Six Things To Consider When Making Funeral Arrangements
The death of a loved one can often leave you feeling devastated and distressed. Funeral arrangements can add even more stress and it is during that time that you need guidance to ensure the funeral service will run smoothly. Bryan J Reid Funeral Services Sydney will provide guidance and support to alleviate the stress that accompanies funeral arrangements. Here are five of the most important things you need to consider when arranging a funeral.
- Cremation or Burial
Deciding whether to cremate or bury your loved one is one of the first things you need to consider when arranging a funeral. If your loved one had expressed their final wishes to you this will be an easier decision.
- Casket Choice
The casket will likely be the most expensive item of the funeral. A variety of caskets are available to choose from including cloth covered caskets, steel caskets and hardwood caskets. The choice of the casket can evoke a lot of emotion but Bryan J Reid Funeral Director Sydney will help you to make the best choice.
- Location and Time of the Service
The venue for the funeral service is equally important. You will need to decide if you want the funeral service to be kept at a church or a funeral chapel. Once you’ve decided on the venue for the funeral service, you will also need to decide the time of day that the service will take place.
- Who Will Conduct the Funeral Service
It is traditional to have a member of the clergy to conduct a funeral service. However, a celebrant or a family member can also conduct your loved one’s funeral service.
While flowers aren’t able to bring back the deceased, they play an important role in making the bereavement process a bit more bearable. Careful thought must be taken when choosing flowers for a funeral service. This is because different flowers have different meanings. Some of the most popular funeral flowers are carnations, lilies and chrysanthemums.
Music is an important element of the funeral service. This is because it can impact on the overall mood of the funeral service. If your loved one had music favourites, you may also wish to include them as a part of the funeral service.
