5 Things to Consider When Looking for a Mortuary , Ewa, Hawaii

Support means everything when death occurs. While it’s essential to lean on  your loved ones in times of loss, it also helps to have a trustworthy mortuary by your side to make the process easier. That’s why Leeward Funeral Home in Pearl City, HI, encourages all guests to take their time when choosing a mortuary for yourself or a loved one.

If you are looking for a funeral home in Hawaii, this Pearl City mortuary recommends considering the following factors before making a decision:

  • Location: Location is very important when funeral planning. First, you’ll want to choose a cemetery that’s located somewhere the deceased prefers to be laid to rest. Additionally, if you’re planning a memorial service, you may want to choose a facility that’s located near family to reduce  the need for funeral travel.
  • Price: A funeral is often a costly affair—that’s why it’s important to choose a mortuary that offers affordable funerals. Be aware that funeral homes are required by federal law to provide you with a general price list. Ask for the list when inquiring about the funeral home to make comparing mortuaries easier.
  • mortuaryFuneral Planning Assistance: There are many logistics involved in planning a funeral, so it’s important to have the resources on hand. Since funerals often occur in times of duress, it helps to work with a mortuary that has at least one funeral director to help with everything from informing guests to reserving catering for a memorial service.
  • Religious or Cultural Needs: As a funeral is meant to honor an individual’s life, it’s important to select a mortuary that respects the deceased’s religious and cultural preferences. If you have specific requests for a funeral, ask the mortuary if the service can be customized.
  • Burial & Cremation Services: If you haven’t already arranged for burial or cremation services, you may want to select a mortuary that offers versatile interment options. For example, if you prefer to be cremated, make plans with a funeral home that offers a crematory on site.

If you need assistance with anything on your funeral checklist, there’s no better resource than the caring team at Leeward Funeral Home. Call this respected Pearl City mortuary at (808) 455-1041 or visit them online to learn more about their selection of personalized funeral planning.
