Funeral Pre-Arrangement Process

Take care of all the pre-arrangement details and give you and your family the peace-of-mind you deserve.

The Basics of Planning

Here's a break-down of the process:

1. Decide To Act On This Need

2. Make An Appointment To Meet Funeral Director

3. Review Service Options

4. Select An Option That Fulfills Your Needs

5. Complete This Process With Your Funeral Director

6. Make Your Wishes Known To Your Family/Executor

In the case of funeral pre-arrangement, another two important steps are involved:

  • • Write out your plan with as many details as possible.
  • • Send your plan to the funeral provider and provide a copy to your executor.

The Benefits of Pre-Paid Funeral Arrangements

Although it may feel uncomfortable, pre-planning a funeral will benefit not only you, but also your family. No matter the type of service, at Considerate Cremation and Burial Services, we are committed to making the funeral prearrangement process as easy as possible. Working alongside you, we will help plan a service that allows your family to say a meaningful goodbye while celebrating a life well lived.

To help you have a better understanding of funeral prearrangement, below we have outlined 6 of the most popular reasons to preplan a funeral


Ensure your wishes are carried out.

Preplanning a funeral service means you get to make sure that your life is honored the way you want. When you create a preneed funeral plan, you are able to leave your family and the funeral home with detailed instructions for how to care for your remains and what the service should entail.


Remove the burden from your family.

By taking control of final wishes, you can relieve your family of this burden. That means that instead of stressing over the arrangement process, your loved ones can spend time comforting one another and preparing to say goodbye.


More payment options.

When you preplan a funeral service, there are many different options to consider in regards to payment. Payment can be made in advance and placed in a trust. You can also apply for an insurance policy to cover the costs or make the payments yourself in increments.


Avoid inflation and rising prices.

When you prepay for a funeral service, you are completing a contract that locks the price in. This means that regardless of the inflation rate, your family will not be charged more for your service when the time comes.


With preplanning, you can get help and input from your family.

One of the most underappreciated benefits of preplanning a funeral service means you can talk it over with your family. Rather than simply planning a service or leaving your family to make these decisions, you can hear their input and create a service together.


Preplanning is done in a relaxed state of mind.

When a family is in immediate need, they often rush to make decisions quickly. Preplanning a funeral does not require the same pressure to make arrangements quickly. Instead, you and your family can take your time and look at the different options available in regards to planning the service or reception afterwards.

Why People Choose to Plan Ahead

Over the years, we’ve had the honor of helping many families preplan their funeral services. Everyone can stand to benefit from preplanning a funeral. People choose to do so for many different reasons. Whether it’s for peace of mind or to avoid leaving the planning and financial burdens on your family, everyone can stand to benefit. During the time we’ve spent assisting families, we’ve learned more about the reasons behind their decision to take funeral pre-arranging seriously.

What We've Heard Over the Years

  • • Pre-planning my funeral was my way of showing my family just how much I love them.
  • • In pre-paying for my funeral arrangements, I've lessened the financial stress on those people I leave behind.
  • • I'm very independent and have always made all my own decisions.
  • • Some say I like to be in control of everything and they're right!
  • • This way my family knows exactly what I want. No one has to get angry or fight, and no one has to feel guilty about making the wrong decision. When I'm gone, they will know what I want.
  • • I remember when my mother died. None of us kids knew what to do and absolutely none of us knew what she wanted. No one bothered to ask! I'm just not going to wait for my kids to ask me what I want. I'm going to tell them.
  • • I guess it's because I want things done my way. I want to provide my funeral pre-arrangements to our local funeral provider to make sure I get what I want.

These are just a few of the comments we've heard during funeral pre-arrangements.  Chances are pretty good that some of these statements are true for you as well.
