What To Discuss During the Funeral Arrangement Meeting
Organizing a funeral service is never easy and it does require a significant amount of planning. The one way to ease the process is to discuss all your requirements with the funeral director at Arbutus Funeral Service:
- Range of options- There are a number of decisions that come into play when it comes to funeral planning. You can decide whether you want to have a cremation or a burial. If the decedent had left behind some instructions or had pre-planned or pre-paid for their funeral, then you would have fewer decisions to make. A funeral director can help you make the right choice and plan everything down to the last detail.
- Who will be the decision maker- The person who would be making the final decision is the one with the most responsibility as well. He or she would have to fill out all the paperwork and sign for everything, settle the person’s estate and more. If the deceased person had named an executor, then that person would be the one managing this aspect.
- Determine what the funeral costs would be- it doesn’t take long for funeral costs to start to pile up, which makes it important to allocate a budget and stick to it. The funeral director will provide various options for different services and that will help you decide which ones you would like to opt for and which fit into your budget.
- Plan the service- A funeral service would have to be planned carefully and you need to decide what type of music you will play, the flowers, whether you will have some media content played and display photos and more.
