About Funeral Bonds
Pre-planning can deliver peace of mind for you and the family. The option of Funeral Bonds is common place today and is an excellent way to clearly communicate your preferences and take much of the burden away from your loved ones at an emotional time, when decisions are difficult to make.

We are often asked, “How safe is a funeral bond?” The answer could not be more simple. A funeral bond is completely secure as it is held in trust under an Act of Government. Your investment is held in a Friendly Society Funeral Benefit Fund which is regulated by the Corporations Act 2001 and the Life Insurance Act 1995.

For peace of mind, and to offer the flexibility often required, Dawsons Funeral Home together with Funeral Plan Management are happy to offer you a capital guaranteed investment fund, with the specific purpose of meeting your future funeral expenses. To find out more, we invite you to book a confidential, commitment free meeting, with one of our friendly team, to discuss a plan which is suited to your circumstances.
