Funeral Burial Planning
Our professional and caring staff are available 24/7 to assist you with your funeral needs.
Key Details to Consider
What type of funeral:
Burial or Cremation?
Burial plot or crematorium?
Location or venue
If you’re planning a funeral you’ll need a location for the funeral service itself and for a memorial service should you choose to have one. Many also choose to spread ashes in a place that’s important to their loved one, so it’s important to consider that as well.
The location you choose can vary, from funeral homes, a chapel, church or place of worship, private property, a public space like a park or beach, or by the graveside. Each has different considerations, such as cost, regulations, accessibility, and more.
Planning the Funeral Itself
What kind of funeral service is it?
Who is officiating and speaking at the funeral service?
What kind of music will be played?
Who will be attending the funeral service?
Other Essential Considerations
Finally, there are several details you’ll want to work out, including things like whether you’ll need a coffin or urn, a grave marker or headstone, transportation for your family, flower, photos, notices in local news, and more. You may also want to consider catering if it’s going to be a longer event.
Don’t let this overwhelm you though, this is what we do best! Your funeral director and our team are available at all times to assist you with all your needs.
Of course, many of the things on this page aren’t essential and it will come down to you and your family’s preferences. This can be an emotional and confronting time, so it’s important to take things only as fast as you need to and make sure everyone has the time to give their input. Discussing the details with family and family friends is important, especially when it comes to honouring your loved one’s memory in the best way possible.
