We all have a habit of avoiding conversations about our death. It’s only natural, after all discussions about dying and the decisions that will have to be made by family and loved ones when we are gone are difficult to have.
Sadly, they are decisions that have to be made. However, if they are made in advance, they can save your family a lot of unnecessary stress at a time when they should be focused on coping with their loss and not on the practicalities of funeral arrangements.
What is pre-planning a funeral?
Pre-planning a funeral gives you the power to make the decisions about your final arrangements. Pre-arranging your own funeral will help to ease the burden of your loved ones, it will also alleviate any questions, differences or conflict, which can occur among family members. If any of the following statements make sense to you, then you should consider pre-planning your funeral arrangements:
You want to make things easy for family:
By taking the time to record your funeral wishes in advance you can take comfort in the knowledge that your loved ones will be spared the stress of making decisions on your behalf.
You want to avoid financial stress:
You can also pre-pay for your own funeral. Not only will this protect you from rising costs, but it will also remove any financial burden from your loved ones.
You want to control your final wishes:
If you have specific preferences for your funeral you can record them in your FREE personalised funeral plan, which means that you can rest easy in the knowledge that when the time comes, they will be followed in accordance with your wishes.
