There are times in our lives when we must make decisions we never anticipated making. This is especially true when it comes to making funeral arrangements. Planning a funeral can be a very difficult process, financially, emotionally and physically. Thankfully there are some funeral homes that are here to help you every step of the way. When searching for a funeral home to help with your particular situation make sure they offer all of the services that you need. Ask these questions to be sure that you’re getting exactly what you and your loved one wants.
Do they offer the style of burial you need, cremation or burial?
If the deceased had made a direct request for either a burial or cremation make sure the funeral home can accommodate the request. Not all funeral homes will be able to provide cremation services. If you want a special service, such as a green burial or military burial, be sure the funeral home can provide those options.
Do they offer various caskets and urn styles?
Be sure that the home you’re planning to work with can offer the type of burial container that fits the wishes of the deceased, and your budget. From plain pine to elegant metal caskets, to simple ash containers to beautifully decorated urns, do they offer what you’re looking for to honor your loved one?
Do they offer pickup of the deceased?
Ask the funeral home if they can pick up the deceased from their final resting place. They should be available 24/7 at no extra charge and if the loved one is out of state, they should be able to help arrange transportation to bring the them home.
Do they have affordable funeral services?
The costs of funeral services can add up greatly, but they don’t have to. Funeral Alternatives of Snohomish offers affordable services for both cremations and graveside burials.
