Funeral homes offer many services to assist families with putting a loved one to rest. Along with hosting funeral services, funeral home employees assist with making arrangements before, during and after the funeral.
One of the first services a funeral home provides is the transportation of the deceased person from the place of death to the funeral home or crematorium. A funeral home also performs embalming, restorative and cosmetic services to prepare the deceased for the funeral and burial. Helping families with any necessary paperwork, scheduling an officiant for the funeral and providing memorial materials are other services funeral homes offer.
