At the Blenheim Community Funeral Home we do whatever we can to make a difficult life event easier for you. Here are some things to keep in mind:
– At the Blenheim Community Funeral Home we understand that it may take up to 8 weeks before you will receive money from CPP benefits and Life Insurance Policies and we are willing to work with you in terms of paying for Funeral expenses. Some Funeral Homes start calculating interest if you haven’t paid within one month. We don’t.
– At the Blenheim Community Funeral Home, we allow you to include cemetery charges on your Funeral Account. If you are faced with having to buy a cemetery plot when a loved one dies, some Funeral Homes will make you pay that as well as the opening/closing of the grave and registration fees up front before the day of your loved one’s funeral service. For a double grave plus one opening/closing in a Municipally operated cemetery, you would need to come up with $4209.71 in a very short time.
– At the Blenheim Community Funeral Home, we allow you to charge flowers and funeral luncheons to your Funeral Account so that you are not overwhelmed with all of those expenses all at once.
– At the Blenheim Community Funeral Home we accept debit cards and credit cards…yes, folks do pay their Funeral Accounts with credit cards. Debit cards are difficult since there are daily limits imposed on them between $500.00 to $1000.00 per day and although one time authorizations can be made through banks, it’s easier to write a cheque. The reality is in this day and age with the rewards that Credit Card companies offer, it might make sense to use your credit card and then pay that off. You can use debit cards and credit cards to make memorial donations and credit cards can also be used to make monthly payments for pre-arranged funerals.
At the Blenheim Community Funeral Home, we do help.
