Arranging a funeral can seem like a daunting task – especially if it’s the funeral of a loved one. Many matters need to be attended to and many decisions need to be made at short notice.
However, the task can be made a lot easier if its broken down into smaller pieces, and especially if you enlist the aid of a professional funeral director, who can arrange many of these matters once you’ve chosen which way you’d like to proceed.
The checklists on this page cover the most common areas that need to be looked at when arranging any funeral:
- specific decisions about the funeral service,
- collecting the personal information of the deceased,
- locating important documentation, and
- contacting important people and organisations to advise of the passing of the deceased
- funeral expenses
