Deciding if You Should Choose a Privately-Owned Funeral Home

Published: August 1, 2023

End-of-life planning can be challenging, and for some people, confusing. You want to make the best possible choices for your loved one, or for yourself if you are pre-planning your end-of-life details. One important detail you will want to consider is whether you should hire a privately owned funeral home or a chain. According to Webinar Care, about 90% of funeral homes in the United States are owned privately by families or individuals. Let's look at some of the benefits of using a privately owned business.

Local Connection
A benefit of working with a privately owned funeral home is that you can depend on the community connection of working with a well-established family locally. By being a local and private provider, they are more likely to understand local nuance and community traditions and values. By understanding the community, they are able to provide a more personalized and comfortable experience for those grieving.

Personal Attention
When you work with a local family in your community for funeral services, you will get an unparalleled level of personalized attention and care. This can be very important during this difficult time. Rather than just being another appointment on a busy schedule, working with a local establishment ensures that your needs and emotions are met with the consideration and care they deserve.

Authentic Business Practices
A privately owned funeral home will also have the flexibility and liberty to create its own authentic business practices free from the pressure of external shareholders. This means that the people you are working with are the ones calling the shots. You don't get lost in the numbers like you would if you were dealing with a big chain funeral home. You can take your issues right to the owners.

Our Special Touch
We have several services available to make us stand out from competitors. We produce a personal tribute video that will be available in person and online. All we need are your chosen photographs, which we will add to your video celebration. We also offer the ability for friends and family to make monetary donations to help ease the financial burden. On top of this, we're partnered with local florists to make it easy for friends and family to send flowers, and we include daily grief support emails to your family for free.
