Ensuring Your Burial and Cremation Needs Are Fulfilled There are quite a few things to keep in mind when pre-planning your basic needs. When making pre-arrangements, follow these simple steps. Consider options The first step is to spend some time thinking about what your wishes are. Do you want to have a basic burial or cremation? If you opt for a burial, you’ll have to make arrangements for a cemetery plot or a place in a mausoleum. If you choose cremation, you’ll have to choose a cremation casket and decide what should be done with your cremated remains. Would you prefer they be given to your friends or family in an urn, or be scattered, or maybe buried?
Record and communicate your wishes Keeping your wishes documented on paper or electronically is the best way to make certain they’ll be followed. Make sure to designate someone to oversee your wishes, and provide them with details of any pre-arrangements you’ve made. Furthermore, having such a record will make it easier for your family and friends to act on your behalf. You might also choose to keep a list of people who should be notified.
Address financial matters If you choose, you can pre-pay. This can help alleviate the burden on your friends and family and protect them from an increase in cost due to inflation. With a good payment plan, you can make sure all the costs are covered in a manner convenient to yourself.
