Often it is left to loved ones to carry out the stressful (and sometimes distressing) task of sorting through documents and using other means to find out how finances were managed and who were the key people and organizations we had business and personal links with.
As part of planning for your funeral wishes in advance, you should make lists of your important contacts and information. We suggest that you print the list below and either write in — or make a separate document — with the information that will help your family to sort out and manage your affairs in an orderly manner. Then keep it in a safe place, known to your family.
We also suggest you record information or anecdotes which will help the person who delivers the eulogy at your funeral to make it interesting, even at times amusing (there is no law that says funerals have to be completely serious and gloomy).
