According to the International Cemetery Cremation Funeral Directors Association (ICCFA), the average cost of a funeral doubles every ten years, which places additional financial stress on families that may already be struggling.
At Williamsburg Memorial Park, we can help alleviate the stress associated with rising costs by helping you plan NOW. One of our main goals is to make sure your family isn’t sitting across the table from us several years from now and being told that the funeral you planned is much more expensive than you expected.
In fact, one of the benefits of pre-planning is that the funeral you pay for today, will be secured and locked in for the future—regardless of price increases. This will alleviate a lot of the financial stress associated with a funeral.
Why is pre-planning important?
Your family and friends should be able to mourn and celebrate your life without added stress. By addressing your future needs now, you’ll feel a sense of peace knowing that you won’t cause additional heartache or financial burden. Plus, your loved ones won’t emotionally overspend and your funeral will be exactly what you want!
Better yet, by pre-planning now, you’ll get a better lot location and you can save space for other family members. Even if you end up moving out of the area, any purchase you make can be transferred to another participating property through the ICCFA Credit Exchange Plan.
