Fiona has recently registered her wishes with us. Fiona is religious and enjoys helping people and attending social gatherings. Here she explains why she has chosen Direct Cremation….
“I have never liked being centre of attention during my lifetime and I don’t want that to change after my death either! Also, in my experience of attending cremation services (religious or secular), they fail to provide comfort and seldom honour the person satisfactorily. I do not want anyone to feel the emptiness that I have had on leaving the chapel of a crematorium…within 30 minutes of arriving, of course!
The Caledonia Cremation Register of Wishes form helped to guide thoughts regarding what may have previously been the unthinkable and provided a useful start point towards creating a written document to record all details concerning desired funeral arrangements and avoid any misunderstandings or stress to those left behind.
Throughout my life, spirituality, helping others, music and social gatherings have been important to me and all those elements have been incorporated into my Register of Wishes. My hope is that the spiritual and social arrangements made will result in both a meaningful and enjoyable celebration of life to take place.
I would like attendees to have a positive spiritual experience, but this is not conditional on them recognising my religious beliefs! “
