“I can’t think of a more wonderful thanksgiving for the life I have had than that everyone should be jolly at my funeral.”


Funeral Planning

My funeral planning service covers off a multitude of decisions while educating individuals about the choices available to them, many of which may surprise you.

Although these conversations may be confronting or uncomfortable for some, I believe these decisions will have to be made at some point by either yourself or your loved ones.

I prefer you make these decisions while you are in good health and it is not so emotionally difficult for your or your family.

I will be there to support you through the conversations and remove the fear of the unknown and normalise the process for you.
