Your views on funeral rites and memorialisation are important to us.  Your responses to this survey will inform us how best to provide for your needs.   The survey will take around 5 minutes to complete.

While the research involves little or no risk, safeguards and precautions will be undertaken so that the research is both academically valuable and ethically sound.  If any questionnaire items cause discomfort, participants are encouraged to skip or withdraw the questionnaire.  All data collected as part of this questionnaire will be treated according to strict confidentiality protocols and held in secure storage at Monash University.  More information can be found on the project website
