How To Plan Funeral Services For A Family Member?


Planning funeral services can go a long way to make the final journey smoother for a departed family member, and here are some tips on proper planning for you.

The purpose of a funeral service is to bid adieu to the mortal remains of a loved one, and honor his life that has passed on. It can be formal, elegant, unique, and celebratory and anything in between. A funeral service is a special time for family members and loved ones of a deceased person. With proper planning at every step, you can make the process go seamlessly. Find out how you should plan funeral services in Las Vegas for a just departed family member.

 

Plan the Location

 

There are plenty of options when it comes to choosing a location for the final services, including at a funeral home, a church, at a cremation garden, in the home of a loved one, a memorial center or in the favorite spot of the one who has just passed away. You can hold the memorial service at home or in the garden rather than holding it at the chapel or the funeral ground.

 

Plan the Type Of Funeral

 

Keep in mind that you can either bury or cremate the body. Cremation services are considered to be cheaper and eco-friendlier, while burial is more elaborate and expensive. You should choose a type of funeral that respects the last wishes or preferences of the dear departed soul, and also takes care of the budget that you have. You will also have to decide whether a direct cremation – where the body is taken for cremation prior to the memorial service – is more preferable for you and other loved ones of the dead person.

 

Plan the Handling Of The Ashes

 

Spare some thought about how you would like to handle the ashes, following cremation. Would you like to cast, scatter in water, trench or scatter in air? You might even like to keep all the remains from the cremation in an urn to be kept at home or divide it into several urns to be kept by different family members. You might even like to spread the ashes in some spot that was meaningful for the departed soul.

 

Choose A Tombstone

 

However, if you prefer a burial for the loved one, you will have to choose a coffin and a tombstone. Keep in mind that gravestones take a lot of time to be engraved and you can be charged extra money if you want the services to be quick after death. It is advised that you opt for a tombstone in advance.
