What do Funeral Directors do for a Family
When a loved one passes away, you have to manage a number of different things. In addition to planning the funeral service, you need to inform family and friends about the demise, organize for the transportation etc. Tackling all these things can seem quite daunting at the time and a funeral director can take a lot of this burden off of your shoulders. A funeral director at Arbutus Funeral Service can offer a number of different services such as:
- Counselling - Funeral directors have business associations with experienced grief counsellors. The latter can help counsel you in your time of grief.
- Documentation - When a person passes away there is a significant amount of documentation that needs to be completed and a funeral director is knowledgeable enough to provide you with the information you need. They will also help with actually filling out all the paperwork if needed.
- Burial arrangements - Funeral directors manage the tasks associated with organizing the burial. If there are any particular preferences you have such as cremation etc. the funeral director will arrange for those too.
- Funeral service planning - This professional will have detailed discussions with you about how you want the service organized and will ensure that the catering, flower arrangements, music and everything are planned and managed as per your requirements.
Expert funeral directors will keep the communication lines open and work closely with the family right through the process as well as after the funeral. Families sometimes turn to the funeral director even after the service, especially for grief counselling information and related services.
