Pre-planning your funeral is a way to ensure your family and friends have the instructions they need to plan and organise a funeral that fulfills your wishes and desires. Funeral directors guide you in the right direction to plan a funeral that follows the instructions you want to leave behind when your death occurs. Affinity Funerals’ professional funeral directors in Sydney, can assist you with the following decisions:


Burial or Cremation: Our funeral directors will help you decide if you would prefer to be buried in a casket or have a cremation and they will take you through the different caskets and urns you can choose from to customise it exactly the way you want it at your funeral.


Funeral & Memorial Service: Together with the funeral director you will discuss the details of your funeral/memorial ceremony. The funeral director will go over the different ceremonies available to you, based on the requests you have expressed to them. You can choose from a funeral home service, a graveside service, or church and if you would like to have a private or public ceremony.


Final Resting Place: Your final resting place will be based on the decision between a burial or cremation. Our professional funeral directors are experienced and have the knowledge to guide you in the right decision that will fulfill your wishes and make you comfortable, knowing you are aware of the logistics that come with this decision.


Aesthetics: You will give the direction of how you want your funeral service to look and feel.  This category includes any music and sound, flowers and colours and any other special instructions you wish to give.


Most of us do not want to think about the day our funeral will be held, but taking the time to pre-plan with a funeral director will reduce the stress of having to plan, for your family while they are going through a difficult time of loss. You can rest assured knowing that you have taken the burden off of your family to make sure your funeral fulfills all your wishes and desires and also taking away any possibility of having to guess what it is you would have wanted.
