Planning Ahead

McKiernan & Sons offer an excellent facility for those wanting to pre-arrange their funeral or make pre-paid funeral plans.

Prepaid Funeral Plans

Everyone has a different idea about the kind of funeral arrangements they would like, with pre-planning, you can be sure your wishes are granted. The greatest value of pre-planning a funeral, is you are given the opportunity to sit down, consider the options on offer and decide on the best suited to your needs.

People choose to take a prepaid funeral plan for some of the following reasons:

  • To ensure the details for the funeral are in place
  • To ensure adequate funds are in place to cover the cost
  • To reduce the value of savings while alive to enable qualification for state benefits
  • Simply to 'get one's house in order'
  • Take the burden away from family members at difficult and stressful time

Pre - arrangement

This gives the client an opportunity to discuss and detail their wishes without any payment. These records will be kept on file and the client and next of kin will be provided with a copy. All payments would be made in the future, after the funeral, by your family or from your estate in the usual way.

This gives the client peace of mind that their wishes will be carried out, it can also be helpful and often therapeutic if your family and friends can follow your wishes after death.

We offer Perfect Choice Funeral Plans, which are sponsored by the NAFD and underwritten by Ecclesiastical Life.  This ensures all funds are properly and legally protected and that a Code of Practice is maintained.
