How to plan a funeral

Planning a funeral is something most of us will have to do at one point in our lives, but how do you do? Are you getting good value for your money? What do you really need?

There are two things to remember in planning a funeral. First, no one is going to charge you for asking questions. The second thing to remember is that you are in charge.

When a loved one dies,grieving family members and friends are often confronted with dozens of decisions about the funeral-all of which must be made quickly and often under great emotional duress. What kind of funeral should it be? What funeral home should you use? Should you bury or cremate the body,or donate it to science? What are you legally required to buy? What other arrangements should you plan? And as callous as it may sound, how much is it all going to cost?

There are two stages to arranging a funeral. In the first stage,work with your local funeral director to explore the options(you can also find information on this website.) Once you've made your choices and arranged the ceremony,the second step is to arrange the financing.

Planning a Funeral Ceremony

1. Determine the type of service.

.large or small ceremony
.Traditional ceremony or creative expression

Today,many families plan funerals that reflect the contributions accomplishments of the deceased.

2. Determine the final resting place. Do you want a cemetery plot? mausoleum?
Do you want to be cremated? If you choose cremation, what do you want done with your ashes?

Weighing the options in advance is better than making a rushed decision on this personal topic. What best fits your lifestyle and feelings?

With the help of your family-owned funeral home, funeral director, oyu can create a funeral that will be a personal and dignified tribute
