Funeral Directors Terms to Know

Losing a loved one is difficult enough on its own, but if you're tasked with planning a funeral or memorial service the experience can be that much more draining. Selecting an appropriate coffin or urn is not something that most of us could do without the help of qualified funeral directors at reputable funeral parlors. These folks assist families and loved ones with everything from getting a funeral notice in the paper to handling the actual cremation. And while funeral directors endeavor to speak plainly, not everyone is familiar with the lexicon of the funeral home. Hopefully you won't need to know these common terms used in funeral homes and parlors, but if you do, you'll be glad you learned these terms.

  • Embalming - The preservation process used to keep bodies from rapid decomposition. It normally involves replacing blood and other body fluids with preservatives and antiseptics.
  • Funeral Notices and Obituaries - Funeral notices give times and dates for funerals and little, or no, personal information. An obituary is a separate, paid, notice that includes a short description of the deceased person's life.
  • Mortuary Science - An umbrella term covering most of the work done behind the scenes at a mortuary. This covers everything from coffin design to embalming science. It's an extremely complicated business that requires a sensitive touch.
  • Pre-Planned Funerals - These plans spare family members the trouble of planning and paying for, a funeral by getting everything done well in advance of the person's passing. These plans include everything from where the cremation takes place, what urn the ashes should be placed in and even what Scriptures and poems should be read in the service.

    Funeral directors are professionals who are also commonly referred to as morticians or undertakers. These individuals deal with prepping bodies for the ceremony each family has in mind for their deceased loved one. This type of job has been around for many years, and it is common for funeral directors to deal with anything from burial arrangements, to embalming, to body cremation, to dressing the deceased, to placing the body in a casket prior to funeral services. There are a number of funeral home locations across the United States alone. Licensed professionals who work in this business can generally assist with reserving cemetery plots, hearse rentals, memorial services, the grave digging process, and an obituary placement in the local paper. However, depending on the religious beliefs you practice, you will likely have to have a priest, minister or pastor read the last rites at the chapel or cemetery where the funeral is held. On the other hand, a funeral director can manage the wake you have in mind. You simply need to make arrangements for your deceased loved one and he/she will assist you with the ceremony. By accessing the web, you can learn plenty more about mortician assistance, burials ceremonies, the embalming process, and coffin or casket selections. Considering the age we live in, there is a great deal to choose from. You can often pinpoint funeral homes and directors in your area through the internet. Once you establish their location, you may find it helpful to visit them in person to learn more.
