Prepay a funeral


Prepaying your funeral allows you to lock in your funeral at today’s prices, with no future payments required.

Much like making a will or taking out life insurance, prepaying your funeral takes care of the future. It allows you to personalise your funeral and to make sure your exact wishes are carried out. A prepaid funeral relieves your family or friends of the financial and emotional burden of having to organise the service themselves in their time of grief.

Our experienced staff at W.D. Rose Funerals and Giannarelli Funerals can help advise you on the best options for your needs and budget. The cost of a prepaid funeral will vary depending on the inclusions. Once paid in full there is no more to pay unless additional inclusions are incurred.

Prearranging Your Funeral vs Prepaying

Prearranging the funeral is an easy option that enables you to set out your precise wishes regarding your funeral service. We can discuss your wishes in detail and make a permanent record for future reference. A copy of this form will be kept on file by us. You should also consider sharing it with your family, so you can rest assured that you have left clear instructions to ease the burden and pressure on those left behind at the time of your passing. 

While prearranging your funeral ensures your wishes can be carried out, prepayment can relieve the financial burden on your family. We offer a guaranteed price for prepaid funerals. This protects your family from any future price increases that may occur on the funeral arrangements you have selected.

You can prepay for your funeral upfront or in convenient instalments over a three year period. Once your contract is paid in full, Guardian Plan is responsible for the delivery of your selected funeral arrangements. Guardian Plan is a subsidiary of InvoCare Limited ABN 42 096 437 393, a listed Australian public company and Australia's largest provider of funeral services. Also, the money you pay into the plan will not affect your pension as it is not subject to income or assets testing.

If you would like an obligation-free chat to discuss any of these options simply call us and a representative will talk you through the options and costs.
