UNDERSTANDING YOUR FUNERAL DIRECTOR

Funeral directors are people.  No two are the same.  It is our experience that funerals are very different from one to the next.  The funeral director has large impact on how a funeral is conducted.  Talking with a potential firm will enable you to make better decisions.  Be sure to ask questions and explain what your expectations are.

SELECTING THE RIGHT FIRM FOR YOU:  If you already have a personal relationship with your funeral director, then knowing if you wish to use them or not is simpler.

However, if you do not, then an interview with them is beneficial for everyone.  Asking questions on offerings, solutions, what type of services are available, and prepared solutions to cover your needs are topics to discuss.  Let them know what you are looking for.

Are you looking for a unique, traditional, or some new experience?  Would you like to discuss cremation, burial, and other option in your area?  If you are not sure, let the funeral director know.  They can provide suggestions.  This will help you find the service and budget that works for you.

A funeral director working in your best interest will have the right tools that go beyond information that is available through public search engines.  A good funeral director will have many sources that are hard to find or not available to the general public.  We would all like to believe that all funeral directors use sources that provide greater options.  However, remember the funeral directors are people.  So that is increasing not the case.

Asking questions is important and helps mitigate risks from working with a person who is not working in your best interest.  The questions will mitigate risk of exposure to deceptive practices, help with defining your needs, the next family needing assistance, and the funeral Industry as a whole.  We strongly encourage you to ask.  It helps us all.

HOW A FUNERAL DIRECTOR ASSISTS:  As in any industry, the funeral director utilizes resources beyond public venues, including internet search engines.  Some resources provide time savings.  Other resources provide items and sub contractors that are set to help with specific tasks to save monies and/or time.

Correctly used funeral industry resources, enable a funeral director to save you time, efforts, and money.  Allowing you to spend time with your family when it is needed most.

YOUR RELATION WITH A FUNERAL HOME:  A Funeral Home is a business.  Businesses are always in a state of change.  The majority owners have multiple locations today.  Keep in mind, owners, managers, or employed funeral directors, are people that live in your area and they make a living by assisting you at a difficult time.  Remember, a funeral director is a person.

We recommend talking with them.  Learn who & where they are.  Are they working with your needs in mind first?  Are they using competitive sources so that they can pass savings in time and money onto you?  Can they provide the options you want?

Your questions will help you avoid funeral directors and non licensed practitioners that use deceptive practices.  Questions will help provide you with the assistance that is to your benefit and satisfaction.

It is our wish for you to find options that work for you.  The educated consumer is the Funeral Industry's best clients.  So ask questions, look around.  We all like to work with our best clients.

If you are happy, then the entire death care industry is happy.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FUNERAL HOME, MORTUARY, & CREMATION SOCIETY?:  In general there are no differences.  In practice and options, there are many differences.  Most areas have licensing & laws in place to protect all parties involved.

Mortuary or Cremation Society is another way of saying what is typically thought of as a Funeral Home.  Businesses use words in their name to help attract clients.  Do not fall prey to a name that you feel offers something that is not there.  Ask questions.

Remember, businesses use words in their names to better describe the kind of goods and services they provide.

There is a general idea that an alternative service like a Cremation Society is less expensive.  Our research shows that is not necessarily the case.  Rates and services very greatly across all platforms.  With the increase in options, there is an increase in possible confusion.  We recommend taking your time and asking questions is your best course of action.

WHY A FUNERAL and WHY USE A FUNERAL HOME?:  A funeral, with the assistance of a funeral home, is an opportunity to increase the celebration for a life well lived.  To say "until we meet again."  If you are pleased with the service received, then the funeral home, funeral director, and supporting funeral businesses are pleased.  Simply put, if you are pleased, then the Death Care Industry is pleased.

Licensed funeral directors are bound by laws that protect all parties.  You will want to ensure you are working with a licensed establishment.  If you are not comfortable when talking with a funeral director during your initial meeting, you may want to try interviewing another location.  Remember, there are many options today to fit your budget and needs.

Feel free to use our Public Search to locate a firm of your choosing.

The Online Funeral Home Directory (and/or Mortuary Directory) provides a complete list of licensed Mortuary and Funeral Home establishments that work with the general public/end consumer.  Funeral Homes that specifically work in the Funeral to Funeral Business market are not shown in the Online Funeral Home Directory as they do not work directly with the end consumer.
