Funeral Services & Information
Providing the standard of service you would expect from a modern funeral director
Once upon a time, no one questioned the role of the funeral director or the order of events, but now everything is up for discussion – from the colour of the casket, to the venue, the flowers, and the style of service.
Because there’s no longer a set way to conduct a funeral, we’ve found that more than ever, families need a funeral director who can guide and support them in a down-to-earth and genuine way. They need someone who is easy to talk to, can offer fresh ideas and suggestions that ‘fit’ family dynamics, all while understanding the need to respect tradition, values or beliefs.
The team at Rosetown Funeral Home are those people. We provide dignified care, genuine advice and value across all our services. Whether you would like a traditional or contemporary funeral service, or even a direct cremation service, nothing is too much to ask or too much trouble.
For a modern and refreshing approach and dignified care, contact us today.
Where to Start
Step 1: Call Rosetown Funeral Home
It’s amazing how much of a difference can be made by one simple phone call. Firstly, we will be able to answer any questions you may have. Secondly, we can make a plan together about how to proceed. This will include organising a time and place to meet with you and any others who will be making funeral arrangements. It will also involve arranging a transfer from the place where the death has occurred.
Step 2: Contact Next of Kin & Family
Following a death, it is best to surround yourself with those closest to you, as this provides a valuable support network. It is also helpful for deciding who will be involved in making the funeral arrangements, and when they can get together. This is especially important when different family members are out of town, or unavailable at the time.
Step 3: Contact Your Family Doctor or Attending Physician to Advise of the Death
Before a burial or cremation can take place, the required documentation must be issued by the doctor. We can obtain these documents for you in the process of arranging the funeral. Under some circumstances, the doctor is unable to issue these forms. If this is the case, the Coroner will need to be involved. If the death has occurred in a hospital or nursing home, the duty nurse or other staff member will often do this task for you.
