A funeral service is what most people think of when they hear the word funeral – typically the decedent is embalmed, dressed, placed in a casket and there may be a viewing/visitation followed by a funeral ceremony and burial in a cemetery. If you are considering a funeral service, know that we offer many options from time honored traditional services, to non-traditional location services and even burial at sea.
At the time of death, a licensed funeral director will meet with you at our funeral home, or in the comfort of your home, depending on the family’s needs and location. The funeral director will go over available options and have you sign the necessary authorizations. Based on the services chosen, our staff will take care of all paperwork, preparations for the service, overseeing the service, obituary placement, and a variety of other tasks.

Some things to know or consider with a funeral
Unlike cremation, there is typically no required waiting period before embalming or burying someone. However, required tasks such as digging the grave, scheduling the officiant, etc… do require coordination and time.
Embalming – except in certain cases, is not required by law. Embalming may be necessary if you select certain funeral arrangements such as a public viewing.
Caskets – Many options exist but typically you have a choice between Wood Caskets and Metal Caskets.
Outer Burial Container – what the casket is placed in and offers protection to the casket and gravesite. Typically there are two types of OBC - grave liners and vaults - and many options exist for the various types.
Earth Burial – There are very few NC laws regarding earth burial, however, cemeteries are allowed to set their own rules/regulations regarding burial on their property.
