Funeral wishes

Do you have any funeral wishes?

The interview will ask if you have any wishes in relation to your funeral. It may be that you do not, in which case you can simply choose ‘none’ and move onto the next section.

However, if you do have funeral wishes you would like to include in your will, you can choose that you wish:

  • to be buried;
  • to be cremated; or
  • your body to be donated to medical science.

If you choose the last of these, you will shortly have to specify the institution that is to receive your body. For further information, see our page Organ and whole body donation.

The interview will also ask you if you would like people to make a donation to charity rather than sending flowers, and will invite you to specify that charity if you wish. Bequeathed works with a number of charities, and you will see their names as options for you, but you are under no obligation to pick one of them; there is also the option to choose any other charity instead. Alternatively, you can leave it to your friends and relatives to choose their own charity.
