Easy funeral planning steps

Plan ahead. Planning ahead is the best thing you can do. Your plan doesn’t need to be complicated. Even a simple plan will be helpful to your family. Start with the basics: Interment choices (i.e., burial, cremation, donation to medical science, burial at sea); and funeral service choices (i.e., a traditional funeral, memorial service, graveside service, no service).

Estimate thecost of your funeral. Change your choices, if necessary, to reduce the expected cost.

Share your funeral plan with your family so they know your wishes. Pick a trusted family member, friend or advisor to be primarily responsible for carrying out your wishes. Start with your basic plan and then keep them updated as you add details over time.

Specify the details of your funeral ceremonies. This is optional if you prefer not to go into the details. But keep in mind that it will be very helpful to those who will be making the final arrangements for your funeral. A Celebrant can help you plan the funeral ceremonies.

Make financial arrangements to pay for your funeral. Figure out if you will leave behind enough money to cover the funeral cost and other final expenses. Consider funeral insurance, trusting, pre-purchasing cemetery space, and a pre-need contractfor funeral services.

Organise and document your key personal information. This will be essential for wrapping up your affairs and will be helpful to those who will be delivering eulogies and writing your obituary. Also, think about what you might want to leave behind for genealogy purposes. Future generations in your family will appreciate all of this information.
