As part of Dying Matters Awareness Week (May 12 – 18), NHS West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is encouraging people to think about what they want to happen after they die. Having plans in place is important.

On Tuesday 13 May and Wednesday 14 May, Southport Crematorium will be holding open days to provide everyone of all ages with the information they need to help with making a decision. The open days aim to offer people who are anxious or curious about crematorium services the chance to discuss concerns and find out more about what happens.

Staff will be on hand to take you around the crematorium from 11:30am to 3:30pm and answer any questions you might have.

Dying Matters Awareness Week is a national campaign that aims to promote planning ahead by taking simple steps to make end-of-life experiences better for all concerned. These steps include:

– Writing a will
– Recording your funeral wishes
– Planning your future care and support
– Considering registering as an organ donor
– Telling your loved ones your wishes
