My Day My Way – Free Template

Not many people like to talk about their own funeral. So we’ve written this free funeral template for you to download. Paper copies are also available from our Snainton office at 9A Station Road, opposite the doctor’s surgery.

We encourage everyone to at least think about their own funeral arrangements. Having this information readily available and letting family know will make everything much easier for your nearest and dearest at a sad and difficult time.

What should I do once I’ve filled it in?

Please keep it in a safe place and tell someone about it. If you would like us to keep a copy for you, we will be happy to do so. You may wish to photocopy it and give details to your next of kin or your solicitor.

Our revels are now ended by William Shakespeare

Our revels are now ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded in a sleep.

Taken from ‘The Tempest’
