About my SwanSong
Welcome to my SwanSong! By landing here you have taken a first and really positive step to managing your personal affairs, instructing your family of your funeral wishes and keeping your memory alive - all within the unique options my SwanSong offer to all our valued customers.
None of us know when we are going to die, in what circumstance or at what age.
Nothing is certain in life, except Death and Taxes
There are in the region of 1,650 deaths in the UK each day
my SwanSong was established in 2019 to provide a highly unique online platform, allowing all our customers to take control of their funeral wishes, their affairs and personal circumstances. History tells us that the whole subject of death and the stigma associated with discussing it, is one that often causes distress, anxiety and perhaps even conflict within families and friends. Disputes over possessions, funeral arrangements and finances are often at the heart of these disagreements. At a time when feelings are running high, making decisions which aim to reflect the deceased’s wishes and personality are often overridden or bypassed as tensions and emotions take over. Prior to any death, having those meaningful conversations can be hard, or often do not even take place. This is where my SwanSong will help.
Over more recent times, funerals are now becoming more and more a celebration of an individual’s life rather than a sad, morbid occasion. Here at my SwanSong, we feel that every funeral should be unique and fully representative of the person who has passed away. Modern technology is being used more and more, and time-served hymns and popular verse are now being replaced by music and personalised texts created within living memory and are often more representative and reflective of the life being celebrated.
In response to the COVID-19 situation threatening our world, my SwanSong have greatly reduced the cost of membership, from a one-off lifetime payment of £129, to just £1 per membership per year. This offer will last until 31st August 2020 and will be reviewed. All members have access to a comprehensive variety of differing options across our site. All areas are secure, user-friendly and designed to ensure that on their passing, their affairs and their legacy are managed sensitively and appropriately, within a timely and professional manner that takes away the strain, worry and removes potential for any future disputes.
As a Member, all our valued customers will have unlimited and unrestricted full access to their data, to review, update and amend at no additional cost, reflecting any changes and wishes that our busy and complex lives dictate. Whilst this is not a legal Last Will and Testament, to even contemplate maintaining this level of instruction under a Will would involve costly amendments every time, so this really is the way forward in managing all aspects of your changing personal wishes and circumstances.
