Before you go to the funeral home to plan a cremation, you should ensure you’re prepared for the appointment. This means knowing what sorts of questions you’ll be asked and ensuring you have the right answers so that everything flows smoothly. You’ll still get the help you need if you’re simply not sure of certain things ahead of the meeting, but you’ll find that things will be easier if you head into the meeting knowing what you want. Here’s a look at some questions to be ready for ahead of the meeting with a Savage, MN cremation services provider.
What Sort of Services do You Want?
This may very well be the most important question. You need to know what you want. Sure, you can wait until you go to the planning appointment, talk t the funeral director, and then make a choice based on the suggestions and feedback you get. But you can speed up the process if you spend some time beforehand thinking about what would be best for your deceased relative.
Of course, if your deceased loved one had let you or another loved one know what service they wanted, your job will be a whole lot easier. It’s much simpler to follow their instructions than it is to guess what they would have wanted.
How Will You Pay for the Service?
If you’re lucky, your deceased loved one preplanned their own body disposition and made arrangements for payment. That will free you and your other family members from the responsibility of covering the body disposition charges. But if no such arrangements were made in advance, you and your loved ones will have to decide amongst yourselves how you will pay for it. The good news is that choosing cremation services means you’ll pay a lot less than if you choose funeral services. So the financial outlay will be more manageable, especially if the costs are divvied up among multiple family members.
What Will You do with the Ashes?
Assuming you’ll be going with cremation, you’ll need to decide what to do with the ashes. If you intend to hold onto the ashes as a keepsake, you’ll want an appropriate urn. The funeral home you work with will be able to help you get what you need. If you plan to scatter the ashes, the funeral home will be able to help you get an urn that makes scattering the ashes easy. You might be surprised at the range of scattering options available. If you need recommendations, then ask the funeral home.
