Perhaps you have never considered this option before or it just hasn’t crossed your mind. Pre-planning your funeral has many advantages that can give you a peace of mind and can spare your loved one’s extra stress during a difficult time. At the time of your death, your loved ones will be experiencing many new emotions and will be going through a great deal of pain and grief. The time is now to start thinking ahead and planning your funeral. 

 

Arranging a funeral while going through a loss of a loved one can be difficult and become overwhelming. Especially if there are no instructions to guide them in the right direction of your wishes for your funeral.  This is why a pre-arrangement can benefit you and your family.

 

When you decide it is time to start your planning, you can contact our staff at, Tindall Funeral Homes, to get you started or you can start by filling out an online form. One of our funeral directors will get your pre-need arrangement ready and go over all the required information with you.

 

Here are some of the topics you will need to consider:

 

Burial or Cremation: There are options for what you would like done with your body at the time of your death. You have the option to have burial, in which case you will need to choose a casket. Or you can choose a cremation, in which you would choose an urn and where you would like your final resting place to be.

 

Funeral & Memorial Service: Where would like your funeral to be held? You will decide between a church, a funeral home, or graveside and you will consider details about how your service will be run. Will it be a public ceremony or private and what time in the day would you prefer?

 

Atmosphere Details: This included any music and sound, flower arrangement colours, your viewing outfit and any jewelry. This is the category in which you can give special instructions for your funeral.

 

You may be asking yourself, “What if I change my mind on the location of my funeral?” The good news is that this plan is customized to you and will be made fit for your wishes and desires. You can find out more information on transferring a pre-need arrangement from a blog we have previously posted, here.

 

Now you have an idea of what a pre-arrangement is and the benefits it offers to you and your family. If you would like to ask any other questions regarding this topic you can contact the professional at, Tindall Funeral Home, here
