Prepaying a Funeral


There are many decisions which need to be made, and a lot of information which is required, when someone dies. Arranging a prepaid funeral means most of the decisions and information are already recorded, providing both emotional and financial peace of mind for you and your family.

Some of the main benefits to you arranging a prepaid funeral with Guardian Plan are:

  • You will feel better knowing that your affairs are in order.
  • It is a great relief to know that your wishes will be carried out. It allows you to consider the alternatives and make decisions at your leisure, without the pressure of an imminent funeral.
  • It enables you to arrange your own funeral details and pay for tomorrow’s chosen funeral at today’s prices.
  • Flexibility of payment. You may choose to pay the full price now or by installments, secure in the knowledge that Guardian Plan will ensure that the funeral is professionally carried out.
  • Travel Protection Plan available.

We also offer three forms, which are excerpts from our "Personal Information Guide". These forms can be used to begin the process of pre-arranging a funeral.
