Appearances are Important – Even After Death

You will be asked to provide clothing for your loved one. Ideally, this includes a full set of underclothes and outerwear. This can be a suit, dress, casual clothing, nightwear, sporting uniform or clothing that the deceased was happy wearing and which represents their personality. Glasses and dentures should also be supplied if they were usually worn. You are welcome to dress or assist with dressing if you wish to. 

A decision also needs to be made about what is to happen to any jewellery the deceased was wearing when they died. Care should be taken to check for any instructions about jewellery in the deceased’s will, in case there are specific bequests.
