"Taking the time to record your wishes to reflect who you are
and the way you have lived your life.

Making the decision to pre-arrange your funeral wishes can be confronting.

Taking the time to record your wishes can ensure you're farewelled in a fashion that reflects who you are.

There are many considerations and benefits for pre-arranging and we can  guide you through all the

decisions available to you, and ensure you are comfortable with your choices. 

  • You are able to plan a Service or Celebration that reflects your needs and wishes. 

  • You are able to discuss your wishes with your family. 

  • Decisions and wishes are able to be recorded without the challenging emotional effect of a passing.

  • There is peace of mind for yourself and your family, with the knowledge they do not need to worry about funds at the time the funeral service is required. Your funds are invested securely and independently (of the Funeral Director).

  • Your Funeral Bond plan will not affect your means tested pension (and in some circumstances may assist with your financial planning).
