Funeral pre-arrangement wishes and pre-paid plans are a sensible option for anyone. They provide financial peace of mind for your loved ones and also give you the chance to plan a service that has been tailor-made for you.
Why You Should Consider Them
At a time of bereavement, your loved ones can be under considerable emotional stress, and it makes sense to avoid extra worry for them. Pre-arrangement ensures that your exact funeral wishes are carried out and that the costs of doing so are already covered, relieving your family and friends of the financial stress.
What Is Involved
When you pre-plan a funeral with us, we will ask for information on all elements that are important to you. These elements can include details about music, the route to the ceremony, hymns, readings, dress, venue, the wake and more. No matter how simple or complicated your ideas are, we have the experience and expertise needed to ensure each and every last wish is fulfilled.
The cost of the funeral will be the price applicable and estimated at the time you enter into the plan. The professional fee will be guaranteed at that price, subject to the trust’s rules and guidelines. After you have purchased your pre-paid funeral plan, we will provide you with all the relevant paperwork, which will include a record of the plan and all instructions. We will also keep a copy of the document. The plan is needed to have everything ready when the time comes.
Entering into a pre-paid plan will also mean protecting your family from rising funeral costs and will remove from your loved ones the burden of arranging the ceremony. Costs can vary depending on the nature of your funeral and what you wish to include in your ceremony.
Local Plans for Local People
Our pre-paid funeral plans differ from many other schemes in that local trustees are involved rather than large funeral-plan providers. The funds are invested and managed by St. James’s Place plc, which holds and takes care of them until they are needed. The local trustees oversee the process, ensuring individuals’ wishes are met in both a practical and a financial sense. Our funeral plans are completely independent to our private, family-run company. You are more than welcome to visit our premises to find out more about what to expect when you pre-plan a funeral with Jukes Funeral Services.
Our funeral-wishes pack is available free of charge, and it gives you the valuable opportunity to record your own funeral requests. Once this has been given to us, we will be able to pass the information on to your family when the time of need comes. These instructions can be taken in a private consultation with one of our highly experienced funeral arrangers, who will then file them away safely and securely and give you your own copy to keep. Documenting your funeral wishes enables you to ensure your life is celebrated the way you want it to be. You can even decide whom you wish to carry out specific readings, and you can leave room for your loved ones to play a role in deciding some elements if desired.
We offer a range of services for those wishing to take control of their own funerals, including our bespoke funeral-payment plans, our funeral-wishes service and advice on selecting the right plan for you. You are welcome to get in touch with us anytime if you require more information about our pre-paid plans and funeral wishes, so please don’t hesitate to speak to one of our funeral directors.
