The funeral

Advice and guidance for planning a funeral, the ceremony, necessary documents, and what to do after the ceremony.

A funeral has different meanings for different people. It is an opportunity to say goodbye to the person who has died and to mourn their loss.

It can also be an occasion to celebrate their life and express thankfulness for them. Some people leave a written record or have told family or friends what arrangements they would prefer for their funeral. They may also have had a pre-paid funeral plan in place. If this is the case, the process of arranging the funeral is a little simpler.

If you are unsure of their wishes, there are a range of decisions you will need to make, from deciding on the type of funeral and location through to the choice of music and readings.

We can help you with information on all the options that are available as well as finding a funeral director in your area.
