Questions about purchasing products and services for a funeral?
Am I required to place a death notice / Obituary notice in the newspaper?
No, you do not need to place a death notice in the paper. However, you can add a free Obituary notice on HonourThem. Your Obituary notice will remain permanently online and friends can add their condolence messages and photos. Your funeral home can add the Obituary notice on your behalf, or you can do this yourself and in this instance, we require supporting documentation.
Simultaneously you can also create a free Memorial Page for your Loved One. This is a digital album of photos, videos, audio and holds the portrait and life story of your Loved One.
What range of funeral products and services would the funeral home offer?
In short, your funeral director can do everything for you if you wish. If you have any variables, then you can review products and services that HonourThem offer. Examples of this:
- You may wish to use a Celebrant to conduct your service that you know or HonourThem suggests.
- You may wish to have funeral badges printed for your guests to wear.
Should I send flowers to the funeral or home?
If you’d like to send flowers, the best option is usually to send it to the recipient at home. This will reduce the amount of work on their end. On the other hand, if you are attending the funeral, taking the flowers with you and placing them at the front by the casket will also be appreciated. HonourThem work with the Petals Network and they deliver flowers nationwide to all churches, funeral homes and residential addresses.
