Am looking for help on organising and planning my fathers funeral. He was diagnosed earlier this year with terminal cancer and at present don't know how long he's got left. He's an ex bootie who served for ..... Years. I can't give too much away on this forum as I know he reads it. Pleas pm me if you require service details which I would be glad to provide. Anyway, you know the saying, preparation prevents piss poor performance. I want to ensure he gets a decent send off to the great Naafi bar in the sky. Any useful hints on funeral tunes? I've got a few, Nimrod by Elgar, Life on the ocean wave, was thinking also of playing sunset when he is cremated. Is this tacky and should be avoided? I know he's still in touch with a fair few of his oppos who I hope will be in attendance to give him a decent send off. Any advice gratefully appreciated. Sorry for such a shit first post!
