Your Funeral Wishes

Be remembered for what makes you, YOU!

Funerals are an important way of celebrating and honouring the things that matter to us in life – but we know people can find it hard to start conversations about funerals.

At Herriot Hospice Homecare, we value choice – recognising and supporting each person as an individual with unique journeys, experiences and needs.

If we don’t talk about it, our funeral might not reflect who we are, and how we want to be remembered.

Herriot Hospice Homecare is starting the conversation and encouraging you to join in.

Download your FREE planning pack below, containing information, questions to reflect on and chat about with friends and family, and a resource to compile your own wish-list of what YOU want from your funeral.

We understand that not everyone wants a funeral and find this subject difficult to discuss. If this is the case, you can use our funeral wishes pack to ensure your wishes of not having a funeral are also taken into account. Many people die without sharing the wishes they had for their own funeral, or before they have even thought about it.
