The Funeral Service

If the deceased has previously stated their wishes for their funeral, perhaps as part of a pre-paid funeral plan, the details of the service should be adhered to as closely as possible by those responsible for making the funeral arrangements.

It may be that this includes their preferences on cremation or burial, the venue for the service and details such as the funeral transport or choice of music to be played during the ceremony.

However, in the event that no such wishes have been previously specified, we recommend that the family, in consultation with the funeral director, coordinates a funeral that is believed to be in keeping with the deceased’s assumed preferences.
