Information, ideas & templates to help with planning a funeral or for the end of life


The one certainty in life is death. Even though we all know this to be true, very few of us want to think about it, much less plan for it. Putting your affairs in order and writing down your wishes means that, when the time comes, your loved ones can focus on grieving for you, rather than having the anxiety of making difficult choices or second guessing what you might have wanted.

Our PLANNING AHEAD CHECKLIST summarises some of the things to consider and the FUNERAL WISHES template enables you to record your wishes. Print this out and keep it in a safe place (together with your IDEAS FOLDER, if you have one). Be sure to let those closest to you know that you have done this, and where they can find the documents.
