Final Fling: Best New Website Awards – 5 star!

“Packed with useful and well-researched information, this one-stop shop for end-of-life matters covers such topics as making a Will (which you can do here for £50), choosing a funeral plan and specifying the type of ceremony you want for your send-off. Most of the content can be browsed without registering, but if you sign up for free, you’ll be able to store photos, documents and personal data in a virtual vault that an appointed keyholder can access after you’ve gone. With its practical, clearly explained advice and interesting sections such as the ‘scrapbook’ of tributes and inspiring ideas, the site is neither morbid nor sentimental but emphasises the need to talk openly about death and dying, and helps you sort out your affairs before you pop your clogs.”
