Funeral company Tobin Brothers has become the first in Australia to provide an online funeral planning service.

The service is designed to give people the opportunity to put in place some plans for their own send-off without having to sit down for a rather awkward chat with the funeral company staff.

“Not everyone has the time to sit down with our funeral planners and go through the detail of planning a funeral, and some people just aren’t comfortable talking about their own funeral. Sitting at the computer in their own home, they can now go online with complete anonymity and at their own pace to plan their funeral,” Tobin Brothers Funerals managing director Martin Tobin says.

The service allows users to pre-plan their funeral down to the last detail, selecting everything from the style of coffin to service music – artist options range from the traditional to Madonna and Guns n’ Roses.

“More and more people of middle age regularly use the internet today, and we believe this new funeral planning service will suit their needs,” Tobin says.
