Help and Advice

Funerals can seem like a complicated affair, and there is a lot to know. That's why we created this help section to make things just a little easier.

We've provided some information about what to expect from each step of the funeral arrangements, from how to plan ahead or what to do when someone passes away, to what you should expect before, during and after a funeral service.

Planning Ahead

Planning a funeral when a loved one dies can be a challenging task, but did you know that a funeral can be planned and paid for ahead of time?

A prepaid funeral is a sensible alternative to funeral insurance or funeral bonds, and could save you money - you pay today's price and ensure the service will be tailored to your needs, wishes and budget.

When Someone Passes

When someone has passed away and if you've never arranged a funeral before, you might not know what you will need to do when a death has occurred.

You'll find more information about what to do when a death occurs, what to expect when meeting your funeral director, the Death Certificate and why funerals matter in this section.

Before the Service

There is usually some time between making the initial funeral arrangements with your funeral director, and the time of the actual funeral service.

There are a number of things you may wish to consider before the funeral service, such as the choice of day and time, whether you will have a viewing and if you are writing a eulogy.

Learn more

After the Service

Once the funeral service is over, it is time to consider the type of memorial you would like for your loved one.

Your options will depend on whether it was a burial or cremation service.

We also provide information about scattering ashes and resources for coping with grief.
