Funeral directors can help you with the arranging and managing of funerals for either a friend or family member. Although funeral rites vary greatly among cultures, there are some common links. Funeral directors are more often trained in the ways of embalming. Most funeral directors offer comprehensive services including transportation, floral arrangements, the last rites, the internment and gravestone. Funeral directors can plan out a service to ensure that you and your family are not paying too much money.
Initially the funeral director needs to talk with you in order to understand you and your family's wishes regarding the funeral. The funeral director must keep all the details in mind, such as the location, final disposition ceremony, date, memorial service, burial and/or cremation. There are further arrangements, such as organising pallbearers and clergy. Funeral directors also handle legal paperwork connected with the deceased. Funeral Directors also take care of preparing the viewing rooms and chapel for family and guests.
To train as a funeral director, colleges offer both 2 year and 4 year programs in mortuary science. The subjects of funeral directors includes anatomy, physiology, pathology, embalming, restorative art, social sciences, psychology, grief counselling, oral and written communication, funeral service law, business law and ethics. Most funeral homes are family run businesses, and an exposure to topics like business management, accounting, payroll and tax management will also be useful. To become a funeral director you should have a secondary education, pass national and state board examinations, and have at least a year of apprenticeship. In the UK there are four professional organisations for funeral directors, the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD), the British Institute of Funeral Directors (BIFD), the Society of Allied Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF) and the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA).
Ensure that the funeral directors that you are considering are accredited. Be clear about your family's wishes and make sure that the funeral director understands them and is able to provide an assurance of meeting the requests. Look around and check out various options, and also make sure that you get an itemized list of all the options. Ensure that the funeral director allows flexibility, and that you will not be forced to accept ready made packages. Finally, ensure that the funeral director totally empathizes with your needs.
