A funeral director can help with all aspects of the funeral planning process. As well as being able to provide advice about pre-payment plans, they can also help families who have lost a loved one make arrangements for the service. The support they provide also encompasses details after the service, ensuring that guidance is provided every step of the way.
Before the funeral takes place, a funeral director can help with paperwork as well as put death notices in a local newspaper if you wish. They can also take care of the body by transferring it to the funeral home, where it can be kept until the service takes place. They can help with arranging a suitable coffin and cask and the dressing of the body before the service takes place too.
A funeral director can also ensure all necessary arrangements are taken care of on the day of the funeral itself. These include making sure the requested music is in place, organising funeral transport, booking catering and a venue for after the service. In addition, they can produce order of service sheets if required as well as arranging flowers. They can also donations in place of flowers and ensure that these are passed onto a nominated charity for you. After the service they can assist with having ashes placed in a casket or being scattered too.
