You can complete as much or as little of this form as you want.

You can set out your wishes in the table at the end of this leaflet by ticking the options you'd prefer. You can also add any further information about each choice using the 'comments' section.

You should be aware that many of your wishes will have a cost to deliver them. Prices will vary depending on who you or your family purchase things from, and how they were purchased.

Funeral directors charge different amounts, so get quotes from more than one firm. There are also price comparison websites available.
