Both my husband and I played in Epping Forest as children so we feel we are going home. We loved the whole experience and have purchased the plot in advance – no funeral yet!
Making sense of planning ahead
It can be difficult to make decisions when you’ve lost someone close to you but by planning ahead and choosing your plot now, you can take the stress and strain away from your family. You’ll give them peace of mind that this has been taken care of, so they can focus on coming to terms with their loss and taking the time to grieve properly.
Planning ahead can significantly reduce the cost of your funeral. No insurance policy covers everything and with inflation rising each year, paying for your plot now will save money in the long run. Of course, it also means your family will be free from having to make that decision when the time comes.
Purchasing a plot
If you are caring for a loved one who is dying, you might also want to consider purchasing a plot in advance. If the conversation can be had about the final wishes then that is a good place to start. In that respect planning ahead can be a good idea, as it’s more difficult to make decisions when you are already grieving someone’s death. If it’s too difficult to have the conversation face to face there are on-line funeral wishes websites.
When you buy a burial plot at one of our parks in advance you will also be future proofing your burial costs as the price you buy at today will not change regardless of how many years in advance you buy. To make it even easier you can pay in instalments spread over 12 to 36 months. The only additional charge is the admin fee to set up and run the instalments and you don’t pay interest.
Furthermore and uniquely with the purchase of a plot in any of our GreenAcres Parks (whether for a Full Burial or an Ash Interment), you can actually choose the very place you want to be buried unlike many other cemeteries and by paying in advance as many do already you can take the financial burden from your family when the time comes.
At the time of purchasing a burial plot, you may choose to include the services of a Funeral Director. To bring you this service, our parks have partnered with funeral plan providers to offer you an affordable plan, which ensures:
- you plan a day that celebrates your life – so that you are remembered in the way you want to be
- you take the worry away and help your loved ones to avoid difficult decisions at a stressful time
- you remove the financial burden – your plan will control the costs so no costly funeral bills for your loved ones
