After the death of a loved one, you need to choose a cremation provider, if that was their wish. Before deciding to hand over this responsibility to a particular provider, it’s important to get all the information you need to feel confident in chossing the provider who will care for the cremation of your loved one by asking the right questions.

Many are unaware of the various options available to them while choosing a good cremation provider. There are important details like memorials, visitations, urns etc. that you need to consider. Here are some questions you can ask to get the information you want. The answers to these questions will have you make a better choice:

  • Ask about the inclusions and exclusions in the packages offered because these packages differ from one service provider to another.
  • Conduct a thorough check about the cost of each service.
  • Request for a price list of services so that you don’t have to rely on verbal promises.
  • Do not forget to check about whether the service provider has a remembrance centre. You may want to browse customised items such as caskets, urns, and keepsakes.
  • Seek information about an on-site crematory. Remember that most funeral homes have tie-ups with third-party providers to whom your loved one’s body is transferred, temporarily. It is better to have details about this arrangement.
  • Enquire whether you can visit the facility beforehand and check details like maintenance and cleanliness.

It’s a good idea to go through some testimonials or reviews about the facility and the service provider so that you can judge the quality of services offered. You want to ensure that your loved one is cared for after death. The above questions will help you to select a service provider who can help you to do that.
