Pre-planning Information

You can also use our pre-planning form  so we may better assist you.


More and more people today find it comforting to arrange their funeral and address the associated expenses in advance. Doing so makes the process simpler for those who survive, and it assures that one's current wishes are carried out in the future. Modern day prepayment options usually include placement of funds in an insurance vehicle; these funds are not co-mingled with the funeral home's assets. Interest, as with most insurance products, remains in the policy and is used as a hedge against rising funeral costs. There is no tax liability or annual reporting for the insured. It is a sensible and considerate decision. Make the right choice for those you love...Talk to us about Columbian Life Insurance.

Products and services which are prepaid are guaranteed by the funeral home and are regulated by the State of South Carolina Insurance Commission. The State Board of Financial Institutions assesses a $20 fee for each pre-paid contract written. Pre-arrangements and pre-funding can take place at our funeral home or in the convenience of your own home; we serve families throughout the Grand Strand and into the Conway area. In fact, it is not unusual for us to assist families in the Pawleys Island, Murrells Inlet, Surfside Beach, North Myrtle Beach, Little River, and Calabash North Carolina areas. These communities have found that our service is outstanding. Our onsite crematory, fair pricing, and unmatched personal service make McMillan-Small the funeral home of choice for many families in these areas.

We are also proud to boast associations with select funeral homes such as the  Waters-Powell Funeral Home and Stoudemmire-Dowling Funeral Homes in Florence, the Carolina Funeral Home in Scraton, the Johnson Funeral Home in Aynor and the  Hardwick Funeral Home and Ward Funeral Home in the Loris areas. These homes provide a network through which families from these areas can be assured of consistent caring and compassionate service.
