Pre-Need Planning

Whispering to Granddad

Why do I need to Pre-plan?

There are 101 decisions to make when a loved one dies. And knowing everything is taken care of beforehand frees you from making tough decisions at a time when making them could be hard.

Your life is unique. And starting your pre-planning with Historic Hollywood Cemetery guarantees a funeral that is just as unique as you, or the loved one you want to remember.


There are three essential reasons why Pre-Planning is important:

  • Ensure that personal wishes will be fulfilled.

  • Alleviate difficulties for the survivors.

  • Avoid unnecessary overspending.


Pre-planning a funeral should not be depressing because a service that is pre-planned can be much more of a celebration of life and far less a funeral.

What advantages are offered by choosing a family burial site in advance?

The advantages are both logistical and economic. In the first instance, with a family site there is no question or indecision at the time of burial. When the site has been pre-chosen and pre-purchased, there is no conflict. Everyone knows where the burial site is located and that it is immediately available. A family site purchased on a pre-need basis saves money, too. Inflation and supply and demand will certainly affect cemetery costs, just like everything else. What you see today, especially if there are several graves involved, will almost certainly be less expensive now than in the future.
