Why plan your own funeral?
“When my father died, I realized how important it is to plan ahead. Some years ago he showed me where the relevant folder is. And we talked about a lot of things. I was happy to know that could organize everything as he wished. That was a great relief.””
It feels good to get your things in order during your lifetime. This means, writing a will, making a patient’s provision and it also means creating a funeral plan.
Preparing the Funeral OrganizationTo put down binding decisons about your funeral, you sign a provision contract (“Vorsorgevertrag”) with MYMORIA as the mortician of your choice. In this contract you determine:
- How would you like to be buried?
Note your wishes regarding a normal burial, cremation or burial under a tree or at sea. Also consider the funeral service and ceremony.
- Where would you like to be buried?
For example at a local cemetery or in a forest graveyard. Or if you want to be buried in your home country.
- Who should be notified?
Prepare an addresses list of your family. Decide if you want a notice in a newspaper.
- Who should carry out your funeral?
We hope that MYMORIA will convince you and that you will name us as your preferred mortician.
