Look For These Things When Considering a Funeral Home

Published: May 2, 2022
by Welch Funeral Home

Whether you are preplanning your funeral arrangements, or you are in immediate need of services from funeral homes in White Oak, TX, you want to ensure you choose the best funeral home for you and your family. But with so many choices, how can you be sure you choose the right one?

Luckily, there are things you can look for that will help you determine if you feel comfortable with a funeral home or not. Let’s look at some of these now.

Knowledgeable Staff

Making funeral arrangements is never easy and most likely this will be the first time you have to do so. Because of this, you want to choose a funeral home that has the experience and will be able to walk you through the process.

When you meet with the funeral director and other staff, do they seem knowledgeable? Are they able to answer your questions and give you straight and honest answers? How long have they been in business?  How many years of experience does their staff have?

Paying attention and asking questions like this can help you determine if they have the knowledge and experience you are requiring.

Honest Pricing

You may not be aware but funeral homes, when asked, are required by law to provide you with a detailed list of prices. If the funeral home attempts to redirect your questions about pricing or simply does not answer them or gives you false pricing, run. This is not a funeral home you want to do business with.

Any reputable funeral home will have no problem being open and honest about its pricing and the services they offer.

Has a Good Reputation

Look into the reputation of the funeral home you are considering. Consider things like:

  • Do they have good reviews from past clients? 
  • How is their standing in the community? 
  • Do they have good comments on their social media channels? 
  • Are they in good standing with the local business bureaus? 

If you are having a difficult time finding past reviews or other information, it is entirely appropriate to ask the funeral home directly. Perhaps they do have great reviews but just haven’t had a chance to add them to their website. A reputable home will have no issue with your asking about their reputation.

Overall Vibe

Don’t underestimate the feeling you get when you first meet with the home. Even if they are saying all the right things, but you just don’t have a good feeling about them, find another business. Many people don’t pay attention to that little feeling, and while not always one hundred percent correct, your intuition can tell you a lot.  If it’s telling you to find someplace else, listen to it.
