Planning Ahead

Both my husband and I played in Epping Forest as children so we feel we are going home. We loved the whole experience and have purchased the plot in advance – no funeral yet!

Making sense of planning ahead

It can be difficult to make decisions when you’ve lost someone close to you but by planning ahead and choosing your plot now, you can take the stress and strain away from your family. You’ll give them peace of mind that this has been taken care of, so they can focus on coming to terms with their loss and taking the time to grieve properly.

Planning ahead can significantly reduce the cost of your funeral. No insurance policy covers everything and with inflation rising each year, paying for your plot now will save money in the long run. Of course, it also means your family will be free from having to make that decision when the time comes.

Purchasing a plot

If you are caring for a loved one who is dying, you might also want to consider purchasing a plot in advance. If the conversation can be had about the final wishes then that is a good place to start. In that respect planning ahead can be a good idea, as it’s more difficult to make decisions when you are already grieving someone’s death. If it’s too difficult to have the conversation face to face there are on-line funeral wishes websites.

Furthermore and uniquely, with the purchase of a plot in any of our GreenAcres Parks (whether for a Full Burial or an Ash Interment), you can actually choose the very place you want to be buried from the plots available, unlike many other cemeteries. By purchasing in advance as many do already, you can take the financial burden away from your family when the time comes.
