Not many people like to think about death. But just because it may make you feel uncomfortable, doesn’t mean that you can avoid it. Death, and choosing a burial place, has to be done at sometime. Instead of forcing both the decision and the financial burden on your family members, pre-planning your funeral can make a sad and stressful time a bit easier on your loved ones.

Like a pond, the surface of our lives can be changed with every ripple.  Every death causes such a ripple… in a family, to a circle of friends or to the community at large.  It’s a time of loss and grieving, it’s a time to reflect on just how vulnerable we all are…

Advanced planning is a fast and easy way to make sure that your loved ones aren’t left with the complex decisions and sudden financial burdens that will arrive with this inevitable ripple.

The Benefits of Pre-Planning

Although planning your final arrangements can be difficult to think about, pre-planning will give you the benefit of controlling the details and making sure you are remembered exactly how you want.  Our Pre-Planning will help answer all your questions, weigh your options and take you through every step of the process.

Here at Memorial Properties, we are proud to be the cemetery, mausoleum and cremation leader in the New Jersey / New York Metropolitan area.  When you pre-plan your service with us, you will learn about our unique memorial options to ensure you are remembered exactly the way you would like to be.  We offer options varying from private estates and religious interment programs to ensure you are completely satisfied with your arrangements.

Why Pre-Plan?

Alleviate the burden for family and friends

When someone passes away without pre-planning their cemetery arrangements, their loved ones can be left with tough decisions and a great deal of uncertainty during an already difficult time.  You make your wishes known, provide direction to the executor of your estate, and avoid any important decisions being influenced by grief or other emotions.  Take time to make an informed decision.  Planning ahead can be very comforting because it gives you the opportunity to make an informed decision about your arrangements you prefer.  With time on your side, you can relax and give real thought to the details of your arrangements.

Family Records Portfolio

As part of our service, we will provide interested persons with an invaluable Memorial Properties Records Portfolio, where one can record all the facts a family needs to know at a time of death.  This is considerate and helpful to the educated approach to solving your memorialization problem.

The Family Records Portfolio is not sold in stores at any price.  It is invaluable because in one compact folder, you can record all the facts your family needs to know.  This portfolio was prepared with the expert advice of lawyers, bankers, accountants, clergymen, and government officials.  In it, you will find vital checklists about information regarding your will, safe deposit boxes, the resources available through Veteran’s Benefits and Social Security.  When a death occurs, the family must have immediate access to important records.  The Family Records Portfolio, when complete, will contain the data needed to see that your loved ones receive everything that is rightfully theirs.
