People's views on burials, cremation, funerals and ways to commemorate life

Independent researchers have been talking with people across NSW about how prepared they are for death and how they’d like their lives to be remembered.

This important research is informing CCNSW activities to encourage more people in NSW to plan for their burial, cremation and funeral arrangements.

Thinking about what you would like to happen to your body after you die, and how you would like your life to be remembered, is something many of us put off until later.

  • Start thinking about what's important to me
  • Planning checklist
  • Take my first steps to plan
  • Know more about my options
