To help with funeral planning


We’ve put together some resources that you might need for funeral preparation.

We can help to arrange all aspects of your loved one’s funeral. However, if there are elements that you would prefer to arrange yourself, here are some links that may be helpful.

Government Resources

There are a lot of useful resources explaining what to do after someone has died. This can be an overwhelming time. We hope that these resources help you to navigate the formalities when you are ready.

Resources include information about who to notify, dealing with insurance companies, support for the bereaved family, and removing a deceased person’s name from mailing lists.

If you can’t find the information you need, please speak to your Funeral Director and we can help with further information.

Funeral planning and local area information

These resources include links to funeral planning options and local area information.



My Funeral Plan – helping your family and friends to honour your memory

Death can be difficult to discuss with your loved ones. If you don’t want to worry them, CR Smyth can help. We have a printable Funeral Plan document that will help you to communicate your wishes, either before or after you have passed.

You can record all your chosen details about the funeral service, and your burial or cremation wishes. You can include your favourite memories and stories, favourite songs and readings.

It’s a way to make sure your family hears and holds onto the memories that are most important to you.

You can download the My Funeral Plan document or call our office on (02) 4990 1425. For more information regarding our pricing please view our price list here.
