What is Pre Planning

Pre planning a funeral occurs in two specific circumstances each with their own specific applications.


Future Planning

Future planning allows people to look to the future. Many families don’t discuss their personal wishes. Pre planning allows you to set down personal wishes, thus clearly advising your family and loved ones. Some of the items that may be set out:

  • Burial or cremation
  • Church, crematorium or location of the funeral
  • Religious or Life Celebration Funeral
  • Flowers
  • Type of coffin or casket
  • Press notice
  • Order of service
  • DVD Presentation
  • Transportation
  • Viewing
  • Music
  • Personal wishes

Individual wishes can be documented and held either in our files or you own personal documents. While these may be changed at the time of the funeral, it helps families at the time of making funeral arrangement in the future. Our years of experience have shown that many families don’t know or are unclear as to personal wishes of the deceased. Pre planning can help at this difficult time.


Terminal circumstances

In many situations families are expecting a death of their family member or loved one. During this time you can expect the full range of human emotions. Some people may choose to discuss the funeral arrangements during this time. Chris Timmins Funerals is available for these discussions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year.
