5 Common Misconceptions About Pre-Planning Your Funeral

Published: April 18, 2022

Preplanning a funeral service is no longer a novel concept, and many people will have heard of it. However, there is some apprehension about addressing it and what it entails.

Preplanning Myths

At Affordable Funeral & Cremation, we think it is critical for our clients to have thorough information about our services. We will cover five common myths regarding preplanning your funeral in this blog.

1. Preparing in advance is not effortless for your family

This is a widespread misunderstanding that is far from the truth. Naturally, your family will detest the prospect of your death. When you discuss your desire with them and explain the purpose of preplanning your funeral, they will understand it is not as awful as it seems.

2. Preplanning is a time-consuming process

Preplanning a funeral is quite a straightforward process. You need to contact a funeral home of your preference, explain your requirements and desires to the funeral director, and solicit their advice. Understand the services they provide and choose the ones you require.

3. Preplanning might be costly

When someone dies, their family is responsible for all funeral arrangements, which might be financially unmanageable for some. On the contrary, you pre-pay for everything and include it in the contract when you preplan. This reduces the burden of scheduling the service and makes it more affordable for your family.

4. The expense of preplanning may grow in the future

This is inaccurate; once a contract is signed, the price is fixed and is unaffected by anything, including inflation.

5. When you preplan, your service options are limited

The service you might select is identical to those that the home would provide if you were organizing a memorial ceremony for a deceased loved one.
