What information is recorded with your funeral wishes?

Your Personal Details – section allows you to record details you or your family will need for official records.
Details of Committal – section allows you to identify how you would like you or your loved one to be put to rest.
Details of Funeral Wishes – section allows you to detail your wishes regarding your or your loved one’s funeral.
At-Need Funeral Planning – At- need funeral plans are useful for families who need to plan a funeral and get prices, before selecting a funeral director. The ‘Details of Deceased’ section in the eziFunerals Funeral Wishes planning tool only applies if someone has passed away.
What happens after your funeral wishes have been recorded?
Once your funeral wishes are recorded, you can store it online, share it with your family, download it, save it with your will and allow your family to use it to get prices before selecting a funeral director. There’s no obligation to select a Funeral Director.
Note: Funeral Wishes Are Not Binding
It is important to understand that funeral wishes under a Will are not legally binding on your family or your executor, but rather demonstrate your preferences.
Talk to your loved ones about your funeral wishes
It is also be a good idea to appoint a funeral guardian and ensure your loved ones are aware of your wishes in case your Will is not reviewed until after the funeral.
Funeral Guardians are people you designate to be notified upon your death and execute your funeral wishes. Once you choose you’re Funeral Guardians in your account, they will be sent an email where they can accept or decline your request.
If they accept, they are sent an email and are asked to store this in a safe place. Upon your death, they will be required to produce a Medical Certificate of Death. Once your death has been confirmed, your account will be unlocked to access your funeral plan.
You can record your funeral wishes in eziFunerals secure Dashboard. PLEASE CLICK ON THIS LINK TO START RECORDING YOUR FUNERAL WISHES.
