Planning Ahead

CRO HCR SeniorsPaperwork image5 10 13Being prepared appeals to many people. Planning ahead has many benefits:

  • You have the benefit of time to consider your wishes and discuss these with others if desired.
  • You can be as specific as you like about your preferences.
  • Much of the stress involved in organising a funeral is removed for family members as they won't need to make difficult decisions while they are grieving and can be reassured that they carrying out your wishes.
  • It can also help prevent disagreements (though it is important to note that your wishes are not legally binding, though the executor of your will is morally obliged to observe them).

To assist with planning ahead our free Plan Ahead Funeral Form allows you to document your personal and funeral wishes. This can be done in the privacy of your own home or we are happy to meet with you to discuss your options and wishes.

Once received your information will be kept on file for future reference.
