My husband and I have being talking about getting our funerals paid for, my question is; is it worth it and who will be contacted when we go?
Thank you for your question, I personally think it is a great idea to pay for your future funeral service as this takes so much stress off the family, especially if they don't have the funds to give you what they would like. With you organising this your both able to choose the coffin of your choice and you can have yours photo's on a usb or disc for the photo tribute, even writing your life story, and you can choose your celebrant by getting there business card and requesting whoever you like.
When you get the pre paid, you will be asked for a contact person and phone number, this can be a family member, close friend, solicitor (whoever you trust), when the time is here that person will be notified of your passing. But please confirm with them that they are ok with been the contact person, and let them know where your documents are. What I've done is given my person a copy of the documents and they open it after I have passed one.
