Frequently asked questions—Taree

It is our aim to guide and support you through this stressful and emotional time. With this information, we can arrange a meaningful funeral service for your loved one.

A. Yes, you can put almost anything in the coffin with your loved one, keeping in mind that if you have chosen a cremation you can not put anything in the coffin containing a battery, as this would pose a safety hazard for those performing the cremation. 

A. Whoever is listed as the informant on all paperwork will be responsible to pay the account.

A. Contact the person’s doctor. A doctor must certify that death has occurred. Normally funeral arrangements cannot be completed until the doctor has signed and issued a Death Certificate. The funeral director can then take the deceased into their care.

A: Cremation is often a much lower cost than the price for a burial, as you won’t have to pay for a burial plot or casket. There are also many memorial keepsakes available now to keep your loved one’s ashes with you. These can include necklaces and similar trinkets.

A: No. You always have the option of choosing your own venue. For instance, if your loved one was a member of a place of worship, you may arrange to hold the services there.
