Attention to your detailed wishes.
Funerals are becoming more personal, and as a result Jennings Funeral Directors in Dublin have seen increased levels of enquiries about advance funeral planning.
Modern funerals allow us far more around burial or cremation, as well as many more options in terms of funeral times, places of Repose, eulogy, funeral music, funeral flowers, coffins, prayers, participants, readers, condolences, and all elements of the celebration of life. Choice in services is a good thing, but it can be confusing, particularly when dealing with the emotional elements of bereavement.
Many more people are getting in touch with Jennings Funeral Directors to enquire about making their own funeral arrangements. Advance funeral queries to Jennings are often about a person wishing to make it a little easier for their grieving families after they pass away.
The pre-planned funeral has always been a traditional part of what Jennings offer in terms of customer service – this began in our Head Office at the Five Lamps in Amiens Street – but is now available in all our branches – Oscar Traynor Road, Coolock, Raheny and Blanchardstown, Dublin 15.
We maintain archives of carefully recorded funeral arrangements where local people have come in to Jennings, and with the Funeral Director’s guidance, set their wishes down on paper – often to the very last detail; from readings to songs to family members for recitation of the readings.
Jennings Funeral Directors – commitment to serve – advance funerals – personally considering your funeral options.
In these days of multiple choice around bereavement tributes, creating your own funeral has many benefits – for instance by coming in for a free consultation, you can explore the dedicated spaces Jennings Funeral Directors can offer for all kinds of funerals, chapels of repose for all kind of funeral tribute gatherings, intimate or large – and get a sense of how best a family can utilise the many services on offer.
Handy booklet – pre-planned funeral information & guide in one downloadable document.
In light of this, Jennings have designed a booklet about pre-planned or advance funerals.
The booklet can be printed out, or saved as a useful document to be read online.
The advance funeral booklet contains clear, precise points of information about advance funerals, including a useful checklist so the client can reflect about the many funeral options and choices that might be relevant to their own pre-planned funeral wishes.
No funeral question considered too small
You might also find that the funeral question check-list at the back of the booklet can be useful before you call in to see your own Funeral Director in person, as it triggers many questions about funerals and services which you can then ask about, either on the phone or in person.
Your Jennings Funeral Director remains at your disposal for any query. You don’t need an appointment to call in to any of our branches to check anything out around advance funeral plans. Pre-planning a funeral generally involves a lot of detail, but the advantage is that you can take your time, get information and advice on even the smallest of details in a calm, unhurried environment.
