Advance Funeral Planning Frequently Asked Questions

What is Funeral Pre-Planning?
Funeral Pre-Planning is a practical way of deciding and communicating your wishes for your own funeral or for a loved one. This can be done in the comfort of your own home or at one of our offices.

What are the benefits of Funeral Pre-Planning?
Funeral Pre-Planning is part of an overall sensible estate plan. Discussing funeral pre-planning with me or one of our Funeral Directors will give you the opportunity to ask questions. You will understand what services and product offerings are available and the related costs involved. By doing so in advance you can make unhurried decisions regarding the type of casket you wish to have, your preferences for the funeral service, and indicate your choice for burial, entombment or cremation. With this knowledge you can make educated, informed and unhurried decisions.

Can I pre-pay for my funeral service?
Yes. It’s not required, however we do recommend it as only pre-paid funerals are inflation-protected. All fees paid in advance will be placed into a trust or annuity registered in your name until after your death and the services have been rendered by Oliver’s. If for some reason it is required, at your request all fees can be withdrawn along with interest and returned to you. Alternatively, we can transfer the plan to another funeral home.

I’m only 52 - Should I Pre-Plan my Funeral?
Everyone should consider pre-planning, regardless of their age. Nothing is ever guaranteed, life most of all. The type of people who pre-plan will vary, from the retired couple to the young married couple, to the single person with no family connections, to someone responsible for the care of another.

How is a funeral Pre-Planned?
You can start the process right now by simply completing Oliver’s online pre-planning form, or you can contact me to set up an appointment either in the comfort of your own home or at one of our office locations. We will discuss funeral type, burial, cremation, columbarium, music, speakers, tributes, flowers - everything necessary to create a funeral that reflects you and will comfort your family.
