Be Financially Prepared

Financially prepare for your service, getting an accurate estimate on the total cost and beginning the process of setting aside some funds. This is another important way to ease responsibilities for your family and friends.

How the Process Works

The pre-planning experience is by no means a morbid one. On the contrary, it is a positive and even comforting step you can take to make sure that all arrangements are made for your service, that those who survive you will be able to celebrate your life knowing full well that the service is exactly as you wished it would be. Pre-planning is an act of service, as well: It minimizes the chance that any planning difficulties, obstacles, or uncertainties will arrive to distract your family members during their season of bereavement and reflection.

Benefits of Pre-Planning

Planning a funeral for yourself or for a loved one requires organization in the midst of grief and sadness. Consult these guidelines on the most important elements of funeral planning that you and your loved ones should know.

  • Pre-arranging provides you or your loved one with the opportunity to become informed about the plethora of options regarding the funeral or cremation service. No two services are alike, and individuals can choose to showcase videos, photographs, music, special readings or any other involved elements with family and friends.
  • Pre-arranging ensures that you document your wishes. A living will may cover medical treatment, but there are still funeral costs. You can remove some of the burden for someone making decisions who may not be aware of your wishes.
  • Paying ahead of time eases future financial burden. It may benefit your surviving loved ones to prepay for your funeral or cremation services, as the costs of the products and services you choose may never be lower. Prearranging makes financial sense. We have many choices for payment plans.
  • Begin the process by writing down your personal information or your loved one’s information.
  • Write down important information to keep on hand as you plan the service, like social security number, ethnicity, religion, residence, birth information and so on. Having this information is helpful throughout the funeral planning process.
  • Selecting individuals to be a part of the funeral service in advance takes away some of the emotional burden. You are able to select readers, performers and other individuals to be a part of the service in advance.

How to Plan a Funeral Step-By-Step


You'll find that this easy-to-follow checklist will streamline the process of planning for your funeral. Grief is a challenging time for everyone affected by the death of someone close. We've compiled some helpful information on what you should do when grieving so that they have their best chance at getting through these tough phases in life by using our extensive compilation which will walk them through planning funerals down as far as making decisions about type/costume choice after death has occurred among many other important topics.

Types of services include:

  • Religious Funeral Service: A funeral is a ceremony that takes place to say goodbye and celebrate the life of someone who has died. It typically occurs at religious places of worship where there are rituals from their religion, such as Hinduism for Hindus or Christianity in America with Christian customs like organ music played by gospel singers during service times.
  • Military Funeral Service: A funeral service that can happen at the deceased family’s request if they were a part of a military organization, and it sometimes involves an honor guard participating in your loved one's final rites.
  • Fraternal Funeral Service: The funeral should be a celebration of the life and legacy that this person left behind. It would only make sense to incorporate aspects from their fraternal involvement for it not just be another mundane event where people go about doing things they don't care about or remember talking about at all!
