Arranging a Funeral.
On average, most people will arrange only two funerals in their lifetime. This limited
experience often leaves a family feeling inadequate, not knowing what to do or
what it costs. “Help! I’ve never done this before.” The question most people
ask is “What does everyone else do?” The human quest for normality seems to drive
our search for what is usual or average for others. When faced with the
unfamiliar feelings and the emotions that the death of a loved one brings, families have a
greater need for such security and normality.
Each person is unique in personality, likes and dislikes. Consequently, no two funerals will be the
same. They neither can nor should be. Good funeral directors are able to hear the needs, provide some options and
perform a service based on the uniquely personal decisions you make. Very few people ever give much thought to what
funeral directors do and how much time it takes to organise a funeral. On average, it takes between 24 and 36
hours. Thankfully, the funeral director does most of the work, leaving you time to gather as a family and support
each other in your early grieving. Here is some helpful information about arranging a funeral and the laws
governing funeral arrangements. At Integrity Funerals, we believe that knowledge is empowerment.
