Pre-Planning

Pre-Planning

Pre-planning your funeral and memorial ensures that you have a voice in the final arrangements. It also eases the burden for your family of making difficult decisions during a time of mourning and grief. Our compassionate and experienced team can guide you through each step of the pre-planning process to ensure that your wishes are understood. There are two options when considering pre-planning:

Pre-Need Funeral Arrangements- This option allows you to clarify your wishes for cremation or burial, the type of service, specific religious, cultural, or family traditions you wish to include, and more. This arrangement document can be held in safekeeping with the team at Prairie Rose Cremations & Funeral Services, your family or a trusted friend, or your attorney. 

Pre-Paid Funeral Contract- This option allows you to pre-select cremation or burial, type of memorial service, casket or cremation urn, burial location, and more. Prairie Rose has partnered with TruStage of Canada to guarantee pricing at the time of the contract and coverage when you need. If you move to another province your initial funds plus interest can be transferred to any funeral home in North America. There is no guarantee when transferring your policy to another funeral provider that the costs will remain the same.

Give yourself and your family the peace of mind that comes with pre-planning.

Pre-Planning FAQs

You do not. Pre-planning can simply be a way to specify your final wishes. 

A pre-planning consultation with Prairie Rose is free of charge and has no obligation. We will guide you through the process of pre-planning to ensure you have the opportunity to make every decision and selection that is important to you. We will hold your pre-planning documentation in safekeeping until needed.

If you wish to choose a specific urn for cremated remains, you would need to buy it and store it until it is needed. We are unable to hold purchased urns on site. We cannot guarantee any merchandise selected during the pre-preplanning stage as products and supply change over the years. If there is a specific urn you like you are welcome to purchase from us at the time of pre-planning.
