Arranging a funeral inevitably demands a series of decisions to be made.

In instances where the deceased has made their wishes known, the decision making process is often straight forward.

Where this is not the case, however, the family will need to delegate responsibility for arranging the funeral to a set representative.

This person will need to be prepared to issue instruction on:

Organ donation
Private verses public funeral service
Preferred time and date for the service
Venue: church, private chapel, cemetery chapel etc.
Viewing: open casket, closed, or none
Music selection
Pallbearers
Preparation and delivery of the eulogy
Speakers
Floral arrangements
Newspaper death notice
Requests for donations to a select charity to honour the deceased
Payment/finances
