Most funerals in the UK are organised by Funeral directors or Celebrants but they do not have to be. Arranging a funeral without a director can provide an opportunity for a highly personalised tribute and could save you money.
There are many reasons why people may decide to arrange the funeral themselves. It could be they wish to be responsible for creating a more personalised tribute or because they feel uncomfortable passing the responsibility to strangers. It could also come down to money. Funeral directors have to operate commercially and can be expensive. When organising a 'do-it-yourself' funeral it is worth considering what the process is likely to entail before you make any decisions.
