Planning Ahead

At Sun Rising we know how important it is for family members and friends to feel sure that the funeral of a loved one is just what they would have wanted. When those organising a funeral know the last wishes of a loved one, it makes it so much easier to get through those first difficult days. Wild autumn grassesThat knowledge is a priceless gift.

However, talking about our wishes with those we love can be extremely hard.  Even finding an appropriate moment to raise the subject can be difficult.  Furthermore, our desire to talk about such things can be seen as morbid or negative, when really we are simply looking for the peace of mind afforded by being organised.

Understanding this, at Sun Rising we offer a number of ideas.

My Last Wishes is short step-by-step guide designed to take you through the main things that you may want to consider - from where you would like to be buried or cremated, to what you'd like at your funeral. You can download it as a pdf by clicking the link (it will open in a separate window or tab), or get in touch and we'll send you a copy on paper.

If you'd like Sun Rising to be your last resting place, you may wish to explore the option of buying a plot in advance. Use the menu on the right to find out more information.

We would also like to emphasise the importance of having a valid, legal and up-to-date Will. There is some advice here about Wills and Probate, together with what we hope is a useful telephone number.

If you have any queries at all, please don't hesitate to get in touch. We are here to help you.
