At some time in our lives, most of us will be involved in making arrangements for the funeral of a loved one or a dear friend. This quite often means having to make decisions during a very stressful emotional and difficult time.
The role of the funeral director is to assist and guide family and friends through this process. While the funeral director is a source of advice and comfort, you will be asked to make some decisions and choices about the service. We are there to help in any way we can to make sure the funeral arrangements reflect the wishes of the deceased and their loved ones.
We encourage you to ask questions, no matter how big or small. Discuss and consider all options available and choose the one that best meets your financial and personal wishes, while keeping in mind the preferences of the departed. It is important when selecting a funeral director to choose one who abides by the Australian Funeral Directors Association Code of Ethics and who has a good reputation in the local community.
Plan a personalised ceremony that will help you begin the healing process. Coping with grief is never easy, and having a special and meaningful funeral tribute is an important step on that journey.
Arrangements for the funeral can be made in the privacy of your own home, at one of our offices, or an alternate venue suitable to your needs. We will take the time to guide you through the details of the service and will organise everything you need to honour your loved one.
WT Howard Funerals has a large range of coffins, caskets and urns of all description, in our offices, and we can guide you through any questions you may have to make the most appropriate choice for you. We also encourage private viewings where family and friends can spend some quiet time in peace with their loved ones for a final goodbye.
