Pre-Arranged Funerals

There are many benefits of pre-arranging your funeral. The first is the ability to secure your funeral costs at today’s prices. You also have the opportunity to identify exactly the type of service and funeral arrangements you wish to have when the time comes.


Pre-arrangement enables all of the family’s decisions about the funeral service to be made in advance, while your family is free from the stress of making difficult and meaningful decisions at an emotional time. 


When choosing a Pre-Paid Funeral Plan there is a range of options available to you:

  • You can simply leave your funeral wishes and personal details in a 'Pre-Arranged Only' Funeral Plan. This Funeral Plan may be changed to a Pre-paid Funeral Plan at any time. 

  • You can choose to leave your funeral wishes and personal details and pay for your funeral plan in full. Our recommended provider, Guardian Plan is an APRA-registered Trust Fund (Australian Prudential Regulations Authority) meaning you can be rest assured that your investment is secure. Funeral Plans that are paid in full will not incur any additional costs. Everything you have paid for remains at that fixed price, regardless of any price increases that may occur in the time before our services are required.   

  • Leave your funeral wishes and personal details and pay by instalments. To qualify for a Pre-paid Funeral Instalment Plan you will require a minimum deposit of 'one-third' of the total plan amount. You are then able to make the remaining payments over either one, two or three years' of equal monthly instalments (fees apply).  


A pre-paid Funeral Plan will incur a pre-paid administration fee of $330 (incl. GST). Please keep in mind that if repayments are not met on time, your Funeral Plan may be subject to price increases under the conditions of the Guardian Plan.  

As each pre-arranged funeral is customised to suit your individual needs, we would like to offer you an obligation free appointment where we can personally meet with you and answer any questions you may have.

Some important issues to consider when you are pre-arranging a funeral:

  • Will it be a religious or civil service?

  • Will the service be held at a chapel, church, cemetery or another location of significance?

  • The type and style of coffin you would like?

  • Would you like the Funeral Director to place any newspaper notices?

  • Special features you would like to include such as a favourite songs, poems or music at the service?

  • Whether you would like flowers on the coffin?

  • The wishes of your family and friends
