Planning Ahead

Prepaid Funerals Melbourne

Planning a prepaid funeral is something most people will not do in their day to day life! We plan for future events and put money aside for things like holidays, retirement and other special occasions.

Arranging your funeral in advance means that your personal wishes are carried out and at a fixed price. This gives you peace of mind, relieving your family and friends of making stressful decisions at a time of upset and confusion. You can organise as much or as little detail of the service that you wish. We are more than happy to visit you in your home and chat over coffee or meet with us at our office.

Benefits of a prepaid funeral

  • Prepaid funerals maintain a fixed price throughout the time of the prepaid plan
  • Prepaid funerals in Melbourne allows you to choose and design your own funeral.
  • Prepaid funerals give you peace of mind knowing that your funeral wishes will be carried out
  • You choose your own individual style of funeral, carrying out any special wishes you may desire.
  • Relieve your family of the responsibility of planning, managing, and most of all, finding the money to pay for a funeral at a time of upset.
  • The price of your pre paid funeral in Melbourne is fixed at today’s prices. There is nothing more to pay ever.
  • Your investment for your funeral will be held independently of the Funeral Director and invested in a capital guaranteed funeral benefit fund of a Friendly Society.
  • A prepaid funeral is not viewed as part of your personal assets. It is also exempt from the Centrelink and Department of Veteran Affairs Income and Assets Test. Therefore, the investment may improve your pension entitlements.
  • May be held in single or joint names
  • Your money is safe and secure in an Australian reliable fund.

My stepdad recently passed away and such a sad time of our lives, the last thing we wanted to worry about was his funeral. But Sheree and the staff at Templeton Family Funerals was so very helpful, they stepped in straight away and helped me with everything. They were very supportive and was just so understanding with our needs it just made it easier to grieve than have to worry about other things. Thank you Sheree for your services and of course your care and your compassion.

I would like to thank Templetons Family Funerals for the sensitive and efficient manner in which they have helped me after the passing of an elderly family member. All the staff we dealt with were polite and helpful. At each stage I was guided as to the required paperwork to be filled out, and help was offered whenever it was needed. I could not have asked for a more compassionate, sensitive team during a difficult period. Thank you wonderful ladies at Templetons.

Firstly I would like to thank Sheree for being exceptionally professional, supportive and comforting when I needed the service organised for my dearest and beloved mum. Her words were well chosen, sincere and full of sympathy. Thank you for helping me in the most difficult moments of my life. I would also like to thank other staff and Lynne who I spoke with over the phone. Templeton funerals made me feel grateful for taking care of my mum. Thank you

Sheree from Templeton Family Funerals has been such a great support for me during such a difficult time. She was caring, supportive, empathetic and very prompt. They took great care of my dad and made the process so much easier for me. He was in good hands and I am so grateful for their support and care. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a Funeral Director to look after your loved ones. Thank you again Sheree and the team at Templeton Family Funerals.
