Funeral planning can be challenging, and there are times when family members cannot make financial arrangements for the funeral and related services. Depending on which services you want, sometimes, the overall cost may be well above what you anticipated. At Arbutus Funeral Service, we have seen that many people find ways to fund these services, and here we look at some of them:

Ways To Fund Funeral Services

We understand the stress that people go through when a family member passes, and the financial strain can become challenging to deal with at such times. These are some funding methods that can prove beneficial:

  • Preplanning – Many individuals are now considering preplanning their funeral. When you preplan, you pay for your funeral while you are alive. You can choose all the services you need, including optional ones, and create a Funeral package with the help of a funeral director. Preplanning has many benefits; your family doesn't need to deal with the funeral costs after your death. Another aspect is that the price is locked in when you sign the contract, and it will not increase regardless of inflation levels.
  • Ask For Assistance From Your Family And Friends- This is another way of getting funding for a funeral service. You can request friends or relatives for a contribution or loan. The financial aspect can become easier for you to handle when working on a modest budget for the funeral service.
  • Government-Sponsored Programs- Government-funded programs are another option to consider because these are built specifically for funeral finance assistance.
  • Crowdfunding- In this method, you can get contributions from various individuals for the funeral service you are organizing. Advertise your requirement via social media or crowdfunding websites and use the donations to arrange your loved one's funeral.

If you have any questions about organizing a funeral or even want to book a funeral service or plan scattering ashes at sea service, contact us or give us a call at (604) 888-9895. We at Arbutus Funeral Service will be happy to help.
