You may have precise wishes for how you want your final services carried out. However, you also fear that you cannot entrust these plans to your friends or relatives. You worry that they will change the plans or leave out details that are important to you.
Instead of simply relying on your survivors to carry out your wishes after you are gone, you can put them in writing while you are still healthy and cognizant. You can take advantage of what pre-planning your own funeral services can offer to you.
Choosing Your Final Resting Place
When you plan out your own funeral services, you can choose the place where you would like to be laid to rest. If you allow your loved ones to choose your final resting place for you, you could be placed in a cemetery that is out of the way or in a location where you would not have chosen.
Instead, you can choose the cemetery from which to buy a burial place as part of your funeral services. The funeral home where you lay out your plans can contact the cemetery on your behalf. It can then relay information about available plots and the prices for them so you can choose and pay for your final resting place accordingly.
Buying Your Own Headstone
You also can choose a headstone to mark your final resting place as part of your funeral services. The funeral home may contract with monument businesses. You can have the price for the headstone incorporated with the price that you pay ahead of time for your funeral services.
You can also choose what you want your grave marker to say and what kind of design that you want it to have. You can avoid entrusting these specific details to your loved ones.
Finally, you can choose the prayers, music and casket that you want to use for your funeral services. Your loved ones may not know about your preferences for these details. You can ensure that the prayers and music align with your religious preferences and the casket fits within the price you want to pay for your funeral services.
You can plan ahead and pay for your funeral services now. You can choose the cemetery in which you want to be laid to rest. You can also buy your own headstone and also stipulate details like prayers, music and your casket.
