Why Preplan

Planning your own funeral is less complicated than you might expect, and it relieves a tremendous burden from your loved ones. Thinking about the details of a burial or cremation service when you’re calm and clear-headed is a much different experience than your loved ones trying to guess what you’d have wanted while they’re caught in a haze of grief.


If you're still not sure whether preplanning is right for you, consider these advantages:



You Plan According to Your Values

Preplanning allows you to control the details and arrange for what matters to you. You can be as specific or open with your wishes as you want.

It’s a Gift to Your Loved Ones

When the time comes, your loved one just needs to call us, and we’ll handle everything according to what you have on file. Planning ahead leaves your loved ones free to focus on taking care of each other.

It Can Be More Affordable

Preplanning with a funeral home allows you to lock in pricing, protecting your family members and loved ones against inflation and future price increases. Financing plans allow you to pay in flexible installments.

It's Easier Than You Think

Once you reach out to get started, a Chapman Funerals & Cremations advance planning specialist will meet with you to discuss your options and help you decide on a plan that fits your individual needs. We have a preplanning checklist that can help you organize your thoughts in advance. If you change your mind, your plan can be updated at any time.
