When you meet with your funeral director, the first arrangement is usually when all the decisions are made in regards to the funeral.
There is generally 2 parts to the arrangement process:
- Details needed for Births, Deaths & Marriages in order to lodge the death and obtain the Official Death Certificate
- The organising of the Funeral Service and the type of funeral that is to be held
The funeral director would then arrange a time and place for the celebrant, minister or priest to meet with your family so that you can discuss with them how you would like the service to take place in terms of the content.
The funeral director then starts to plan all your choices to ensure the day runs as smoothly as possible for your family and all who are attending. The funeral director can then begin to order flowers, organise music, vehicles, booklets, and see out all other requests.
See next page: Details we need for more information on the questions that are required from Births, Deaths & Marriages and the types of questions that we may ask in the arrangement.
