How to arrange a funeral
Before arranging a funeral, it is sensible to check the deceased's will (if there is one) for funeral directions. These are non-binding, but most families choose to honour them, if practical.
Around 80% of funerals in the UK are cremations.
A helpfing guide to arranging the funeral is contained in the Government leaflet "What to do after a death". You can download this leaflet in PDF format by clicking here. There is further information about arranging a funeral on the Directgov website.
