Funeral Arrangements and More
The passing of a family member can lead to many confusing and difficult decisions for the survivors. Making determinations on how to proceed with the Decedent’s funeral and other last wishes can become a challenging and costly guessing game.
With burial instructions, the family will be able to clearly understand and follow through with the Decedent’s specific wishes with respect to any religious needs, where and how to publish information on his or her death, funeral arrangements and how to handle disposition of the Decedent’s body. Not taking these measures to delineate your wishes can cause more turmoil during an already challenging time for your family. If an individual is not designated to make these arrangements, one will be assigned which can cause more difficulties.
Some considerations to include in burial instructions include:
Your wishes regarding cremation, burial, embalmment
Which facility will handle burial or cremation
Transportation of your remains from the chosen facility
Funeral ceremony wishes
Type of marker or tombstone
Any religious or cultural acknowledgements/rituals
