3 Questions to Ask a Funeral Home

Published: July 12, 2023

Planning a funeral for a loved one can be complex, as you're grieving while given a limited period of time to plan a service. Fortunately, funeral homes are there to help you when it comes to planning celebrations of life. Here are three important questions to ask to help you find a trustworthy and reliable funeral home.

1. What Services Do You Offer?

One of the first questions that you need to ask a funeral home is what services they offer. For example, do they offer cremation or embalming services? Do they offer burial services? Can they help you plan a funeral at their facility or at your preferred church? You may also wonder about urn selection and how that process works. Always find out what services they offer and ensure they align with your needs. Proper professionals will help you every step of the way.

2. What's Included With Specific Services?

Another important inquiry is about what's included with specific services. For example, if you're paying for graveside memorial services, you want to find out if the service includes transporting the casket to the final location or whether that's separate. You also want to find out how many people can be present and if there are enough chairs or whether you need to pay for extras. Such details seem minute but are important.

3. When Can the Service Take Place?

The final question that you need to ask a funeral home is when the service can take place. This is especially important if your religious beliefs have specific time frames for funerals and burials. You want to ensure you can find a funeral home that's willing to accommodate your specific needs.

According to U.S. Funerals Online, around 2.4 million funerals occur each year. If you're in a position where you need to plan a funeral for a loved one, you don't have to complete the process on your own. A professional and experienced funeral home can help you make the final arrangements for your loved one and give them a proper goodbye.
