Customer: replied 4 years ago.
i simply want to send flowers and visit her in the cspel of rest. And i want to do a reading at thr service
Expert:  Clare replied 4 years ago.
Hi
You can contact the Crematorium on Monday and they will tell you the name of the Funeral Director.
This will enable you to deal with the first two issues
With regard to the reading the fact is that it is up to either of you to arrange the funeral - neither of you has more right than the other to do so.
Whilst an application to the Court is possible the cost will be high - and if the only dispute is over a reading you need to consider whether or not it is worth the distress and cost it will cause you.
If you do feel that strongly then you will need to apply to the court on Monday
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
