This article explores the benefits of pre-planning your funeral at McGuiness Funerals and how it can provide peace of mind for both you and your family.

Why Pre-Plan Your Funeral?

Pre-planning your funeral is a proactive approach that many find comforting. It allows you to make all the important decisions about how you wish to be remembered, from the type of ceremony to the final resting place. At McGuiness Funerals, we facilitate these decisions with compassion and professionalism, ensuring that every aspect reflects your personal values and life story.

At McGuiness Funeral Home we also provide for those who wish to detail their funeral requirements prior to the death. There has been an increasing trend for people to pre-arrange funerals to ensure their wishes are met and to ease their family’s burden in their time of loss. There is also provision to set aside funds to meet the costs of a funeral through the use of a funeral bond. Please do not hesitate to contact the team at McGuiness Funeral Home who can talk you through this option. Download our pre planning guide here.
