Funeral Planning

Naturally, people turn to us every day to assist them in planning a funeral. Sometimes it’s because a loved one has recently died, and their need is immediate. Other times, they turn to us because they wish to plan ahead; either for themselves, or for someone they love.

In this section, we have put together the basics for those of you faced with an immediate need of our services. This includes information on what is involved in planning a funeral, what to expect when you meet with a Funeral Director, how to select the right products. There is also information on what you can expect after the funeral or memorial service.

However, if you need more in-depth information, and wish to speak to someone directly, we invite you to contact us.
