Things to Consider Before Selecting a Funeral Home

Selecting the right Cypress, TX funeral home and cremation services provider is important since you'll want to give your deceased loved one the best send off possible. But have you stopped to consider what things you should consider before signing on the dotted line?


Here are a few things to mull over as you look for a service provider that will do you proud.


Products & Services

If the service provider you’re interested in doesn’t offer what you’re looking for, it’s clear that you’ll have to look elsewhere. Some companies in the death care industry offer traditional burial, others offer cremation and some offer both. Once you know exactly what you’re looking for, you’ll be able to eliminate from contention any businesses that don’t offer what you need.



Do you want to have a reception afterwards? Is it important to you that there be an area where a viewing can be held before the burial or cremation? Consider what you want and then look for death care service providers that have the amenities to accommodate your wishes.


Comfort Level

For this one, you’ll actually need to visit one or more funeral homes. Once there, consider how you’re treated, the professionalism of the staff and the receptiveness of the funeral director. If you’re uncomfortable with anything you see or experience, ask yourself whether or not you can trust the service provider to deliver what you want to your exact specifications. One tip would be to check out online reviews to see what other people have to say about death care service providers that may be on your shortlist of candidates.


Cultural & Religious Needs

Is it important to you that the service provider you choose be open-minded about your cultural and religious needs? Be upfront about what you expect, and find out if the service provider is capable of delivering on what you want. You might also want to ask the service provider if it’s ever actually performed a burial or cremation for a client of your cultural or religious background.



Be sure to ask death care services providers for their price lists that detail what they offer and how much everything costs. Two businesses might offer similar services and yet be miles apart on price points. So, if you’re particularly price-conscious, be sure to factor this into your selection process. Of course, it’s best not to base your decision entirely on price because sometimes, as the saying goes, you get what you paid for. Sometimes quality costs a bit more.
