We encourage the participation and involvement of family and friends in the organisation of a funeral, as we feel this helps to create a more personalised and memorable send off. There are many ways of customising our Funeral Plans to achieve this, and not all of them need to cost the earth.
Family/friends can carry the coffin.
Perform the service yourselves rather than using a Minister.
Decorate the coffin yourselves with photos or flowers.
Most people in the UK are unaware that they do not actually need to go through a Funeral Director if they do not want to. We will also advise families who wish to organise the funeral themselves.
