Arranging a Funeral

When arranging a funeral, aspects that may need to be considered include:

  • Cremation or burial
  • Day, time and venue of service
  • Who should lead the service – a celebrant, clergy or a family member or friend
  • Choice of casket or coffin
  • Do you wish to conduct a viewing?
  • Who will be the pallbearers?
  • What kind of music will you want?
  • Who will deliver and prepare the eulogy?
  • Flower arrangements/tributes at the service
  • Will a death notice be required and in which paper should it appear?
  • Will donations be made in honour of your loved one?
  • Any other personalised items that you would like to be part of the service?
