Plan your own funeral

What to consider when you are thinking about your own funeral.

Leaving instructions for your own funeral

Thinking about what arrangements you would like for your own funeral now can help your friends and family when the time comes.

You can write down your wishes for your funeral at any time. If you have a will, you could keep these documents together, or give the instructions to the person who will eventually be planning your funeral.

Visit the GOV.UK website for information and guidance on making a will.

You can use this PDF form to write out all your wishes. It is designed to be printed and completed by hand and may not be accessible to screen readers. Alternatively you can read the questions in our guidance for planning your own funeral and write your own document.
