A Pre-Arranged Funeral

Most people find it difficult to think about their own funeral. In spite of this, more and more people are realising the benefits of planning in advance. Those who choose to pre-plan understand how helpful it will be for a grieving family to know the funeral wishes of their loved one. A prearranged funeral service is when the details of the service are arranged prior to the time of a loved one’s death, but payment is deferred until the time of service.

This is often helpful when a family member is very elderly or suffering from a terminal illness. Great Lakes Funerals offer this service, to give families peace of mind in knowing that all the details have been arranged.

Funeral Bonds

A funeral bond is an investment which enables you to put aside funds to meet future funeral expenses. An investment in a funeral bond is similar to a trust account which accrues bonuses and becomes payable at the time of death. The benefits can only be used to meet your funeral expenses. A funeral bond is an investment towards the cost of a funeral. 

Should final costs be either more or less than the investment, we either issue an account or a refund to the estate for the balance. Great Lakes Funerals can help to arrange a Bond investment plan.
