One of the most thoughtful things one can do is pre-plan their funeral ahead of time. This provides special benefits to pensioners and retirees. The process can be as simple or detailed as you desire. Unless you ‘voice’ or record your wishes, your family may have no idea as to what type of funeral you wanted. We have made things simple for you to record your ‘Funeral Wishes and Personal Information’ with the following download.

For peace of mind, many people not only record their wishes but also take the next step and pre-pay for their funeral. In Queensland it is a requirement that your funds are placed in a Funeral Bond, ensuring that your investment is protected. We can assist you with the implementation of a Funeral Bond, the proceeds of which will go towards the cost of your funeral when required. No age limit applies.
Our other option is a Fixed Price Pre-Paid Funeral Plan with Foresters Friendly Society, whereby we consult with you to establish all the details for your future funeral, detail all of the costs at today’s prices, you contribute the funds to us and we will then conduct the funeral when required at no further cost to you or your family (provided no changes are made to the details). Understandably this thoughtful consideration takes a great load off the grieving family at the time of passing. Loved ones are given the opportunity to mourn their loss without having the additional stress of not knowing what the deceased’s funeral wishes were and not having the worry of providing funds to pay for the funeral. Fixed Price Funerals do incur a setup fee.
We offer a very sound Funeral Insurance package and we recommend that anyone considering funeral insurance should talk with us first. One needs to be aware of some of the pitfalls associated with many insurance schemes being promoted, as they don’t always prove to be in the client’s best interest. The Sureplan Family Fund Insurance that we offer is highly recommended for those persons between the ages of 1 and 55.
We have planning options for you, no matter your age or circumstances. After completion of pre-planning, most of our clients tell us of their ‘peace of mind’ of doing so. May we respectfully suggest that there is no point in delaying this important decision, phone us at your convenience and we will be pleased to discuss many of our options with you, free of obligation. To anyone thinking about this worthwhile consideration, we offer a free copy of Melissa Abraham’s wonderful planning resource book - “Inspiration and integrity for a meaningful funeral.” This book covers many relevant topics and is a practical tool in helping you consider many aspects of funeral planning; it even includes a CD of suggested music for funerals.
This early beginning gave Basil the opportunity to develop a reputation for the provision of a quality service, assisting Townsville’s residents during the end of World War 2. Basil’s extra care and attention to detail culminated in the creation of Morleys Funerals in 1961.
When a death occurs in your family, if you are unsure of what to do, it is important to contact Morleys as soon as possible, so that we can advise you of the correct procedures to follow. Most deaths are by natural causes and occur in hospitals, aged care facilities and sometimes in private residences.
We offer one of the most modern fleets of hearses, limousines and transfer vehicles available today. Our hearses are custom built to our specification by leading special-purpose vehicle-conversion companies and they incorporate many options that enhance the way we conduct our funerals in North Queensland.
