Funeral Home & Cremations FAQs
What is it called when you plan your funeral in advance?
Making decisions and arrangements for a funeral in advance of your passing is becoming increasingly popular in the US. This practice, known as 'preplanning,' allows you to shape nearly every aspect of your service - from selecting caskets or urns to picking pallbearers, memorial music or readings; even writing one's own eulogy. Pre-need planning gives peace of mind that whatever final wishes are laid out will be carried out accordingly after death.
What is the difference between a mortuary and a funeral home?
Although mortuaries and funeral homes provide similar services related to death care, there are subtle nuances that separate one from the other. Mortuaries have licensed staff who specialize in arranging funerals and assisting with any additional needs for those mourning a loss such as organizing viewings or transportation of their loved ones' remains. On the other hand, funeral homes can be more focused on preparing bodies for burial through cremation or embalming duties along with providing general assistance throughout all stages of grief-related activities required after a passing has occurred.
How do I prepare for a funeral checklist?
Here is a checklist of things to do to prepare for a funeral: get the paperwork ready; choose who will help plan the service; decide what you want at the service; figure out how you want to remember the person who died (for example, by cremation or burial); and make sure all the payments are taken care of.
