Planning Ahead

Planning ahead for your own funeral or that of a loved one is not an easy thing to do. However, by taking care of your affairs now you will have a peace of mind knowing that some of the emotional and financial burden on your family in the future will have been reduced as well as ensuring your funeral will be carried out as you want.

During our life we plan for possible misfortunes with various forms of insurances but few prepare for the inevitable. Once the first step has been taken to pre-plan your funeral, you can then make arrangements to pay for some or all of your funeral in advance.

Batemans Bay, Moruya and Narooma Funerals offer investment options through Foresters Friendly Society for pre-paying your funeral.
