We often plan for different milestones in our lives such as weddings, careers and even retirement – planning for our final goodbye makes just as much sense. It seems that each year more and more Australians are planning their own celebration of life.

However, there are so many funeral products available today; it can be hard to know where to start. Funeral Consultants can be an excellent resource to better understanding the pros and cons for each of these products based on your personal situation.

Pre-paying or pre-arranging your funeral provides an opportunity to be remembered how you want; What type of funeral do you think your family will have for you?  Are there things you want said? Are there things you want to be remembered for? … planning ahead also allows your loved ones to focus on the memory of you, and not be thinking of the financial costs.

“It is important to find the best option suited to your individual needs. A funeral today can cost over $10,000 and the costs rise annually, so understanding the benefit of a pre-paid funeral and gaining the right information to make an informed choice can save money or prevent an expensive mistake” says Mrs Burchell.

Tuckers have a long and proud history of providing funeral care services to the Greater Geelong community. Many years ago a funeral would be held in the parlour of someone’s home and everyone attending the service wore black. Today, funerals can be a private or public event, bringing together a mixture of memories, colours and reflections to personalise the celebration of life.

“We understand each funeral is unique, and reflects an individual personality – A Funeral Plan should be the same. Talking about funerals helps people to make informed choices, every day we see how important these conversations are for families” says Mrs Burchell.
