Game of Thrones


Planning your funeral is often a hard thing to comprehend especially whilst healthy. However, when someone unexpectedly passes away arranging a funeral in keeping with the deceased's wishes is often made more stressful when things haven't been documented. 


Hoster Tully's funeral in the CBO TV Series 'Game of Thrones' serves as a reminder for the following:

  1. Make sure that your funeral wishes have been written down and given to someone you trust
  2. State what kind of ceremony you would  like (religious, traditional, celebration of life etc)
  3. Document whether you would like to be buried, cremated, other.
  4. State where you would like your final resting place to be.
  5. Clearly articulate any other ceremonial preferences that you may have (such as songs, what people should  wear etc)
  6. If you are an organ donor keep the relevant documentation in a safe place and tell friends where the safe place is.
  7. Choose someone reliable to help and assist with your funeral
