Pre-Planning Services
Burial Information, Berlin and Gorham, NH

Pre-planning a funeral has many benefits to both you and your family.

We can provide the guidance and expertise to help you make informed decisions. We offer the finest pre-arrangement services available, so that you and your family can plan and prepare for the future. Our affiliation with NHFDA Master Trust Program and Columbian Life Insurance Co. guarantee that the arrangements you make today will be available just as you specified, without additional cost. We pride ourselves in being able to tailor services to meet most requests.

You can choose to make an appointment at one of our funeral homes or have one of our directors come to you. Often folks find it comforting to discuss their wishes in the comfort of their home. Contrary to popular belief, there is absolutely no cost to meet with one of our funeral directors.

Transferring pre-arrangements from another funeral provider is easy. Many folks do not realize that you have a right to chose your funeral or cremation provider, even if you have prepaid for services at another establishment you have the right to transfer those arrangements. If you have made a prearrangement in the past but wish to transfer your arrangements to us, we are happy to assist you.

Although prearranging services may not be a timely investment in many cases, since it returns no interest or dividends to you directly, by prepaying for your services in an irrevocable contract the money is no longer considered part of your assets. Which means should the day come that you have to be placed in a nursing or assisted care facility, this money is not considered part of your assets and can not be touched. This ensures that you will be able to have your service just as you selected.

Our Advance Planning Program is a simple, safe and secure means of funding your arrangements. For your convenience we accept personal and bank checks, cash and insurance assignments, credit cards are accepted but an administration fee of 5% will apply. Plans can be tailored to suit individual needs. Payment plans are available as well. Your existing insurance plans can be used to fund your funeral.

While talking about our own mortality is not something many people wish to talk about, it is unfortunately necessary. We always recommend that you speak to your children and family members before selecting your services. We have often had individuals or couples make pre-arrangements but at the time of their passing their families were shocked at the services that were chosen. We believe that discussing your wishes with your family will further lighten their burden at the time of your passing and will also give you time to understand your family's concerns as well.
