Pre-Paid Funerals in Rockhampton

 
Losing a loved one is never easy. At Finlayson & McKenzie Funeral Directors, we offer the option of pre-planning and pre-paying for your funeral, so you can be sure the burden won’t be left to your loved ones when you are gone.

A pre-paid funeral makes it possible for you to arrange the service you want.

Your loved ones can celebrate and honour your life, instead of worrying about managing finances during this emotional time.

By pre-planning and pre-paying for your funeral, you can make important decisions such as whether you’d prefer burial or cremation and decide on your preferred selection of music and poetry to be used in your funeral service.

The Difference Between Prepaid & Pre-arranged

 
While pre-planned and pre-paid funerals may seem similar, these two options differ in significant ways.

A pre-planned funeral usually involves a discussion us to detail any specific arrangements you would like included in your funeral service.
Everything from music, flowers, venue, vehicles and readings/poetry can be decided on.
By pre-planning your funeral, you can be sure that your loved ones will be clear on your wishes and preferences.

However, while a funeral can be pre-planned, unless it has been paid for in advance with contracts signed, your ultimate wishes may not be carried out if, for example, family members – who end up paying for your funeral - decide on different arrangements after your passing.
Pre-paid funerals help to alleviate these concerns.

Just like a pre-planned funeral, by pre-paying for your funeral, your arrangements can be organised in advance with your funeral director.

  • You protect your loved ones from both financial and emotional stress
  • You answer all the funeral questions now many of which your loved ones may struggle with in the future
  • You decide on the funeral service that you want & receive a written contract documenting your wishes

Frequently asked questions

 
 
Q: How do I plan my funeral?
 
It’s a great idea to have a family sit-down to discuss these arrangements. You can talk about the style of casket you prefer, the details of the funeral service, and the budget to allocate for the funeral products and services. Such a conversation makes everyone aware of your wishes. It also takes away the worry involved with making these decisions after you pass away.
