FUNERAL WISHES:

Using the secure SharedAffairs platform, you will be able to create a funeral vault. This is a space where you can store all the relevant information and your wishes for your funeral proceedings.

Most of us don’t like to think about death or talk about it with our loved ones, because it’s such a sensitive and difficult topic. Unfortunately, this leads to many people passing away without their family or friends knowing what they would have wanted for their funeral arrangements and other important considerations.

The death of a loved one is always an emotional situation, and it can be difficult for those close to you to make all the necessary arrangements in the middle of everything – and the process is made harder if no one really knows what your final wishes were.

On SharedAffairs, you can safely share anything you’d like with your loved ones in the event of your death – important documents, personal letters to those you love, and your wishes for your funeral arrangements. By setting up your secure Funeral Vault, you’ll be able to make the difficult situation for your family and friends easier, because they’ll know exactly what your wishes are and can feel confident that they’re carrying out your final wishes.

In your Funeral Vault, you will be able to provide details of anything you’d like to be considered for your funeral after you’ve passed on. It’s up to you what you choose to place in your digital vaults, but we will prompt you to tell us a few key things about your wishes.

For example, we will ask you what type of funeral you’d like to have, and you can create a list of names and contact details for anyone you’d like to be informed of your funeral.

We will also ask you to share any preferences you have when it comes to:

  • The service
  • Music
  • Poems/readings
  • Flowers
  • Photos
  • The eulogy
  • Prayers
  • Catering
  • Anything else related to your funeral arrangements

If you have already made any arrangements with a funeral director, you can indicate this and provide their details, so that your loved ones will be able to get in touch with them easily. If you’ve already agreed and paid for something in relation to your funeral arrangements, you should also provide the details of this in your Funeral Vault.

It’s up to you how much or how little information you store in your Funeral Vault and in your other digital vaults on SharedAffairs. You can choose what prompts you’d like to answer and what you’d like to skip.
