The Arrangement Conference
One of the first meetings that the funeral director will schedule with the person who is in charge of finalizing funeral arrangements is the Arrangement Conference and although it may be held at any location, it is always best if it is held at the funeral home. Most funeral homes have a special room where the funeral director and the family of the decedent can meet to discuss all the services, options and alternatives for the services that will be provided by the funeral home during the next few days. However, many people are uncomfortable making arrangements at the funeral home and prefer meeting in the comfort at home. We, at HW Oldham Funeral Home, welcome doing arrangements in the comfort of your home.
At the Arrangement Conference, the funeral director will take the lead and assume the responsibility to provide or arrange for everything that you and the rest of the family chooses to have provided. If the funeral director can't provide a specific service that is requested by the family, he will arrange for and coordinate that and all the services that you request to be provided.
