Planning a funeral is a stressful and demanding task. It is something that cannot be predicted and can be tough to manage. The work will be less difficult if you are well prepared. Funerals are often quite hectic, with continual guests, family, and relations. This is why it is essential to seek assistance from specialists like us at Willowbrook Cemetery.

1. The Initial Steps

Experiencing the loss of a loved one is stressful and heart-breaking. However, it is essential to remember a few things while organizing a funeral. Inform family members of the issue by calling them. Contact the office in which they served. Follow the deceased's cultural and religious preferences. Establish a budget for everything including the funeral service and locate the appropriate funeral home. Determine whether the deceased shall be cremated or buried. These initial actions will facilitate your planning.

2. Final Disposition Planning

After the service, you have the choice of holding a reception or going to the cemetery. The cemetery provides a commitment service to aid with the burial. The service lasts around 15 to 20 minutes, during which members of the family and others pay their respects. If the decision has been made to bury the deceased, the casket will be slid into the grave. If cremation is to be performed, the family has the option of placing the urn in a columbarium or cemetery.

Since cremation is a considerably new trend many people do not have complete information about what is involved in it. At Willowbrook Cemetery, we strive to make selecting the process straightforward and the last resting place for a loved one as simple as possible. We are here to help you organize every little detail and provide you with information regarding the funeral and final disposition process.
