Way To Go is a funeral planning service that allows people to plan their perfect send-off, their way. It’s been created by funeral celebrant Julia Page who wants to encourage people to take more control of their funeral so it is exactly how they wish.
Julia, a former teacher, has seen so many loved ones confused and distressed due to the complexities of planning for a loved one’s funeral, that she created a service that lets you make all the necessary plans for your final send-off.
Customers can choose everything they want for their funeral, including the venue, music, readings, poems and photographs to be shown on the day. They can pick a special theme, choose music and readings, a funeral director and even record a video message to be shown to friends and family.
By taking all the planning into their own hands, Way To Go subscribers can reduce the pressure on family and friends to have to make big decisions at a time of great loss and grief AND have the peace of mind that their wishes will be known to their loved ones.
If they prefer not to share them with your loved ones, Way To Go generates a code which can be printed off and left with family or in solicitor’s paperwork/will. This code enables the reader to access a read-only copy of everything planned.
Way To Go costs £10 a year for each member, with the first year completely free of charge. For this annual charge, funeral plans can be stored, updated and shared at any time. In addition, 10% of the money paid will be donated to charities whose focus is end of life care.
