It's the greatest gift you can give your loved ones.

Room PhotoMaking unexpected funeral arrangements for a loved one can add further emotional strain during an already overwhelming situation. Dennett, Craig & Pate offers your family the option of making preparations well in advance. The act of pre-planning gives your family peace of mind and protection from rising costs.

Room PhotoWhy Pre-Plan Funeral Services? No one likes to think about death, let alone plan for it. In many families, discussing one's mortality is an extremely uncomfortable topic. But it is a topic that should be discussed and planned for well in advance as a loving, final reminder that you took care of your family.

Pre-planning can give you peace of mind because you know that your arrangements are ready and won't put a financial burden on your family. By pre-planning your funeral, you can:

  • Make your wishes known
  • Control the cost of your funeral and protect from inflation
  • Ensure that personal records are organized and easy for your survivors to locate
  • Protect your insurance so that it provides for your survivors and not for funeral expenses
  • Provide protection in case the need arises before it is expected

Please see our Pre-Planning/At-Need forms below:  

  •  Family Worksheet (this worksheet will let you know the type of information that will ultimately be required. If you don't have all the information now, this will give you time to find the missing information)
  • Survivor's Checklist (which will give you a great deal of information about the paperwork and notifications involved following a death)
  • Cremation Authorization
