Arranging a funeral is an acutely personal journey for those involved. There always seems to be a great deal to achieve in a short space of time, while dealing with the many emotions which couple themselves to the loss.
A funeral is a reflection of a person who has died, and a reflection of those who are left behind. There are no right and wrong answers, no boundaries present by the funeral service, but instead, a blank canvas onto which ideas are written, and wishes expressed. Nothing is set in stone, except the goal of achieving a funeral service fitting of the dead, and thus, of great comfort to the living.
The Funeral director’s role is to facilitate the needs of the families they serve. We are only restricted by our imaginations, funeral directors have vast experience in bringing these imaginings to reality. They strive to achieve not only the highest standards of care but the many and varied elements to each funeral in which they are involved.
Take your time to make fundamental choices of burial or cremation, types of coffins, venues, types, and colour of cars, to the more intricate details of flowers, an order of service, music, and content.
When you receive quotations and proposal from the different funeral directors, make sure you speak to them and find out if they are right for you and ask how they are going to fulfill the wishes in your plan.
A good Funeral Director brings professionalism coupled with compassion, empathy, and respect. After the funeral please make sure you give us feedback to help other people in the same position.
