Why Plan Ahead?

Pre-arranging your funeral provides peace of mind for you and your family. It allows you to leave clear instructions for your family on how you would like to be remembered and the style of farewell you would like.

We are happy to meet with you and guide you through pre- arranging your funeral.  This is a free service and you can record as much or as little as you would like. All details are recorded by us in the strictest confidence. No-obligation inquiries are welcome and advice is given at any time.

You can also                                                           

Help take the burden off your loved ones by taking your end-of-life decisions in advance, in a calm and thoughtful atmosphere.

We can help you achieve your wishes regardless of your budget.

FDANZ has developed a handy guide which makes it easy for us to give you an estimate.



Pre-paying for all or part of your funeral service helps to relieve your family and loved ones of the responsibility of the funeral expenses. Pre-paid funerals up to $10,000 are currently excluded from asset testing when assessing eligibility for a subsidy for long term residential care for the elderly.

The FDANZ Funeral Trust is a secure way to pre-pay for your funeral. This Trust has been established by FDANZ to assist anyone to make arrangements for their funeral, or the funeral of another person such as a family member.

The FDANZ Funeral Trust is not an insurance policy. No health checks or personal questions are needed. Anyone can pre-arrange or pre-pay for a funeral with an FDANZ Funeral Director through the FDANZ Funeral Trust. You do not have to pre-pay in a single payment. If it suits you better, you can arrange to pay in easy instalments, from $20 a fortnight.
