A funeral home works with the family of the deceased to arrange services. These may include a funeral, viewing, and visitation. Some funeral homes also have facilities for cremation.
When selecting a funeral home, consider individual requirements such as transportation of the body, embalming, viewing rooms, chapels, limousines, and hearses. Evaluate the size of the expected group of mourners, the ambience of funeral home, and the funeral director. It is common to choose a funeral home that is in a good location for visitation by family, friends and colleagues.
A funeral director will help to make arrangements, file appropriate paperwork, deal with doctors, ministers, florists, and newspapers, and attend to necessary details.
