There is no wrong way to have a home funeral. Ultimately it will reflect what is meaningful to you and your family. However, there are practical issues you’ll want to prepare for like caring for the body. A helpful step-by-step guide to all aspects of planning a home funeral can be found here.

Additional information regarding preparing and dressing a body are outlined here, on the National Home Funeral Alliance website.

A home funeral guide (also known as a doula or midwife) is never required, although if your family is looking for help and advice through the death, hiring a guide might be a good choice for your family. Clarity can recommend one to you.

Please contact Clarity Funerals if you have questions on the process, we’re happy to advise you further.
