Organising memorial requirements in advance is worth considering for a number of reasons.
The video above describes some key reasons for prepaying a memorial and showcases a range of InvoCare's Memorial Parks and Gardens in New South Wales and Queensland. Forest Lawn Memorial Park is a member of InvoCare Memorial Parks and Gardens.
When a memorial is prepaid, you have the time to clearly think about your preferences and discuss them with one of our Family Service Advisors in a pleasant and relaxed environment. You may also consider things often taken for granted such as where the memorial should be and how many people it needs to accommodate.
Prepaying a memorial for yourself or for your whole family ensures that your specific instructions will be carried out. Most importantly, it takes the burden of making decisions on your behalf away from loved ones at a difficult and emotional time.
From a practical point of view, the option of prepaying ensures these requirements are carried out at an agreed cost, taking the financial burden away from those we leave behind.

One of the most fundamental things to consider is how you or a loved one should be remembered after the funeral service has been conducted. Deciding on a memorial that family and friends can visit is well worth considering.
Memorials are a focus for reflection and a permanent marker for a life lived, where family, friends and future generations can come to remember and pay their respects. As time passes, the significance of key dates such as anniversaries, birthdays and religious days grows and so too does the importance of having a memorial to visit.
Memorials are as personal as you desire them to be. There are many options available to help capture the spirit of each individual, including your cultural and religious customs.
