Where do you begin?

Funeral planning is a difficult process involving emotional stress, financial decision making and uncertainty. Without some guidance, the options and information surrounding funerals and arrangement planning can seem overwhelming at an already complicated time.

At FuneralPlanning101, we offer a good place to start when faced with the task of arranging a funeral. We take you through the first stages of funeral planning from finding a funeral home right through to burial decisions and grief recovery support.
Because FuneralPlanning101 is independent of the funeral industry, the information we offer is given with your interests at heart, and with the goal of helping you to make the personal and financial choices that leave you with peace of mind.

A loved one has been diagnosed as terminally ill
