Funerals are an important part of the healing process. They allow family members to say goodbyes, gain some solace, and honor a loved one’s memory. The funeral home plays a vital role in this process, helping family members make all necessary arrangements. Wagg Funeral Home is a family-owned establishment and we do our best to provide compassionate service to clients.

Advantages of Working with a Family-Owned Funeral Home

Family-owned establishments offer several distinct benefits that corporate-owned homes can’t provide. Here’s a look at some of these distinctive characteristics:

  • Compassionate Service – Small establishments often have deeper bonds with their clients. They are more committed to providing respectful, dignified, and empathetic service to grieving family members. Simply put, family-owned funeral homes offer better one-on-one interaction.
  • Tailored Services – Family-owned homes offer tailored services. Directors consider what is best for their clients and make recommendations based on that information. Corporate homes have pre-arranged services and funeral items. You may not get tailored solutions.
  • Personal Investment – These establishments understand how difficult funerals can be for family members. Corporate homes maintain their distance and follow a specific code of conduct dictated by their head office. Family-owned businesses have a more nuanced approach. They read the situation, take time to understand what clients need, and then offer support. If you need a more personal touch, these funeral homes will be the right choice.
  • Big Part of the Community – Family-owned homes are a big part of the local community. They understand the local culture, traditions, characteristics, and preferences better. This helps them provide a more meaningful service to their clients, which is one of the reasons why they are so popular.
