- What sort of coffin or casket?
- Who will carry the coffin or casket?
- Who will prepare a eulogy?
- What flowers would be most appropriate for the coffin and/or church?
- Would you like a funeral notice placed in the newspaper? Which newspaper?
- Donations to a charitable organisation in lieu of flowers
- Tea to be served following the service, and if so, where?
- What special things can be done to personalise the ceremony?
- If a cremation was conducted, what to do with the ashes following the cremation
