Arranging a funeral

“I had no idea where to start when I had to arrange my dad’s funeral. It isn’t something I ever thought about until I had to.”

A funeral is a celebration of a person’s life, allowing loved ones to come together and remember the person that they are saying farewell to. It is a reflection of a personal journey and everyone has their own idea what they’d like their final send off to include.

With so much to think about, we have put together the main things you need to consider when planning your own funeral.
