If you’re looking to plan the perfect funeral, then it’s important to understand the process and what aspects you need to consider.
It’s never easy imagining the event that celebrates your life once you’ve passed away. That’s why we’ve created a useful overview of the most important parts of a funeral, to make those difficult decisions just a little bit easier.
Your Budget For The Right Funeral Plan
Before you consider the more sentimental aspects of funeral planning, you should work out your budget. No matter how big or small, there’s a plan available for all price ranges. Certain luxuries such as transportation and ceremony services can be removed or adapted to make sure your priorities are met where it matters most.
At Stanley J Nicholas, our plans range from budget direct options covering the bare minimum to premier services that include the organisation, implementation, and responsibility of your funeral from beginning to end.
Wills & Handling Of Assets
There are difficult decisions involved with distributing wealth and assets amongst loved ones after you’re gone. However, it’s a necessary evil to not only avoid your belongings ending up in the wrong hands but to ensure there is no dispute between family and friends once you’ve passed.
We recommend discussing this with legal representation to ensure everything is filed and notarised professionally. For advice on this matter, and to discuss the process, you can get in touch with one of our knowledgeable funeral directors.
The Location Of Your Funeral Plan
Another important part to consider is the location of your funeral. This doesn’t just include where the event will be held, but where your final resting place will be, too.
This feature is highlighted because quite often there are specific places in the world with added sentimentality to an individual. Whether you want a green burial on a special piece of land, or to rest beside generations of other family members, we can accommodate this with an extensive funeral plan.
Burial Or Cremation?
Choosing between burial or cremation is one of the harder aspects of your funeral plan, and only an individual can know which is more appropriate for them. On the one hand, a cremation can work out faster and more cost-effective. However, a burial could be more appropriate for religious or personal reasons.
Tailoring Your Funeral & How You Want To Be Remembered
Once all the technicalities have been covered and you’ve made all the official decisions, you can then move on to the most vital part of the funeral planning process – how you want to be remembered.
The design of your funeral will impact those that attend. So it’s important to create a send-off that reminds them of good memories and loving times. Features that help tailor a unique, individual ceremony are the following:
- Dress Code
- Floral Arrangements
