A wake is a social gathering that takes place either before or after a funeral.
Funeral plans are prepaid service agreements where the money required is invested in a secure Trust Fund until the time it’s needed. A funeral plan guarantees to cover the services that were listed at the time the plan was taken out. With a funeral plan there’s no need for any medicals assessments or health and lifestyle questionnaires.
Life insurance is a type of insurance that pays out an agreed cash sum should you pass away while the policy is valid. A life insurance policy is typically made over many years for larger amounts, designed to help pay for bills and any outstanding debts held by the deceased at the time of death.
If you’ve lost your plan documents, all you need to do is get back in touch with us and we can arrange for replacements to be sent out to you.
On average it takes around two hours to cremate a body, but it can sometimes be longer or shorter in certain circumstances.
There can occasionally be restrictions on scattering ashes in certain locations. If you’ve got a specific location in mind, it’s best to speak to someone associated with that destination before making your decision.
