You have to admit that preparing for your funeral or that of other family members can be ominous and makes the idea of death real. True, everyone dies, but no one wants to think of their loved ones dying. But death is a fact of life, so you might as well prepare for it by making arrangements with Perth funerals. Whether you want to be cremated or buried the traditional way, preparing for such an eventuality will prove advantageous.
How funerals will cost you
In Australia, funerals can cost anywhere from $4,000 to around $15,000, depending on how simple or elaborate it is. Quite expensive, right? It’s almost ironic that you still need to spend money when you’re already dead.
But the reason that the cost is high is that you’re not only paying for your coffin or burial/cremation, but you also need to pay for the funeral director fees, cemetery plot, death certificate, permits, transport, flowers, the wake, newspaper notices, and other expenses.
Yes, death is not cheap. Not at all.
So imagine how dire the situation is if surviving family members don’t have the amount necessary to pay for your funeral. They’re likely to resort to taking out a loan or borrowing money from friends. But if you make arrangements with providers of Perth WA funerals, you could spare them the hassle and the headache. How?

Choose Pre-Paid Funerals
Nothing says better than preparing for your death than prepaid funerals, which basically means buying and paying for your funeral in advance. The best Perth funerals, such as Perth Cremations, offer this particular package with no price increase. That is, if you buy now, the same price applies even with inflation.
But an even bigger reason that many people choose prepaid with Perth funerals is the benefits that come with it. With your funeral already arranged and fully paid:
- You spare your family from the financial and emotional burden of organising your funeral, when all they want to do is grieve for their loss. Find funerals in WA that offer impeccable service, and family members may not have to lift a finger.
- You don’t need to pay more even when prices have increased unless there are additional arrangements. The funeral bonds will also continue accruing interest as the years go by, providing you and the funeral director financial protection against inflation.
- You have peace of mind knowing that your funeral will be exactly how you want it to be. It won’t be a case of you being buried because cremation is off the budget or vice versa. If you want lots of flowers during your funeral, you can make advanced arrangements for them too. No need to skimp on them when the time comes.
What is even better is that payment is spread out over a specific period, which will be a lot cheaper than if you were to pay $4,000 upfront, for example. Imagine if that amount is spread over a 5-year period. There’s no question that you can afford it.
