Talking about our final wishes well ahead of time isn’t easy, but it’s a conversation well worth having for the sake of reducing stress for the loved ones you’ll leave behind. Choosing a cemetery site and pre-purchasing now means that at the end of your life there’s no confusion over what your wishes might have been. Your family can take the time to grieve without any pressure to make choices on your behalf.
Pre-purchasing also locks in present-day prices, guarding against future price rises and potentially saving your family money compared to at-need purchasing.
A question we hear often at Adelaide Cemeteries is “Where do I start?” Some considerations to get you headed in the right direction might include:
Adelaide Cemeteries offer a 25 year grace period for tenures of more than 50 years, meaning the tenure on a site won’t start until an interment takes place, or 25 years after purchase – whichever occurs first.
We know that purchasing a site can be a significant investment, that’s why we offer interest free payment plans for pre-need sites. After securing the site with a 20% deposit, the remainder can be paid off over three years with no administration fees.
