Why Plan Ahead

Why Plan Ahead

There’s a lot that goes into planning a funeral, but making those arrangements beforehand gives you time to consider all of your options and make sure that you’re covering all of the necessary details. Still feeling unsure? Here are some of the most important reasons why planning ahead may be the best option.

It's Easy

Fill out a form or meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan, at any stage in their life, and you always can make changes if you wish.



You Decide

Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. Including your family in the planning process can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect your desires.



Relieve Your Family’s Burden

Preplanning relieves your family of that burden and gives them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance.



You Can Prepay

Prepayment generally means that you save money by being protected from inflation and price changes. Prepaying also provides peace of mind for your family, who won’t have to figure out your burial expenses when the time comes. Prepayment on lots and graves is available but prepaying of opening charges are not and are due at time of burial. 



What If I Move?

We keep a record of your preplanned arrangements and any prepayments.


Planning For The Future

The selection of a final resting place is a decision worthy of careful consideration. Planning ahead, in the calm of today, eliminates the necessity of a painful emotional and financial burden under pressure of time and grief.

Traditional burial in our landscaped grounds is provided through a multitude of options. Single graves are offered with flat markers or upright stones as well as double graves with upright stones. The single graves accommodate two and the double four people. Larger sites are available. Please come visit Woodlawn and see for yourself the splendor of one of New England's most beautiful settings
