    Also on the organ donor register, so they can have / use whatever is worth having.

    Then I'm another one for the full on blazing Viking longship, which seems more popular on here than I'd anticipated.

    She will be too busy. What with hanging the washing and "bimbling" around welsh wales.

    I would like to be a donor but a) Mrs D is against it and b) I cant imagine anyone being interested in my bits although I may do a Ken Dodd and have a cucumber glued on next to a sign saying "the martians have landed"
    We are shortly going to have a natter with family about what happens when cloggs are popped.
    Kids will be financially ok and that pleases me.
    Our 2 "children" and the eldest grandchildren still talk affectionately about Mrs Ds Mum and I just hope they will all feel similar about us in years to come. If not I will come back and haunt the little barstewards

    remember to get the farmer to leave his bum sticking out of the ground. You'll need somewhere to park your bike when visiting the grave

    EDIT - damn, joke already used. Oh well

    Any useable bits donated to needy recipients, the rest cremated. Don't care about the ashes - they might be quite good for the flower beds in the back garden. (My brother in law keeps my sister's ashes on the bookshelf and talks to them, which I find rather sad.)

    Assuming I outlive my parents, the only family are my wife and son, and I'm an atheist, so a funeral seems a bit unnecessary, but I imagine (hope?) they will want to do something "formal" as a way of saying goodbye. I think 2 or 3 people are permitted to attend a straightforward, no-frills, disposal so that would seem the most likely option.

    I have a friend who runs non-religious and non-demoninational funerals. Assuming she outlives me, and has all her marbles, she'll be doing mine :okay: seeing as I am atheist :smile:

    Donor card carried.

    Once they've had what they want (if anything, as I hope its all well and truly knackered by the time I toddle off) then it's a cremation for me, no funeral service whatsoever and then ashes on Scout Scar Kendal where I have spent many happy hours wandering.

    Not yet decided what I'm coming back as. :smile:

    Best funeral I ever attended was a humanist ceremony. It's an odd thing to have a favourite of, but it was really excellent.
