Arranging Funeral

Arranging Funeral

No one wants to have to arrange a funeral at what is already a difficult time. If you do, having an understanding of what is involved and how to deal with problems will help. Most funerals are arranged by the nearest relatives and if not by a close friend. If there is no one, the local or health authority will arrange a simple funeral.

The person may have left instructions about the type of funeral and burial they wanted.  There is no legal obligation for these instructions to be followed, but they usually are. Read about how funerals are arranged, what services you can expect to get from a funeral director and how to get help with paying.


Most funerals are arranged through a funeral director. Find one who belongs to one of the professional associations, such as the National Association of Funeral Directors – NAFD or the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors – SAIF. These associations have codes of practice and complaints procedures. Some local authorities also run their own funeral services by arrangement with a local firm of funeral directors. You can arrange a funeral without a funeral director. If you want to do this, the Natural Death Centre or Cemeteries and Crematorium department of your local authority can offer help and guidance.


Some funeral directors might ask for a deposit before making the funeral arrangements. You may be offered a discount to pay for the funeral before or soon after it takes place. If you know the money will be released at a later date to cover the cost, you might want to consider a bank loan or overdraft to pay early.

Money may be released later, if the person who has died made arrangements to pay for their funeral through an insurance or other policy, or if money is released after their estate has been dealt with.  If there is a legal claim for negligence against someone for the death, the cost of the funeral can be claimed as compensation. Otherwise, you may agree payment by instalment, or pay after the legal process of dealing with the person’s estate has been settled.

    After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. There has to be an easy method you can remove me from that service? Thank you!

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and
    say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new
    to everything. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    Have you ever thought about creating an e-book
    or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog centered on the same subjects you discuss and would love to have
    you share some stories/information. I know my viewers would appreciate your
    work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to
    send me an e-mail.

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you should publish more about
    this issue, it might not be a taboo subject but usually people don’t
    speak about these topics. To the next! Cheers!!
