Pre-paid & Pre-arranged Funerals


Planning your funeral is never an easy thing to do, but it can be comforting and reassuring to know that you have taken care of your arrangements. By taking some time now, you can provide both financial and practical help for your loved ones in the future.

At Garvin’s Funeral Service, we will lead you through the process of pre-arrangements, providing advice and guidance along the way.

You may choose to make financial provision for the arrangements in advance, or your plans can simply be held on file at the funeral home to be carried out when they are needed. Our pre-paid funeral plans are provided by Ecclesiastical Planning Services with every penny (excluding the initial management fee) held securely in a policy and ring-fenced for your funeral when the time comes. The funds cannot be used for anything other than your funeral.

Planning ahead lets you:

  • Pre-arrange all the details of your funeral and remove the worry for loved ones
  • Fix the funeral directors costs
  • Make a contribution towards third party costs
  • Make your wishes known in advance
  • Choose from a range of funeral services with flexible payment options (12, 24, 36, 48 or a 60 month instalment plan)
  • Personalise your plan to your specific budget requirements

Garvin's Funeral Service is proud to introduce an online option to allow you to arrange a pre-paid funeral plan for you or your loved one.

Please click here to visit the website of Ecclesiastical Planning Services, our funeral plan provider, for information on our set plans and to purchase online.

Each of the four online planning options can be tailored to suit your own specific requirements.

For more information or to arrange an appointment to discuss your funeral plans, please contact us and we can meet you in our office or in the comfort of your own home.
