The Service Details
Now that you have thought about burial versus cremation for your loved one, it is time to think about what you would like the service to look like and represent.
The Location of the Service
Is there a special place that your loved one would like to have his or her final goodbye? There are many options to holding a service for the deceased. It can be held in your church, our chapel or a community hall. This is where you can rely heavily on our funeral directors to help create a memorable service.
Pallbearers are the people whom you chose to carry the casket at the funeral service, if there is a casket present. Have you thought about whom you will honour with this responsibility?
Who Will Be Officiating the Service?
If you have a church home, this decision won't be very difficult. For those who wish to have a minister officiate but don't have a formal connection to a particular church, we can help you find a minister who will meet your need and expectations.
Other Decisions to Be Made
There are a number of other decisions that will need to be made for the service. You will need to decide which flowers will be used, the type of music to be played, if there will be transportation to and from the service for family, if there will be people speaking of stories or memories of the deceased, if there will be a eulogy, and any other special elements that may reflect the life of your loved one.
Notifying Others of the Death
There is likely a list of people who were important to your loved one. Preparing a list of who should be notified of his or her passing will be beneficial to you when making the arrangements. Funeral homes today have a number of ways of notifying people in the community and beyond of the death. Speak to us about these options.
