                Celebration of a Life -                   Funeral preparation and planning

As with any major event in life, like a wedding, a birth or a holiday - funerals also need to be planned and prepared for. 

But unlike these, we don’t usually think or want to do this in advance, shopping around for the best service for our requirements. Therefore not knowing what to expect when walking into a Funeral Directors both practically and cost wise.


It's usually a matter of googling “Funeral Directors near me” and taking the first one, even if they aren’t the right one, or can’t do as you would wish, or don’t tell you what your choices really are.  


When it comes to the time of having to organise a Funeral, after our loved ones may have been ill for a time or died suddenly, we are usually exhausted both emotionally and physically, grieving and not in the best place to make important and costly financial decisions.  




By planning in advance we can make this whole process so much more relaxed on both our health (and our wallets!)  and take the time to consider what we or our loved ones would really want and would be a true reflection of  their lives. 


 As the Funeral Industry is unregulated, this means prices can vary dramatically from one funeral director to another, and the true cost is not always advertised or displayed up front. (changes are coming in this regard!)  

   And it's not the thing we usually want to go shopping around for either beforehand or at this tender time after the death of a loved one, although it is possible to organise the whole funeral yourself as using a Funeral Director is not a legal requirement.  


 Together in this time together, we will consider and explore all the possible options and what is of most importance to you or for others. 

 This includes the steps needed to be taken after someone dies, as depending on where a person dies, these will vary,  including after-death care, planning for all aspects of a funeral, ways of paying for a funeral, and recording all of this in a document to leave for the people who will be organising and arranging it.
