Things to know when planning a Funeral

Planning a funeral can be an extremely emotional, overwhelming and difficult time.

We’ve pulled together some inspiration and tips from leading experts in the industry to act as a guide for anyone planning a funeral.

  • Although the time scale may seem incredibly tight, do take time to slow down. Do not make rush decisions and talk your options through with a family member, you are not alone.
  • Remember to take the time to say goodbye, planning a funeral can be a distraction and a positive way to focus your energy but remember to give yourself time to digest this change
  • Keep decorations simple and natural, this can serve as a comfort rather than a distraction
  • Delegate to those around you, do not put all the pressure on yourself and work closely with your friends and family to assign tasks.
  • Spend money wisely, throwing money at an occasion does not make it more special or personal.
  • Make it personal, choose music, poems, and memories for the service that mean something to you and your family
