Funeral Guide Book - proceedures - requirements - 

explanations - information from end of life to burial or cremation.

           When a family member dies the loving  and respectful way to farewell them is by arranging the End of Life ceremony within their family and friends. The intrusion of strangers, who do not share your grief, can be kept to a minimum.

          Funerals affect us all. Preparing for death and then laying our loved ones to rest is a duty which has either happened already or will be visiting us in the future. When the departed is closely related, either by love or birth, it is likely that you will be playing a major role in decisions governing a number of important facets. Either of two books shown below provide the detailed information you need in order to conduct the entire ceremony or to guide the funeral director in the performance of duties as you would wish them..                                       

          The costs of a suitable and respectful end of life funeral can be considerable when conducted by a funeral director who takes charge of all stages. In actual fact many of these stages can be quite easily handled by yourself or other relatives and show savings which are more sensibly spent on sustaining the bereaved family. The death and immediate stages of transport, holding, laying-out (which is the washing, preparation and dressing), viewing, coffin selection, music, printing, etc. can all be handled satisfactorily either by relatives or by contacting the professional folks direct. We advise how to contact these folks who are the same people that the funeral director would be employing.

          These books explain the rites involved in preparing for death and how to obtain the services of a cemetary or crematorium, a coffin manufacturer, supplier of funeral material, or a religious body, without dealing through a funeral director. The books contain no advertisements but do explain how to find deeper information explaining end of life requirements easily on the web sites where turther, helpful, information is available. 

          'Funerals. How to Plan, Organise and Conduct a Family Funeral in Australia' is a Kindle e book. 'Step by Step Guide to Knowledge and Savings in a Family Funeral in Australia' is a printed version which allows for study and recording. Content is almost identical. Both cover the same situations.

          In both books all stages - from death to burial or cremation are covered. The stages are explained and also the parts which you can play. From time of death through transportation, storage, laying out the body, selection of coffin, celebrant, music, flowers, training and duties of the pall-bearers, etc.. A  list of the contents is shown lower- down. The book includes information on the donation of body for organ transplant or research. There are also explanations of Wills, Probate, Powers of Attorney, and Advance Health Directives.
