What kind of funeral services are offered
When a loved one dies, the last thing you want to do is have to deal with making funeral arrangements. But it's a necessity. Working with a funeral parlor will give you lots of options.
Casket or urn
One of the first decisions you have to make is whether your loved one wanted to be buried or cremated. Cremation is cheaper, but some people are put off by it and it is against some religions. If your loved one is cremated, you will need to pick out an urn. If the decision is burial, you will need to choose a casket. The choices range from plain wooden boxes that cost a few hundred dollars to metal caskets costing thousands of dollars.
If you or your loved one attended a church, you likely will have the service there. If not, most cemeteries and funeral homes have their own chapels you can use for a funeral although you will be charged to use them.
If you choose regular burial in a casket, you will need to purchase a plot in a cemetery if your loved one didn't already have one. An urn with ashes can be buried or you can keep it and put it in your home.
Funerals are a lot of work, but the good news is that if you work with a funeral home, the staff there will do most of the work for you, which lessens the burden you have to deal with at what is a very difficult time for most people.
