Defining Popular Funeral Home Terms

Funeral homes can be a valuable resource for families dealing with the emotional repercussion of a loved one's passing. While this healing process is occurring, professionals can take care of all of the practical considerations to be undertaken in preparing a memorial service.

  • Obituary - The public notice of a person's death, which can be prepared and sent out to local media outlets by the funeral home rather than the family.
  • Visitation - A traditional part of memorial services, in which the friends and family of a dead person view the body in order to pay their respects, typically in the funeral home itself.
  • Cremate - Another service which can be performed by the funeral home, this process comprises reducing the body to ash, typically either to be scattered or stored in a small urn.
  • Embalming - A means for keeping a dead person's body in a presentable condition, funeral home professionals should be prepared for embalming in the frequent instance of a delay between the death and the funeral.
  • Prearrangement - The option of drawing up specifications for your own memorial service with a funeral home while you are still alive.
  • Restorative techniques - Required when the body is presented in an open casket, these create a lifelike appearance through embalming and makeup.
  • Direct burial - Interring a person without any funeral service beforehand.
  • Headstone - Also called the tombstone, placed roughly over the dead individual's head and bearing personal information and messages.
  • Veterans' cemeteries - Spaces set aside for the interment of fallen U.S. service members.
  • Transfer service - A company which can cremate or inter the deceased in caskets without being allowed to embalm or conduct funerals.

    While dealing with the death of a loved one, many people seek out burial or cremation services. Burial services can be found to be provided by funeral homes, however, they seldom actually cremate. They do handle embalming and may arrange for memorial services. They also transport the body and mourners to the cemetery or crematorium. They may also provide the headstone or monument and arrange for flowers. However, digging graves is generally the responsibility of the cemetery. Funeral homes also provide caskets, which come in various designs. Cheap wood caskets are often used for cremation, whilst for burial both wood and metal are common. Funeral homes often offer transportation services for the grieving family members of the deceased. They may have limousines to move the family and friends from the funeral home to the cemetery. A funeral director takes charge of the entire mortuary process. Often a full plan is put together including when and where funeral and burial services will happen. This funeral plan takes into consideration the preferences of the family and the deceased. Memorial services may be secular or religious. Often, the body is kept in a funeral parlor for viewing prior to cremation or burial. Many cultural traditions do not simply focus on death and grief, but are focused towards celebrating the life of the deceased. It is also very common for individuals to plan out their funerals long before they die. If a loved one requests to be embalmed or cremated, then a funeral director makes arrangements to fulfill those wishes. Funerals of veterans have their own traditions, often handled by specialty companies. This is particularly true when burial in a national cemetery is authorized.
