Care Home guide on funeral planning

We Have Provided a funeral planning guide to help both residents and Family Members of Barons Park Care Desford Lane, Kirby Muxloe, Leicester LE9 2BE

How do you plan your funeral before you die?

First and foremost: Let your family and loved ones know if you want to be buried or cremated. Or you can put it in your Will or a letter to your family. Just let someone know your definitive answer to avoid any unnecessary stress during an already emotional time. If you don’t care, let them know that too.

A WOMAN'S UNDERSTANDING CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE TO THE PRECIOUS MEMORIES YOUR FAMILY WILL HAVE FOREVER."

Funeral Director Samantha Ward

Plan your funeral arrangements:

Have you thought about whether you would prefer to be buried or cremated? Perhaps you would like a green funeral rather than a more traditional one. Think about what kind of service you would like, and whether you want it to be more of a celebration of your life than a conventional ceremony. What hymns, readings or music would you like to have, and who would you like to be there? Write this down and give it to someone whom you trust, or put it in your will. Bay Tree Funerals has a free and simple form, Please complete the form My Funeral Wishes, to set down what you would like for your funeral.

Tailor made prepaid funerals

If none of Open’s set plans is exactly what you had in mind, we can work with you to tailor a plan that specifically meets your needs. You may find it useful to use one of our plans as a guide to help you begin the process. Then you could add an extra limousine if required, or decide that you would prefer the service to take place in your local church rather than a crematorium chapel.

Whatever your thoughts, talk to us and we’ll guide you through the planning process. Then your chosen funeral director will detail all the fees and charges giving you a final amount to pay. Whatever your agreed plans, we promise to provide the funeral of your choice with absolutely no further costs at the time of need.
