Funeral Management

When your loved one passes, you contact not only the people involved in that person's life, but those who can help manage all the planning, service, and arrangements.

Depending on the circumstances, the attending physician or coroner is called, if the deceased was in a hospital or care facility. In unknown circumstances, the local law enforcement may have to be called. Attorneys are typically called to deal with estate management and funeral planning, if it is in the Will.

After these necessary individuals, the selection of individuals to handle funeral management varies according culture. In a traditional funeral, the Funeral Director will manage much of the planning. He or she will manage the viewing in the funeral home or wherever the deceased or family has chosen. The priest or preacher needs to schedule the church service. Calling the local newspaper is optional, but it will make others aware of the time and place of the funeral service. In the Jewish tradition, after the family has stayed with the deceased, the Rabbi should be called. The Rabbi usually makes the arrangements, accordingly.

To prevent pitfalls to an otherwise appropriate occasion, some terms and facts need elucidated. Funeral Directors need to be part of the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) or the Society of the Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF). If they are not, it may not be wise to select them. Be also aware that "family-trusted" funeral homes are actually part of conglomerates, reaping the benefits from the longstanding names.

Otherwise, there are plenty of legitimate Funeral Directors who will assume funeral management responsibilities and guide you step by step through the process of selecting a casket, having the viewing, selecting the disposition, and choosing the types of gravestones and flowers. Not every single decision is left in your hands. Funeral Directors tend to be sensitive and will guide you through the process: and you can freely ask questions.

If the funeral and service are personalized, then there is much more freedom. Cremation, burial at sea, home-viewings, can not only be inexpensive, but easier to manage. Personalized funerals leave the management in your hands. If, in the Will, the deceased requests a certain type of personalized funeral, the Attorney will, ahead of time, make sure the funeral is legal with the local, state, and federal law.

A funeral and all its arrangements can be overwhelming in times of need and comfort. Grief can overcome you and your loved ones. If the Will does not stipulate the arrangements and the cemetery plots and caskets have not already been purchased, then it makes the process even more difficult. While Funeral Directors, Attorneys, and others may help in funeral management, a trusted friend or loved ones will ultimately make the final decisions.

    the best books out there with funeral flwroes are the wire service books. go on ebay and look for teleflora or ftd books that florists may be selling. if you are decorating the funeral home, is it for business purposes so clients will order from you or is it for the purpose of general decorating? i am curious, if you are doing this as a business, why dont you already have the books or pics of past work you have done. clients do not want to see a picture book they want to see pics of what you have done.for decorating the funeral home, subtle arrangements in the color scheme that will coordinate with funeral homes style . there is no special decorating involved
