FAQ’s

General

As we work with all the funeral directors in the industry, we are unable to recommend any one funeral director. However, from our experience, families usually choose a funeral director within 3 miles of their own location.
Currently we do not offer funeral plans. However, if you plan to have a burial in the future, you can pre-purchase a burial plot for yourself or your family. For information on available burial option please visit burial option on our website or contact us.
