Funeral pre-planning is now becoming an increasingly accepted process, and many people are opting to do this. When you are looking for a funeral home to help you pre-plan your funeral, it is necessary to select a credible establishment that provides these services. Many different aspects go into pre-planning your funeral, and here we take a look at them:

  • One of the most important aspects is to conduct some amount of research. You may find that many different funeral homes offer similar services, and looking for one that would be able to cater to your needs is essential. Check their standing in the market and understand what previous clients are saying about them.
     
  • Have a detailed discussion with the funeral director and let them know what your ideas and requirements are. It is also necessary to discuss your budget so they can tell you which services would be the best suited for you.
     
  • When you pre-plan your funeral in this manner, you choose a specific plan that the funeral home offers or opt for a customized one. Once you have decided which package you want, you pay for it based on current rates.
     
  • Regardless of conditions such as inflation, these rates will be stagnant, and you wouldn't have to pay anything more irrespective of the changes in the market.
     
  • When you pre-plan your funeral, you must inform some family member or even a legal advisor about this arrangement. After your death, they would be able to contact the funeral home and make sure that everything is organized as you had planned it

At Charles J. O'Shea Funeral Homes, we provide comprehensive funeral services and can help you with all aspects of the process. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. Our directors are here to help.
