No one likes to think about death but sadly it is an inevitability and what you have to ask yourself is whether you’d be happy for your family to have to deal with all sorts of funeral planning after you’ve passed on top of having to handle their emotions at a stressful and difficult time.
Deciding what you want to have happen ahead of time is a good idea and you can arrange to have a prepaid funeral if you are keen to make it easier for everyone once you’re gone.
Make sure you sit down with your family after you’ve arranged your own funeral plans so that they know you’ve done this and so you know your wishes will be respected. Perhaps elect one member of the family to be in charge after you’ve passed and give them all the necessary information they’ll require in order to get the funeral underway when you’re no longer around.
One key benefit of planning your own funeral is that your family won’t have a big bill to foot after you’ve died. Everything will already be taken care of so they can focus on each other and helping one another get through the day and the weeks that come afterwards without having to worry about anything else.
Just make sure you read the fine print of any plans you decide to go with, so you know what will be covered and what won’t. Of course, this is just one option and it won’t be suitable for everyone – but if you’d like to find out more, get in touch with us at Hertfordshire funerals service Opals Funerals today.
