Funeral Directors

Many men and women choose to work as a funeral director or mortician. After all, this is a very important line of work that calls for a special skill set. With so many funeral home locations all across the country, there are many places for an undertaker to work. When involved with this field, you typically work with embalming fluid, burial ceremony arrangements, deceased men and women, as well as the cremation process. Although it may sound like a morbid business to some degree, it is very important line of work because you get to assist many families.

To become a mortician or undertaker, you first need to acquire the right education. This schooling can take two to four years to complete. After all, you must learn all about dressing a body properly, casket sizes, grave digging, memorial services, and cemetery plots. Once you become a licensed funeral director, you will help people with hearse services, religious rites, obituary listings, chapel ceremonies, and proper wake services. Since many people practice different religions, you need to be prepared for different arrangements. As a professional, it will be up to you to manage the embalming process for the deceased, as well as the burial ceremony. Therefore, this can sometimes be a stressful position.

When you work as a funeral director, you can expect to get involved with all sorts of people. This is just part of the job. You may also have to work with religious professionals, casket manufacturers, and grave diggers at times.

"Didn't talk to us about picking out urns. Had no time or place for service. Took 12 days as of today and still no death certificate, so no cremation. Absolutely did not offer any help at all. ..."

Funeral directors offer remains, custom, casket, deceased, honor, spiritual, disposition, families, urn, vault, grave, burial, insurance, trust, veteran, monuments, traditional, memorial, embalm, deceased and mortuary products and services. When choosing a funeral director, research their background thoroughly. Choose a few different options to start with and contact each one. Ask for references, contact information, quotes and an outline of company policy. Ask how long they have been in operation and whether it is a local, national or multinational entity. Make sure the company you choose has proper licenses and certificates. Matching your specific needs to their services is another good idea to narrow down the listing. Study the services they offer and see whether they are what you're after. For example, they may list that they offer pre arrange, cemetery, cremation, limousine, church, casket and monument services. You need a special ceremony because your tradition doesn't allow you to perform the funeral in church. As you may notice in the example they didn't list “other religions” and “traditions” of funerals as part of their services. In this case you should ask, otherwise look for another service that offers that particular need. Once again try to match up your specific requirements to the services they provide. The next stage is looking at where the physical location of the ceremony takes place. You may want it in a particular area or might want it to be close by so regular visits are easy to make. Checking into all this is a great way of finding that perfect funeral director, so make sure you do the research thoroughly and ask the right questions. By knowing what questions to ask, you should be able to find the funeral director that is best for you in serving your directors, remains, custom, deceased and honor needs.
