Funeral arrangements can be a very complex procedure which many of us have never encountered before. It is important to remember that every funeral and the circumstances surrounding it is different, therefore the procedures that have to be completed can be vastly different in each case. It is important to make contact with the funeral director as soon as possible following the death to discuss your requirements and to ensure that the correct action is being taken at the right time.
One of our funeral directors will meet with you either in the funeral home or in your own home to discuss the arrangements with you, and he will be responsible for ensuring that every aspect of the arrangements is carried out according to your wishes, through to the point of being there on the day personally to conduct and oversee the funeral ceremony itself at a time mutually agreeable to all parties involved. He will also provide advice on registration of the death and other legal procedures which have to be followed.
There are no “rights” or “wrongs” when it comes to making funeral arrangements – every funeral is personal and unique, forming a dignified and fitting tribute to the deceased. There are a great many decisions to be made at the point of making the arrangements which the funeral director will go through in detail with you.
