We are campaigners fighting for more support for bereaved families, fairer funerals and ending poverty. In our blog we discuss issues and themes related to dignity, emotional support and affordablity in funerals.


When you think of a funeral – most think of a coffin, covered in flowers, driven in a hearse to a church or crematorium filled with mourners.

And for some people, that feels right.

But for others – that isn’t what they want for themselves or their loved one, but unfortunately, those people have felt like there isn’t any other option for a long time.

Times are now changing, and funerals are changing with them, which is good news!

Some people are passionate that as little money as possible is spent on their funeral.

Others prefer to focus on celebrating the person’s life, rather than making the funeral ceremony the focus of the goodbye.

More bereaved Scots are environmentally conscious now, and are committed to making their funeral as “green” as possible.

A lot of people want the goodbye to be personalised and as unique as the person they are saying goodbye to.

Where to start
