Though not an easy job to undertake, pre-arranging your own funeral will alleviate loved ones of a major task at a difficult time, and is one way you can help those you leave behind.
A funeral service is a final opportunity to say farewell to a loved one, and an opportunity for family and friends to come together to show support for one another.
The funeral service is down to personal choice and is often something that is not discussed in any detail until a death has occurred. This leaves the remaining family or friends with little knowledge of what sort of funeral the deceased would have wished for or where to go to for help.
Bereavement services staff, funeral directors and the Registrar of Births and Deaths are there to guide you through this process. If a solicitor is involved then they too will offer help.
We offer a guidance document designed to be printed and kept with your will. As well as allowing you to specify who will be arranging the funeral and what options you would like, it will hopefully enable you to price the various options and establish costs that may arise. It is important to ensure that people know the location of this document.
