ELGIN funeral director WG Catto is aiming to support people in dealing with their "digital death".

Before lockdown, Facebook reported that within the next decade or so they anticipate having more accounts of those no longer alive than those who are.

Dealing with the digital legacy left behind by someone close can be complex and painful.

However, WG Catto, who have been supporting generations in the Moray area with their funeral planning, have a range of free resources available to help with this.

They have created a free guide to managing your Digital End of Life which you can be downloaded from wgcatto.co.uk/digital-death.

Containing helpful and practical advice, the funeral director has included links to specific pages to set up your own digital will, or to sites where you can record key details in a protected place.

To have all your affairs in order, including your digital legacy, is such a kindness towards those who will be wrestling with – and confused by – their grief at the time of your death.

WG Catto’s planning ahead resources are free – wgcatto.co.uk/thinking-ahead – and copies are also available from their Linkwood funeral home.

Members of the public are welcome to meet the team at WG Catto to discuss plans.
