End of Life Funeral Planning
Planning a funeral in advance is becoming more popular. I am extremely happy to work with you should you want to draft your own celebration of life. The funeral will then be exactly as you want it to be.
Planning your funeral service now eases the pressure off those nearest and dearest to you at a time they are invariably having to cope with their own great loss and grief. Knowing that you have planned your own ceremony can bring great comfort to your loved ones knowing that they are carrying out your wishes to the letter. I work independently to funeral directors and other services that offer funeral plan services. If you have one of these it may be an idea to talk to them about your plans.
I will work with you and your loved ones to help you prepare the ceremony. You have the freedom of having the content you desire as there are no rules. I will concentrate on your life story, your greatest achievements, your likes and dislikes, your happy moments and maybe your sad moments too. I will write the service, which can go back and forth between us however often is needed until it is perfect. I will send you the script to be kept safely. I will endeavour to deliver your funeral if you wish for no extra cost (there may be a charge for mileage if you’re not within 50 miles of Carlisle), but if, for whatever reason I am unavailable on the day I will organize for another celebrant to deliver my script.
Talking about your funeral wishes can help you and your family and friends to organise your final goodbye that feels just right.
