Step by Step funeral planning

When a family member or close relative dies, the last thing you’ll want to do is to start making all the decisions that come with arranging a funeral. Many people leave detailed instructions about their preferences for their funeral or you may find that they have a pre-paid funeral plan, but if not you will have to decide everything from where the funeral is to be held, through to readings and music.

Arranging a funeral can be complicated at the best of times but the emotional upset that comes with bereavement can make the prospect of planning a funeral very stressful indeed. This step by step guide has been designed to guide you through the basics of arranging a simple funeral.

The very first thing you’ll need to do is to find out whether the deceased has a pre-paid funeral plan; pre-paid plans are usually held with a funeral director or with a specialist funeral plan provider. If the deceased has paid into a plan, you’ll need to locate the details as soon possible and then follow the instructions which have been left. You will also need to check whether the deceased has purchased or reserved a cemetery plot as this information will be required before you contact a funeral director.
