Advanced funeral directive

Advanced funeral directive

What is an advanced funeral directive?

An advanced funeral directive is a document containing instructions for relatives and friends, so that those responsible for arranging the funeral have a clear understanding of the wishes of the person who has died.

Funeral wishes, whether made in a Will or an advanced funeral directive, are not legally binding after death. They can simply be written out informally. We offer a form that can guide you through the process of planning a funeral, which suits your own individual situation and priorities.
