What is the purpose of the Death Certificate?

A Certified Death Certificate is necessary before anything can be done.  A death certificate can be obtained through a Funeral Director.  It is a good idea to obtain multiple copies of a death certificate as most agencies require a certified certificate and not a photocopy.

Can I see my loved one immediately after death at the funeral home?

Keep in mind that it takes time to prepare your loved one for viewing, but we do our best to meet your time requirements. It is advisable to meet with the Funeral Director first to choose a casket and bring in clothing for your loved one.

How long does it take to get the deceased to the chapel for viewing?

This depends on the amount of preparation required for the deceased, as well as the time required to receive a casket or cremation container to be delivered from the supplier.
