Funeral self help DIY book

Our Funeral Self-help Book – Funerals Your Way


Sarah wrote her first book “Funerals Your Way – a Person-Centred Approach to Planning a Funeral”  in September 2018 because she wanted to give people the information they need to help them to feel in control at a time that can be very challenging and bewildering.  All proceeds from the book are being donated to Leeds Bereavement Forum and the hospices in the local area.

This short book gives you the knowledge, suggestions and step-by-step guidance you need to create funerals which truly reflect the person who has died.  It will help you if you want to express your own wishes, want to have a meaningful conversation with someone close to you or if you need to arrange a funeral at need.  It is designed to support people who intend to use the services of a funeral director but would also give inspiration to those who would rather not.

“Clearly written, with a focus on permission-giving, Sarah’s step-through-guide very much reflects the ethos and approach of Final Fling – do it your own way. I think it will be a valuable resource for those who are looking for reassurance and hand-holding, especially if a death is imminent and they are using reading as a way of preparing for the inevitable funeral.”
Barbara Chalmers, Founder, Final Fling end-of-life planning website

“If you’re looking for information on how to help families better personalise funerals, this great new book by Sarah Jones, of SAIF member Full Circle Funerals, is just the ticket. It is thoughtful, creative and very helpful to think about your wishes for end of life planning to make it easier for your next of kin as well as honouring your preferences.
Also, it’s currently a best seller on Amazon no less!”
Terry Tennens
Chief Executive, National Society of Allied & Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF)

“Really well written and useful guide to planning a personalised funeral. The action points at the end of each section means you end up with your own plan and ensures you’ve thought of everything.”
Nicholas Taimitarha

“A beautifully written, gently empowering and insightful book. I didn’t expect to read a book like this, but I’m so glad that I did. Sarah offers a wealth of information and options and is clearly an experienced professional in this area. Highly recommended.
Andie Harrrison
