"Enjoy peace of mind today, by planning for tomorrow”

At the Ogden Funeral Home we have created an exceptional program with Certified Preplanning Consultants to look after your personal funeral pre-arrangements. We help families to create a meaningful, relevant final tribute in keeping with your personal tastes, cultural background and religious preferences. They can be revised at a future date should your wishes change over time.

We have available a wide range of comprehensive preplanning packages with payment options that fit within your present budget and at the same time protect you against tomorrow’s inflationary costs. When you preplan, your requests and preferences are recorded and kept on file in our funeral home until they are needed. We can also offer assistance should you wish to transfer any existing preplanned arrangements, personal records and prepayment funds to the Ogden Funeral Home.

Funeral preplanning is a part of your complete estate planning portfolio. It will also help ease your family from the emotional stress and financial burden that is usually associated with planning a funeral at the time of a death of a loved one. It is a thoughtful and considerate plan for you to make for your family or your Estate Trustee.

"Don't be afraid to ask questions. We are here to give you information without pressure or obligation."
