Thinking about your own mortality is often a difficult task and the thought of discussing this with your loved ones may seem even worse. It doesn’t have to be though.

Call us today on 01274 571021 to see what steps you can make today.
We have been organising and conducting funeral services for many years and in this article, we will be running through the ways in which you can get a head start at making sure that your estate is in order so that there are no surprises in the down the line.
Organ and Tissue Donor
Although this won’t make preparations for your funeral any easier, signing up to be an organ or tissue donor is often something that is overlooked. The truth is, being an organ donor is definitely something that you should at least think about. Could you imagine if you were open to doing so but you had never taken the time to think about it? Being an organ or tissue donor can save a life. If this is something that you would be interested in then signing up is incredibly easy by visiting the NHS website. Although many people have heard about organ donation, many people are not aware of tissue donation so it is worth reading up on both online. If you do sign up, make sure to tell your loved ones, to ensure that your wishes are met.
Write A Will
A will is one of the most important things to make sure that you have done before passing away. Many of us will be aware of the concept of writing a will but will simply avoid it as it reminds us of our own mortality. If you have anyone that relies on you, or you have any items that you wish to pass on to one of your loved ones, then it is essential that you plan ahead and write your will. Although you can do this yourself, you are required to have two witnesses with you to make this valid. A will is even more necessary if you have had children in a previous marriage, or if you are currently not married but you are in a relationship. You can also hire a solicitor to help you write your will if you are unsure how to write it.
Finally, if you have any specific requests that you have for your funeral service, it is essential that you let your loved ones know. Planning a funeral can often be a stressful time for your loved ones and having an idea of how you would like to be sent off will be a huge weight off of their shoulders. Furthermore, if you do have any requests for your funeral, then you can be sure that you will get the send off that you deserve.
