We plan for every aspect of life. Weddings, having a family, schooling, holidays, and even our retirement are all planned out perfectly.
We even plan and prepare for what might happen such as fires, accidents or storms by taking out insurance but because most of us do not like to think about death – we seem to avoid making important funeral decisions in advance.
Now more than ever, it is important to plan ahead.
Just think for a moment; if you died tomorrow would your family know what to do or even understand what your wishes were for your funeral?
Apart from ensuring that you get the funeral you want, pre-planning allows you to gather all of the important information needed to arrange a funeral.
Documents and information others would have trouble locating need to be assembled in one common location known to your executor and your family. Things like military discharge papers, birth and marriage certificates, Centrelink numbers, bank accounts, insurance policies. All of these items need to be organised to eliminate frustrating hours of searching and to be certain everything will be found.
Let us help you make a start with a free Alex Gow Funerals pre-planning kit that will help you organise your personal information. We can even assist you in making a permanent record of your wishes so there is no confusion.
You can then get on with living and enjoying life, knowing that everything is in order for the future.
