Arranging A Funeral

Arranging Funeral Services for a Loved One

When a loved one passes away, there are numerous considerations to bear in mind, ranging from organizing the funeral to managing their personal affairs. The deceased might have expressed their desires regarding the funeral service, or it may fall upon you to make the necessary arrangements.

What questions should we expect when making funeral arrangements?

The first consideration would be whether your loved one has expressed their preference for burial or cremation, either verbally or in their will, if applicable. Other factors to address include:

  • Burial, Cremation or Repatriation
  • Determining the location of the funeral service
  • Exploring options, availability, and booking of the venue and schedule
  • Deciding where the deceased should rest before the service
  • Selecting the individual(s) to conduct and speak at the funeral
  • Planning the transportation arrangements for the funeral procession
  • Choosing between a religious or secular service
  • Selecting a suitable coffin or casket
  • Incorporating personalization elements into the service
  • Publishing newspaper and online notices
  • Considering floral tributes or donations to charity
  • Arranging for the dressing of the deceased
  • Identifying the individuals who should be notified of the death
  • Creating a guest list for the funeral
  • Addressing administrative requirements
  • Understanding the associated costs of the funeral

If you have financial concerns regarding the funeral expenses, please don’t hesitate to discuss them with our funeral arranger. We can provide information about available support services to assist you during this time.
