Planning ahead checklist

Planning ahead for a funeral can be a daunting process. Knowing what you want is only one aspect of planning. We are here to help you.

Planning ahead can be a daunting process. Knowing what you want is only one aspect of planning. Before that, you will need to know all of the things you need to make decisions about, including burial, cremation and memorialisation offerings.

To help make sure you've thought of everything, we recommend creating Your Final Checklist, a resource designed by The GroundSwell Project that can be helpful when starting conversations about planning ahead.

It covers questions regarding documents, your send-off, loved ones and has room for you to make your own notes. We also recommend that you may want to consider writing your very own emotional will.

Remember that we have a range of resources available to you, and are here for you.
