Preplanning

  The responsibility of arranging a funeral usually falls to a single survivor who may have little or no warning, and is therefore totally unprepared for the many decisions that must be made. Added stress can occur when the death has been unexpected, and our experience is that surviving members have to make over one hundred decisions in the first twelve hours following a death.

    Successfully handling these decisions requires careful thought, and they are best made with the counsel of an understanding professional schooled in the art of old-fashioned service. Planning ahead has helped countless survivors over the years, and making your wishes known ahead of time is one of the kindest gifts one can bestow upon family and friends as they begin the healing process.

    When prearranging, one should always bear in mind the importance of allowing flexibility for those who remain. Preplanning a funeral is no different than making a will or obtaining insurance - it begins with the realization that it is prudent to plan for the future and make important decisions in a calm, unhurried, and informed manner.

   The best time for preplanning is now. One of the major advantages of prearranging a funeral is confirming funeral costs in advance. This cost-saving measure guarantees both survivors and estate freedom from financial worry. Click here to fill out our Funeral Preference Form, which helps assist survivors at the time of death. The information you provide within the form is general information that is usually required.

ADVANTAGES OF PREPAYMENT

    The Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Preplanning Centre provides you with the opportunity to prepay for funeral services over a convenient length of time (with no interest charges) for one full year. An ever-increasing number of our client families are selecting our preplanning options due to the fact that once a funeral is prepaid and unchanged, there are no further financial obligations for you, your survivors, or estate.

    For everyone who preplans, Humphrey Funeral Home - A.W. Miles Chapel Ltd. supplies a free personalized card similar to a credit card which lists allergies, OHIP Number, SIN Number, a designated person to notify, and a 24-hour emergency telephone number one can call collect in a time of need.

NON-GUARANTEED PREARRANGEMENT

(No prepayment required)

   All selected services are placed on file, and quoted prices are honoured for the 30-day period following the date of the prearrangement conference (there will be no guarantee with respect to the cost of any cash disbursements). Upon completion of the 30 day period, the current market price will prevail. If prepayment is not made prior to the time of death, the estate will be responsible for the cost of selected services.
