Who should make the funeral arrangements?

The person charged with administering the deceased’s will – the executor – has the legal authority to make all funeral arrangements, however this responsibility can be passed on to the next of kin, other family member or friend, by mutual consent. The person who signs the appropriate authorisation for the funeral service is the only one who can make arrangements with the cemetery or crematorium, and will be responsible for the costs of the funeral.
