Unsure about funeral arrangements?

If you are under pressure to arrange a funeral soon, I'd recommend that you go directly to "The Good Funeral Guide," blog and website.* Then if you've time, follow the wider musings of people like me. But don't think you have to follow a standard laid down by others, and don't feel like a cheapskate if you don't do the luxury job. This funeral (yours in future, or the one you are arranging) is yours, it doesn't belong to the funerals industry, nor to celebrants like me. A good celebrant or undertaker will do, as far as possible, what you want. I repeat - you can do EXACTLY what you want, within the law, and there are a lot of people who can help you to do so. You may not know what you want, of course, in which case you should be helped to find that out, not told what is going to happen.

I hope it goes as well as it can for you.

*It's nothing to do with me, and my blog has no commercial basis - I just know it's good.

    for many helpful and challenging thoughts, and much practical advice, but you'll need to move to the webpages and the various menu choices to cut to the chase as far as an actual funeral goes, as opposed to funerals in general.
