Naturally, people turn to NHFDA member funeral directors 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 a NHFDA member.
What to Expect
While it’s true that most people do not know what to do when a death has occurred, we believe this to be due to the simple fact that death comes into our lives less often than it did for our ancestors. After all, average life spans are significantly longer today, and our medical services vastly improved.
Let us take a moment to say we are so sorry for your loss. We hope that you will find this section of our website helpful in this difficult time. If you are looking for information on what to do now that a death has occurred, you have come to the right place. As always, if you would prefer to speak to someone directly, please contact us.
Planning your own funeral is not something that you may like to think about. In fact, we’re fairly confident that, if left to your own devices, you just might choose to avoid it altogether.
In fact, you could say we’re completely dedicated to serving anyone who is faced with the many challenges brought on by the death of a loved one. Never hesitate to reach out to us with your questions or concerns.
