of minutes, you’ll have created a personalised funeral plan that records all your funeral wishes for your family.

How it works

  • Go to
  • Register as a new Funeral Consumer, or simply login to your account.
  • Select the Plan A Funeral menu option and follow the steps provided in each section.

What information is recorded?

Details of Person Making Arrangements – allows you to record details you or your family will need for official records.

Details of Deceased – allows you to record details of the person who has passed away or a death is impending.

Details of Committal – allows you to record how you would like you or your loved one to be put to rest.

Details of the Funeral – allows you to record your wishes regarding your or your loved one’s funeral.

Each section has help text to guide you through the funeral planning process. To show the hidden help text, click the (?) buttons at each question. We’ll generate an online preview of your funeral plan for you to check. The convenience of online technology means you can prepare your funeral plan anywhere any time you want. You’re able to stop and resume the funeral planning form at your leisure.
