Personalising Your Prepaid Funeral Plans

Personalising Your Prepaid Funeral Plans

Planning your own funeral is a confronting topic that we would all rather avoid. Dealing with the concept of death, let alone our own can be disconcerting and unnatural. While putting plans in place is certainly beneficial, we do understand that the process can be hard to deal with. At Lady Anne Funerals we will assist you with personalising your prepaid funeral plans in a sensitive and compassionate manner.

It’s important to us that the ceremony that celebrates your life reflects you personally and we are dedicated to ensuring your wishes are met. There are a number of reasons to personalise your funeral and rather than being a morbid topic we believe it’s a way to make your final goodbye distinctively you.

 

Protect your family from added distress during a difficult time

Many people organise their prepaid funeral to reduce the emotional stress felt by their family at the time of their passing. By choosing what will be included in the ceremony as well as the venue, flowers and burial arrangements you can make the funeral a memorial to them of all the things you are and will be for them even in your passing.

The service will offer your loved ones peace of mind that the ceremony is exactly the way you would have wanted it because you have put it together yourself. It will be a ceremony that truly reflects you and can even be seen by your loved ones as your personalised, final goodbye.

 

Ensure your exact wishes are carried out

When you make decisions for your prepaid funeral with Lady Anne Funerals we will ensure that all of your specific wishes are carried out. Many of our clients want to be certain that their family feels loved during their final moments saying good bye and they also want their funeral to be a celebration of life rather than a sad time. By making decisions about music, floral arrangements, decorations for the venue and the contents of the ceremony you can ensure that the funeral reflects you and your life before you are laid to rest.

 Personalise your prepaid funeral in a way that reflects who you are, from a favourite song to specific photos of you and your loved ones. It’s those little things you can decide on in advance to make your funeral a special service.

 

Financially, it makes sense

By making all of your choices now and prepaying the arrangements you can fix the price of your funeral at today's costs (subject to specific contractual terms). The money you pay is held by a private entity meaning that your prepaid arrangements are safe and will be honoured as per the contractual agreement that you organise with our ladies at Lady Anne Funerals.

Any money paid into the your prepaid funeral plan is not subject to the income or assets test for the age pension (according to current legislation). This means that by personalising your prepaid funeral you can make sure that money is put away and not included in your assets.

Let's Talk

Some of the families we've helped

“I just wanted to send you our sincerest thanks for everything you and your incredible team did for us in making the most perfect day, celebration and farewell of our beautiful Harper.

I have given a lot of thought to your business and the industry and I think it is perhaps the most important business for families to get it right when it comes to planning a funeral which may be sudden or may be a long time in the making. Either way, when one is faced with the unfortunate situation of needing to arrange a funeral, only then do you realise the importance of getting it right.

We experienced first hand the polar opposites the industry offers. It is not just about the cars, the booklets, the music and all the things that make up the day - its about the service, the care and most importantly it’s about the people.

From our very first conversation we could sense your genuine care to our situation and your attention to detail was obvious - this was very different to the previous conversations we had with others we had been referred to. Those other companies wanted to commence meetings with the paperwork side of things upfront which is a very confronting thing to do just days after losing your loved one - and when one of the others that I am referencing couldn’t even refernece our daughters name as our meeting started - we were horrified of how poor the service of care could be.

This is where you and your team shine. After feeling very lost in our search to secure the perfect funeral director to create the perfect day, my wife all of a sudden recalled you standing out the front of your office each morning watering the surrounding gardens to ensure a beautiful front of house. Well, I can assure you, it is not just the front of house that is beautiful - its the entire package that is beautiful.

Your manner, your direction and your expertise is evident from the get go. Nothing is too hard for you or your amazing team. The personal care made us feel like we were the only funeral you were working with at the time, and that’s exactly how it should be.

The finer detail, such as driving past our house so our daughter could go past our house one last time, then leaving the most beautiful flowers on our doorstep, to bumping into us at the Church because you were just doing your own research to make sure the day was seamless. This combined with your recommendations from every aspect as everything was very foreign to us, you were able to guide us to achieve the most beautiful farewell.

The day itself was simply perfect. Not once did we have a concern. The car was shining, your team dressed beautifully, cold water provided for us, directions for our guests, directions for us. Everyone commented on how amazing the day was and how incredibly your team were. Seamless is the only word I can use. It doesn’t stop here.

Your personal care and guidance then allowed us a more intimate farewell the following day (we are so grateful for for this recommendation and possibly would have missed this special day if you had suggested it was the best idea). Again, you and your team made us feel like you had nowhere else to be, and no one else to help. Just us. The setting was beautiful, the celebrant (that you arrange and recommend) is a delightful, your team make this day even more special than the last.

This is something we never want to go through again but there will be so many others, that like us, have no idea where to start to look for the right funeral director for their own special day. All I can say is that I hope that they appoint Lady Anne Funerals. We learnt a lot quickly and it is again a business many do not ever consider needing but without question one of the most important businesses to select the right person and the right team.

I welcome any of your future potential clients to contact me if they wish to discuss our experience with the amazing Lady Anne team. We thank you for giving our beautiful baby the most incredible farewell that was exactly how we imagined it, you just made it happen.”

Karen has supported my Mum and me through the most difficult week of our lives as we not only planned a funeral, but interred my Dad to his new home. I will be forever grateful to Karen for her ongoing support, guidance, kindness, empathy and friendship over the last week. Karen has now become part of our extended circle of close family friends.

Lady Anne Funerals has the compassion, understanding and empathy that many of the larger funeral homes do not possess. My aunts funeral was dignified and classy everything she deserved. I would highly recommend Lady Anne (and have) as they go above and beyond.

I am overwhelmed with the feedback on how beautiful it all was from all who attended. You and the other ladies were wonderful, looked so elegant, and made the day so very special for all who loved Paul.

Karen and her staff treated us with the utmost respect we could not have been in better hands during this difficult time. My mum had organised her funeral with a prepaid funeral plan which she had purchased from Karen almost ten years ago this also made this upsetting time much easier to deal with and she got all the things that she wished for.

On behalf of my family, I would like to thank Lady Anne Funerals for a beautiful service yesterday for my aunt Dot. All who attended commented on how lovely the service was & the professionalism of all the staff. Thanks again very much for helping making a sad day one of celebration of Dot’s life.
