Preplanning options

Preplanning is a matter of taking the time to think about – and record – your end-of-life desires. It’s a thoughtful gesture to those you love, and a way to let go of anxieties about the future. Once done, you can relax, knowing your plans are in the hands of reliable friends or family.

(Plan ahead, n.d.)

Reason's to choose preplanning options:

  • It lets your family know your wishes.
  • No guess work for your loved ones
  • Ensures the cost is covered
  • Locks in the cost of your funeral ahead of time


What you should do ahead of time

  • Write information you want in your obituary
  • Make a list of emergency contact
  • Decide if you want burial or cremation

Reason to choose Burial

The choice of burial gives a few options for families to choose from:

  • You can be interred (earth burial)
  • Can be entombed in a crypt within a mausoleum (above-ground burial)
  • Can be buried at sea

Some of the reasons for choosing burial

  • Religious views are being met
  • Burial is traditional
  • The idea of being burned is not an option
  • A monument can be erected

Reason to choose Cremation

The choice of cremation allows flexibility in funeral and memorial services. Families choose:

  • funeral rites prior to cremation
  • a memorial service following cremation
  • a cremation service at the time of cremation
  • direct cremation with no formal service at all.

Cremation allows scheduling of services at a time that works best for the family, even weeks following death when family gathers across long distances.

Following cremation, families choose to:

  • scatter cremation ashes
  • retain cremated remains in a cremation urn
  • select a spot for permanent interment
