Funeral Planning Guide
Naturally, people turn to us every day to assist them in planning a funeral service. Sometimes it’s because a loved one has recently died, and their need is immediate. Other times, they turn to us because they wish to talk to us about funeral pre-planning. If you're looking to make funeral arrangements ahead of time for either yourself, or for someone you love, consult our plan ahead section.
In this funeral planning guide section, we have put together the basics for those of you faced with an immediate need of our services. This includes information on what is involved in planning a funeral, what to expect when you meet with a Funeral Director, and how to select the right funeral products. There is also information on what you can expect after the funeral or memorial service.
However, if you need more in-depth information on funeral service planning, and wish to speak to someone directly, we invite you to contact us.
