Arranging a funeral

Arranging a funeral_information guides

Thinking about or planning your own funeral can be uncomfortable, but many people have ideas about what they would like to happen. 

If you are intending to plan your own funeral, there are a number of things you might want to consider, such as what type of funeral you would like, and how your funeral costs will be covered. You might want to leave clear, detailed instructions, or you might just want to talk to friends and relatives, to let them know if there is anything about the arrangements that is particularly important to you.

If you are planning a funeral for someone else, you may to be dealing with a great deal of grief yourself, and trying to support other family members or friends. 

Whatever your situation, it can help to have clear information about the steps you need to take. Our Planning a Funeral guide can help you through the process.
