Talking about your wishes for your funeral can be difficult. Families often tell us they don’t know what their loved one would have wanted, so if you want input to your funeral service, then the simplest way is to pre-plan your funeral.
Regardless of whether you’re planning as you grow older, or if you’re facing a terminal situation with a loved one, we are here to support you through this emotional process.
Pre-planning lets you decide on what you want so you can easily pass the information to your family when the time comes. You can plan as much or as little as you like – pre-planning lets you find out what’s available and set down your decisions in writing.
These instructions can be stored with us as well as in your personal records.
You might like to consider:
· Whether you want to be buried or cremated
· The venue for your service
· If you want a Life Celebration or more traditional funeral
· Choose your coffin or casket
· Pick your flowers
· Other details like music, transport, the viewing, and any personal touches
Whatever you want to discuss, we are here to help. We’re committed to helping you celebrate your life the way you want.
It might seem surprising, but there are certain tax advantages to pre-planning your funeral that we can discuss with you. It’s based on individual circumstances, so click here to find out more (read more)

Thank you"Michael
" I would like to thank your for organising of mum's service. It all went very smoothly which is actually what is needed at such a difficult time for the family.
