We think we’re different to other funeral plan companies. We consider the important things that you might not have thought about yet when planning your funeral and go the extra mile to help you and your loved ones when you need it most.
With the Kwaetus Advanced Planning Dashboard we let you conceptualise your ceremony of life; choose the music, the venue, the food and also let your loved ones know what to wear for your funeral. You can already ensure you have allocated a budget for it. Once you have conceptualised your funeral, you can share your preferences to your loved ones.
For a total peace of mind, we work with a network of local, independent Funeral Directors across the UK and Europe to provide you with the best and tailored funeral prepaid plan that suits your need.
Every person has different likes and dislikes and this is no different when it comes to funerals. The type you choose can depend on a myriad of factors, such as cultural traditions, personal preference and religious beliefs, which can then influence whether viewings or visitations are permitted and whether you will be buried or cremated.
There are a whole range of options to choose from, meaning there will be something that is right for you.
The traditional funeral has two functions; to acknowledge the life and death of the person and to bring grieving family and friends together to say goodbye. This usually involves a viewing or visitation. The coffin is then transported in a hearse to the funeral service. For traditional funerals, the funeral service is normally held in a church. After the funeral service the deceased is taken to their final resting place. There can also be a gathering after the service - typically referred to as a wake - to share memories about the recently departed.
You may have specific wishes for your own funeral which your loved ones are not aware of when you pass. To ensure they are met, you can plan your funeral in advance by logging in your Kwaetus dashboard and then share it to your funeral Director and loved ones.
Over the last 50 years, this has become the most popular type of funeral - accounting for around 70 per cent of all ceremonies every year. Typically, the service takes place in a chapel or stet, but it can happen after a church service, depending on the wishes of the deceased.
Once the body has been cremated, loved ones are usually given the ashes in an urn, which can then be kept or scattered in a place that has meaning for the family.
Eco-friendly and woodland funerals
This type of service is ideal for those looking to be buried in a naturally beautiful setting, which can provide loved ones with a place to visit when they want to remember you.
In this instance, there are usually no religious or spiritual attachments to the funeral and the body is placed in a biodegradable container, such as a cardboard or wicker coffin, rather than being embalmed. The graves can then be marked with something like a memorial tree or a bronze plaque, preserving the natural wonder of the surroundings.
