A Three - Step Plan


Step One - The Conversation

An honest and open family conversation about death is the first and most important step in pre-planning. We need to share our thoughts, preferences and wishes about our final arrangements with those closest to us. Remember though, that this is a conversation and not a monologue. Our final arrangement choices have consequences for our survivors and we must consider what they may want from the service to make it meaningful and meet their emotional needs. This conversation should address disposition choices such as burial or cremation, service choices such as viewing, visitation, religious focus, and the participation of family, friends, as well as Veteran and service organisations.

Step Two - The Funeral Director Or Cemeterian

The next important step is meeting with your Creighton's Funeral Service representative for a discussion about your wishes. They will present options and offer suggestions to help you craft the service that meets your family's needs. Creightons can help you find ways to make meaningful choices while staying within your budget. Forms recording your biographic information, choices of venues, disposition, participants, music, scripture, and merchandise can be prepared and kept in the funeral home or the cemetery's files.

Step Three - Pre-Funding

We all plan for the future, for expected and unexpected.

A Creightons Prepaid Funeral Plan can help ensure you relieve family and loved ones of the responsibility of having to plan and finance arrangements at a time when their grief will be burden enough.

By pre-planning a funeral with Creightons, you choose the type and style of service that you want. There are many decisions to make and these should reflect your preferences, including special requests. So it makes good sense to make them well before-hand. And after all, why shouldn't it be your choice?

Your money paid for a Creightons Pre-Paid Funeral Plan is invested in strict accordance with Government legislation with an experienced independent and registered fund manager- secure and guaranteed against future funeral cost increases. Payment by either lump sum or instalment, a Creighton's Pre-Paid Funeral Plan gives you the peace of mind to get on and enjoy life.

Your Creighton's representative can provide any information you may require to assist in your decision to proceed with a Creightons Pre-Paid Funeral Plan.
