From the moment you start reading this book you think, "why on earth didn t someone think of writing this years ago?" This splendid book will offer you all the options. --Claire Rayner OBE
It has all the information that you need. It is also rather inspiring. --The Daily Telegraph
This is the first contemporary, practical guide that covers all aspects of planning a memorable service. It deals in a fitting and sensitive manner with all the options and possibilities for services and ceremonies, provides an up-to-date guide on the costs, and above all helps make life much easier for family, friends, and loved ones. Complete with real life stories, practical ideas and uplifting photographs, this beautiful book speaks to the heart, sensitively offering the information and inspiration we need at a time of grief and vulnerability. Most people faced with arranging a funeral don't know what they don't know. Written by experienced funeral advisers, it covers all aspects of funerals in order to give you as much choice and participation as you feel you want, including: how much everything costs and how to make plans and arrangements; ideas to help you during the time leading up to the funeral; burial, cremation, green funerals, coffins, venues and memorialisation; and the elements of a good funeral ceremony.See all Product description

Having had the pleasure to work with Jane Morrell when arranging my mum's 'celebration of her life' her kindness and empathy shines through in this book. I now buy it for anyone close to me who faces the same task.
This book has helped me see how that can happen - how our family can make it happen (I've already given a copy of this to my brother and am sending a copy to my parents).
When I first bought this book I imagined it would take me a while to read it, I'd have to be in the right space and perhaps even would struggle through parts.
But its layout, its beautifully selected pictures, its clear and concise content and, perhaps best of all, its real stories make it easy to dip into and I found myself reading most of it in one sitting!
Ironically its a book that many will only think about needing or getting after the event or when its too late to make a difference ...
... we have it out in the lounge and I'm showing all my friends it!
