Funeral Resources

Here you will find useful information to plan a funeral service for yourself or a loved one.

You will find the PLANNING A FUNERAL document useful to capture key milestones in your life, plus your funeral or memorial service wishes.  This will be helpful to write your eulogy.

THE FUNERAL SERVICE link gives you a general framework for a service.

There are ideas for MUSIC to play during a service, plus valuable Q&A's that may give you a better insight into service planning.

You may wish to contact a FCAA Celebrant member direct to pre-plan or conduct a service for you or a loved one. See our Celebrant Directory page.
