Our purpose is to help you plan a funeral service that suits your exact wants and needs.
How to choose a funeral director?
- Look at reviews and testimonials on the funeral director’s website. This will give you a good idea of the quality of their funeral planning services.
- Decide beforehand what you would like your funeral planning company to help you with. You may have some funeral service details in mind already, like the type of flowers, the type of burial, or the funeral service order. But there may be other elements that you are less sure of, like paperwork, death certificate, or headstones.
- Make a funeral checklist of those requirements. This way, you can be as clear-minded as possible when meeting your funeral director.
- Compare your options. Look at more than one funeral director’s website. When you choose a funeral service director, make sure they understand the exact funeral service order you have in mind. A good funeral director is a good listener. They are also personable, and they show empathy. Above all, they are happy to meet with you (whether at a branch or in your home) to talk to you about your funeral service needs.
