Heritage Brady Funeral Directors offer caring, compassionate and dignified care to those who have entrusted us with their most precious possession... their loved ones.
We insure our homes and possessions in case of an untoward event. Pre-arranged Funeral planning is in a similar way, an assurance that our inevitable passing is planned for.
A pre-arranged funeral is planned in advance, personal details and funeral wishes are recorded by your chosen Funeral Director. When the death occurs, the family or person responsible for making the funeral arrangements will need to sign the prepared documents. in consultation with the Funeral Director you will need to set the time and day for the funeral service. The option of pre-payment is usually offered through the facilities of a funeral bond or through funeral insurance with one of our service providers.
Pre-arrangement of funerals is not a morbid decision, it is not wishing for death upon a family member but simply an assurance that your funeral arrangements are taken care of.
Heritage Brady Funeral Directors endorse a number of Funeral Benefit Plans. These plans are government approved and designed to safely invest monies set aside to pay for the funeral. The funds are totally secure and safe. They grow through interest and dividends paid overtime, keeping pace with the cost of the funeral, even though the costs may be affected by rising inflation. If you are in receipt of a means tested pension, current legislation allows for a major portion of the funeral bond to be exempt from consideration as an asset.
Having a pre-arranged funeral at today’s prices, you then by means of a lump sum or agreed time payment scheme, invest the value of the funeral. This planning leaves your family with little, if anything to pay when the funeral is needed. The funds will allow you to nominate the Funeral Director of your choice, to be the prime beneficiary of the plan you have bought, thus saving your family form administrative concern.
Across Australia today there are currently no Legal requirements for Funeral Service providers to be licensed. There is also no form of regulation in place regarding funeral care, standards for funeral home premises, associated facilities, equipment or professional staff training. So, how does one choose a Funeral Home that will reassure and provide peace of mind.
When a death occurs in your family, it is important to contact your preferred Funeral Director immediately, we can advise you of the correct procedures to follow. Most deaths will occur by natural causes, in hospitals, nursing homes, aged care facilities or at the family home. In most of these cases, a Medical Certificate of ‘Cause of Death’ will be issued by your attending doctor.
We believe our role as Funeral Directors is to facilitate the funeral to suit the needs of the bereaved. Each person is unique in personality, likes and dislikes, therefore no two funerals will be the same, nor should they be. It is a very special time and most important, that the ceremony be such that it centres around the life of the deceased and creates a positive and lasting memory for the family to treasure forever.
At Heritage Brady Funeral Directors we ensure this important moment is covered with the utmost respect and dignity. Since 1981 we have been privileged to serve our local community and walked this journey with you.
We appreciate this moment in your life and will always assist in every way possible.
