What To Expect Before The Funeral
If a loved one has passed away, one of the first things you would have to do is start planning the funeral service. If you have never handled a similar task in the past, you would not know what process to follow. Here are some pointers that can help:
Consult With a Funeral Director
It is best to get in touch with a reputable Funeral home and set up a consultation with the funeral director. These professionals are experienced and know the ins and outs of all the processes involved in planning and organizing a funeral service. They will handle every aspect of the job and provide you with all the details that you need about what is involved in planning one.
Whether you need arrangements for transporting the body or have to get a death certificate, they will help you every step of the way. They will also assist with planning the actual funeral service and arrange for the burial plot if required.
Information You Would Need to Provide
While the funeral director will organize everything, they would still require some basic information from you. It is necessary to be prepared so that the process is completed seamlessly. You would have to take some paperwork with you to identify the decedent and whether you are authorized to plan the funeral. Some of the pieces of information that you would have to provide the funeral director include:
- The Full Name Of The Decedent
- Their Parent's names
- Names Of Their Spouse And Children
- Marital Status
- Educational History
- Work History
- Religious Affiliation
- Recent Photographs
If they need any other specific information, they will tell you about it when you have the first consultation with them.
