Charles J. O’Shea Funeral Homes is a specialized service provider which is going to help you organize or prepare for a funeral. With this in mind, we try to make everything possible in order to provide our clients with the best possible service, understanding the sensitivity of the matter.

Perhaps you have never even considered this particular option before, or it hasn’t really come to mind, but funeral pre-planning has advantages that you might not have accounted for. This could give you the much-needed peace of mind and it, can spare the extra stress of your loved one during a particularly difficult time. At the time of your death, the people who loved you are going to experience a wide range of terrible emotions and they will be undergoing a significant amount of grief and pain. This is why that’s the last time that you want them to be worried about monetary expenses and how to handle them.


Prepare Your Family for Terrible Times

Now, it’s not really necessary for you to tell your family that you’ve pre-arranged your funeral because a lot of people would get that with certain mixed feelings. A lot of people would also believe in different superstitions and that’s something which could trigger unnecessary worries. With this in mind, you might want to make sure that you keep it a secret – there is no way for them to find out because we are going to be particularly discrete when it comes to it.

Get in Touch With Us

If you decide that you want to pre-plan your funeral, you should contact our staff in order to get you started. You can easily start with filling a comprehensive and easy to follow online form and we are going to get back to you. However, it would be even better if you came in person so that we could discuss the details at length. You shouldn’t consider this as something unnatural because there are thousands of people who are already doing it. Consider this as sort of an insurance that’s going to protect your loved ones from heavy financial turmoil in the event of your death.


We at Charles J. O’Shea Funeral Homes are going to make sure that your request is thoroughly processed and are going to take all the necessary steps as you require. In case you have any kinds of questions, you should go ahead and contact us as soon as possible so we could easily discuss them at length.
