Resomation forms must be completed for each individual resomation of an adult, infant, still birth baby and of a body organ. They must confirm the details of the deceased, the authorisation by the correct individual and the circumstances surrounding the cause(s) of death.
Many people choose to specify any wishes they may have for their funeral to avoid any worry for their family and friends at a difficult time.
You can include your funeral wishes in your Will or document them in more detail by drafting your Advance Funeral Wishes. This lists everything from your choice of Resomation, burial or cremation to specific poems you would like to be read and by whom.
Your wishes should be signed, witnessed and kept up to date. If possible, they should be kept with your Will.
It is a good idea to also give a copy of the document to your nearest relatives or the person who will probably be responsible for making your funeral arrangements. If your Will is lodged with a solicitor for safe-keeping there may be a short delay in gaining access to it at a time when decisions about the funeral need to be made.
