Pre-planning your funeral and discussing it with your family may initially seem like an uncomfortable topic, but it is becoming more acceptable, especially with the current Covid-19 pandemic.
Under normal circumstances, funerals are usually held one to two weeks after the passing of a loved one, depending on your religion. However, there may be a delay should an inquest into the death be necessary, or during pandemics - such as the one which we are currently experiencing. Whatever time your family may have, arranging a funeral is always a very challenging undertaking to manage during a period of grief.
Although you may feel that you do not want a big fuss made on your passing, it is important to remember that your family and friends may need some form of ritual to gain a sense of closure and peace of mind.
There are also many benefits when planning your funeral in advance.
