Planning A Funeral In Pontypool: What You Need To Know

Making funeral plans can be a stressful and emotional process. If the deceased did not pre-plan their funeral or their death was sudden, it can be an overwhelming experience to have to organise it afterwards. Often there is very little time between losing your loved one and the funeral date. As a result, you may be forced to make difficult, last minute decisions. Fortunately, at Arthur Peake Funeral Directors Pontypool, our staff are here to help.

Here are some of the things you need to know about planning a funeral.

The Cost Of Funeral Plans

Funerals can be quite costly. The exact price will depend on the type of service you choose and any extras you add-on. At such an emotional time, it’s easy to make decisions without weighing up the costs. We recommend establishing what your budget is first, then sticking to it. This prevents the financial strain from adding up and becoming unexpectedly high.

There are a few things you can keep in mind to lower the price of your funeral plans.

Funeral Director

Choosing the right funeral director can save you a lot of hassle. Prioritising somebody who has your best interests in mind should be top of your list when considering funeral plans.

Here at Arthur Peak Funeral Directors, we make sure there are no unnecessary costs involved with your arrangements. We focus on a compassionate service. A level of transparency and honesty regarding cost is a part of that.

Burial Or Cremation

A casket will be one of the larger expenses. This may be important to you or your loved one. If you choose to have a burial, the burial plot and fees can also be expensive.

If it suits the wishes of the deceased, a cremation may be more cost-effective. You’ll still have the opportunity to plan a full service and spend time with the departed before they are committed to the crematorium.

Funeral Plans

On some occasions, a direct cremation will be the best option. This is an unattended ceremony where the cremation takes place without a service. This doesn’t mean that you can’t plan your own service before or after the cremation, to celebrate their life in the way that you want.

Different Types Of Funeral Plans

The type of funeral you choose is completely down to the preference of the deceased, or their loved one. There are usually two different types of funerals plans to choose from, each having their own set of unique benefits based on yours or your loved one’s priorities.

An eco-funeral is a service that focuses on environmental impact. The plan is based around making sure each step of the process leaves as little trace as possible. For some of our clients, this is the most respectful way of celebrating their, or their loved one’s life. Features such as a lack of vehicles or a cardboard coffin often take priority with these types of funeral plans. Get in touch with us to learn more about eco funerals.

Traditional Funeral Services

A traditional funeral service is as you would expect, a service that follows traditions which have been passed down through the ages. This plan covers the collection and care of the deceased, a ceremony and a wake.
