Why prearrange a funeral?
Whether a death is sudden or expected, it can be stressful to make decisions and think clearly during a difficult time. Some of the main reasons people consider prearranging funeral services are: + Peace of Mind. Knowing you have all your affairs in order is a truly selfless act. It releases the family from the burden at such a difficult time. It’s comforting during life to know your family is prepared in the event of your death. + Stating your wishes. Knowing funeral choices are being carried out to your specifications, rather than waiting until a death occurs when it is such a difficult time. You will have a more calm and thoughtful time to reflect on your wants and needs.

What is prearranging?
Prearranging is making funeral arrangements prior to a death occurring. You can prearrange your own funeral or you can prearrange a funeral for a loved one. Prearrangements are divided into three parts: + Vital Statistics: Necessary information required for the registration of a death with the Ontario Government. + Funeral Information: To dicate your personal choices for a visitation, a funeral, burial or cremation. + Family and Personal Information: Necessary to compose an obituary.

What is a prepaid funeral?
Once you have prearranged your services, prepaying is an optional step you may to wish to consider. Prepaying your funeral can be done in one payment or through a payment plan that suits you. Once a funeral is prepaid in full, it is considered “guaranteed,” which prevents price inflation: the prices are such that there are no additional charges.

What are the costs involved?
Prearranging doesn’t have to cost anything at all. You can simply start your wishes by filling out our form from our website. We will start a file on your behalf at no cost. (Be sure to let your family or next of kin know you have made arrangements with us.) You can also make an appointment with one of our licensed funeral directors or licensed funeral planners to assist you.

What should be done after making prearrangements?
Once you have preparranged your funeral, it is very important to advise your family. Place a copy of the prearrangement contract, will and important documents in a place where your next of kin can easily find them. Funerals are not for the deceased but for the living who may need or want an opportunity to say goodbye. It’s important to have your plans reflect the needs of loved ones. In order to do this, you need to communicate with them before you prearrange.
