Humanist Ceremonies – Advance Funeral Wishes Many people give thought to their funeral, including the type of ceremony they would like and how they would like their life to be celebrated. Planning a funeral for a loved one can be daunting – there are so many decisions to make at an already difficult time. By leaving some written instructions as to your own thoughts and wishes, you can make planning easier when the time comes. You can be reassured that you are taking some of the pressure off your friends and family, while also making sure your wishes are known. If you have been thinking about your own funeral, and want to explore options or record your wishes, you may find our Advance Funeral Wishes form helpful. You may also find it helpful to meet with a local HSS Registered Celebrant to discuss your thoughts and wishes.
