Why Plan Ahead

There’s a lot that goes into planning a funeral, but making those arrangements beforehand gives you time to consider all of your options and make sure that you’re covering all of the necessary details. Still feeling unsure? Here are some of the most important reasons why planning ahead may be the best option.

It's Easy

Fill out a form or meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan, at any stage in their life, and you always can make changes if you wish.



You Decide

Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. Including your family in the planning process can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect your desires.



Relieve Your Family’s Burden

Preplanning relieves your family of that burden and gives them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance.



You Can Prepay

Prepayment provides peace of mind for your family and generally means that you save money by being protected from inflation and price changes. Pre-funding funeral expenses in Maine are subject to The Maine Uniform Trust Code, 18-B MRSA §101 et seq., 32 MRSA §1401 and Chapter 16 of the rules of the State Board of Funeral Service.) This law requires funds to be deposited into a trust account where it remains until needed. For more information, please click here.
