Questions To Ask Funeral Directors

Funeral directors can help with any stage of the process when someone dies. It can sometimes be difficult planning and organising when someone has passed, as there’s quite a lot to know about. If you have never organised a ceremony before, then you are bound to have questions about the process. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, because good funeral directors will be willing to help.

What Kind Of Services Do The Funeral Directors Offer?

There are many types of ceremonies to choose from, it’s important to make sure they can arrange the one that you’re looking for. If you want a religious ceremony, it may be important to you that they have experience with that faith.

What Sort Of Transport Do The Funeral Directors Offer?

Whether you want a traditional hearse to carry a loved one or want to opt for something more tailored to their character, it’s good to know what’s on offer. At Albert E Hicks, we have a fleet of cars available. This includes limousines that can transport friends or family to the service and then to the wake afterwards.

Where Will The Deceased Be Held Until The Funeral?

Typically, a loved one will rest in the funeral home before a cremation or burial. Albert E Hicks has a Chapel Of Rest, where if you choose to, you may want to say your final farewells in a private and calm atmosphere.

Can Your Funeral Directors Personalise The Ceremony?

Funeral Directors have lots of experience with many different types of ceremonies. Often, they’ll have loads of ideas to help personalise a service. This can make a send-off unique and memorable, so make sure you let them know what you want.

Can We Choose When The Service Is?

You don’t have to go with the first date and time you are offered. However, keep in mind that crematorium or cemetery appointments usually get booked up first in the middle of the day. If you have a specific date and time you would like to hold the service, make sure to ask the funeral directors.

What Is And Isn’t Included?

There are many things to consider when organising a service. You’ll want to know whether they will liaise with all the third-party businesses that may be involved in the day. This can help ensure the ceremony runs smoothly. You should know exactly what is included in the service, and costs, by law, should be transparent so you know exactly what is involved.
