When the death of a loved one occurs, it can be a very difficult and distressing time. If there are no prior arrangements in place there will be many decisions that need to be made and your Funeral Director’s job is to guide you through this process.
Our professional and caring staff at Heritage & Heritage Funerals will be able to advise and guide you through all aspects of planning a funeral. Some of the major decisions that need to be made include:
- Choice of burial or cremation
- The day, time and venue of the service
- Who is to lead the service – a member of the clergy or a celebrant, or a family member or friend?
- Is a viewing appropriate?
- What sort of coffin or casket?
- Who will carry the casket?
- What kind of music will we have?
- Who will prepare a eulogy?
- What flowers, if any would be most appropriate?
- Would you like to place a notice in a paper? Which paper?
- Would you like to arrange for people to be able to make donations to a particular charity in honour of the person?
