The arrangements

For many, dealing with a loved one’s passing can be a daunting prospect. If you are also the person responsible for making their funeral arrangements, knowing where to start to organise matters can be confusing at best. This can be a huge emotional and financial responsibility, especially if the deceased did not arrange a prepaid funeral.

To reduce the stress faced during this difficult time, Funeral Planner provides you with helpful articles to help shed light on why funerals matter, cost of arranging a funeral, ways to pay for a funeral, what funeral viewings are, and much more.

Today in Australia, there is no single definition of a funeral and no real rules telling you what can or can’t be done to honour the life of your loved one. The articles in this section will help make arranging a funeral and managing funeral costs easier by guiding you through the necessary steps.
