Planning Ahead

Planning ahead and making your wishes clear, can ease the burden on your family from making complicated decisions and dealing with the expense of a funeral.

Thinking about a funeral, let alone planning for it, is not something most people want to think about and would rather deal with it when the time comes. Planning ahead and making your wishes clear, can ease the burden on your family from making complicated decisions and dealing with the expense of a funeral.

Benefits of pre-planning

  • Plan your service the way you want to be remembered
  • Remove difficult decision making away from your family and loved ones
  • Pay at today’s price, avoid future price rises
  • No age or health restrictions
  • Pension benefits – Pre-paid funerals will not affect your pension entitlements

Blue Mountains Funerals, together with Foresters Financial, can offer you a range of pre-planning options.

Pre-Arranged Funeral

Pre-arranging your funeral allows you to work with one of our directors to plan your service. This allows you to make your own decisions about the type of service you would like, which will then be presented to your family at the time of need. There are no upfront costs at this time. The full cost of the service will be paid at the time of the funeral at current day prices.

Pre-Paid Funeral

This is the same as pre-arranging a funeral however full payment of the service is made at this time at current day prices. At the time of your funeral, there will be nothing to pay (unless an additional service is added). Your funds are held and safeguarded by being submitted to Foresters Friendly Society. For more information please see: Additional information on bonds.

Funeral Bond

A funeral bond can be started when sufficient funds are not available at the time of pre-arranging your funeral. Interest can be earned on the account or you can make regular deposits into the account, so the money is there when you need it. This bond can be converted into a pre-paid funeral when there are sufficient funds, or drawn on at the time of need and the balance paid if it does not cover the full amount. Foresters Friendly Society will safeguard the bond. Pre-paid Funeral product disclosure document

I would highly recommend Blue Mountains Funeral Services for their warmth, support and attention to detail. We could not have asked for more.

Louise and her staff were the perfect guides for this difficult process. They were knowledgeable, considerate, and above all, they listened actively and allowed us to conduct the kinds of funeral rituals that we wanted. I cannot praise them highly enough.

Blue Mountains Funerals were very helpful, considerate, kind, efficient and sensitive to our needs. Would thoroughly recommend them.

September 2020

Louise and the staff at Blue Mountains funerals were caring and professional, which really helped myself and my family at this time of grief. My mother had a pre-paid and pre-planned funeral arrangement with clear instructions and choices that the staff had on record which made following our mothers wishes comforting and easier at the time. Thank you to all staff for your professional support

August 2020

Our Mother died under the trying circumstances of Covid19 restrictions. The funeral we had planned for her could therefore not proceed. The staff at Blue Mountains Funerals were exemplary in their care, compassion, empathy and support as well as practicality as we organised a virtual loving farewell for our mother. We have been overwhelmed by the feedback from our family and friends. Much of the credit needs to go to Blue Mountains funerals namely Louise, Rose and Asha for making the virtual option real and personal.

May 2020

A very caring and supportive company. They made a very sad occasion in very difficult times easy to negotiate.

The staff at Blue Mountains Funerals were absolutely wonderful! They went above and beyond to ensure my mother’s funeral service was personalised to her. During a time of immense grief, you really need someone who understands what the family needs, and the staff of Blue Mountains Funerals really delivered in terms of service and compassion. Highly recommended!

Thank you for all you have done for us.  We did your appreciate your input into our mother’s funeral.  You displayed love and concern for us as a family, thank you.

The staff of Blue Mountains Funerals were so sympathetic and sensitive to our needs both at Emu Plains when we visited for my sister to view our mother and on the day of the funeral.  They were ready and on hand when we needed to ask for advice on anything.

I would not hesitate in spreading the word to others if they are in need of a funeral to be arranged to use Blue Mountains Funerals.

Kind regards

Not only were you all very patient but showed compassion in this difficult time. Tom we thank you and all your wonderful staff. The women looked so beautiful on the day and we were all touched at how everything fell into place. We think Dad would have been honoured.
