Their thought-out plans lead to a more enjoyable service and less stressful funeral planning.

Here’s how a funeral checklist will benefit you and your family:

  • funeral checklistContact List: The hours and days immediately following a death are the hardest. Overcome by grief, it’s difficult for loved ones to think about who needs to be told and how to contact them. Fortunately, a funeral checklist features a list of names and phone numbers of the people who should be immediately informed about a death or medical emergency.
  • Type of Service: Funeral choices include religious, nondenominational, military, and fraternal. It’s an important decision and often the cause of stress and tension within families. Everyone wants to make the right choice, and a funeral checklist will feature each detail to ensure everyone’s wishes are made clear.
  • Obituary & Memorial Information: Many families choose to honor their loved one with an obituary. A funeral checklist provides a rundown of what you should consider to make your family’s job easier. If you’d like an obituary, jot down notes about what it should include. If you’d like a charity to benefit from memorial donations in your name, provide your loved ones with that information.
