Difference Between At-Need & Pre-Planning Funerals, Wayne, West Virginia

Handling funeral arrangements is something many people would rather not think about. However, it’s an essential part of the burial process, and there are two ways to go about it. At-need and pre-planning are the funeral planning options most funeral homes offer, and the staff at Morris Funeral Home in Wayne, WV, want to explain both. Each option has its own purpose, with pre-planning being the preferred, so read on to learn more.


funeral planning Untimely deaths, such as with children or young adults, are difficult to bear. Because this was never anticipated, many families never saw the need to plan funeral arrangements, which is why funeral homes offer at-need funeral planning. This service allows loved ones to make last-minute arrangements on the deceased’s behalf. While this takes care of funeral needs, it’s far from preferred. Emotionally, it’s difficult for loved ones to make unexpected decisions in such a short time, and the unanticipated costs of services, a casket, burial, and other details add up quickly.


If you’re a senior citizen, an adult, or you’re simply interested in establishing your funeral wishes, pre-planning is the best funeral planning option. There’s no rush, and you have full control over how you would like the funeral to take place. You can begin budgeting, choose a funeral home, the type of burial services, and decide between a coffin and cremation. This way, there are no surprises or undue stresses for loved ones to handle, and you can relax knowing everything is the way you want it.

If you’re ready to begin funeral planning, turn to the staff at Morris Funeral Home. The compassionate team will work through every step of the process with you and are dedicated to ensuring everything is to your liking. Call (304) 272-5171 to speak with the staff, and visit the website and Facebook page to learn more about the funeral planning services.
