Things Funeral Home Directors Won’t Say About Funerals

When you visit funeral homes in Las Vegas, NV to plan final services for a loved one, or to plan for your own services in advance, you expect certain things. You want to see price lists and packages and you expect to be treated with kindness and compassion. But there are certain things you can also expect not to hear from the funeral director during the planning process. Here are a few such things. 


Traditional Funerals Are No Longer Useful 

While more people are leaning toward cremation today than ever before, funeral directors will never downplay what traditional funerals can do for people, even if you are heading toward cremation yourself. Funerals are wonderful events to help people mourn and honor a loved one. They offer comforting traditions that will likely never go away. Whether the funeral director prefers cremation or not, they will never try to steer you toward it by down-playing what regular funerals can do. 


All Funeral Homes Are Alike 

If you ask a funeral director what’s different about their company over others in the area, they can probably rattle off a long list of items. Perhaps they have more extensive services or offer an on-site crematory, among other things. They certainly will not tell you that every funeral home is the same. They are all run by different people with different qualities. Plus, they have been in the community for differing lengths of time, which gives them various levels of history and experience. 


Funerals Are Better Than Cremation Services 

Funeral directors will never offer their opinions on either disposition method. It is their job to provide you with the information you need to figure out what you want. They won’t try to lean on you or get you to go one way over another. Funerals are better than cremation—for some families. But cremation is better than funerals for other families. Funeral representatives will allow you to make those decisions on your own, and then they will support you and implement any plans you make. 


Spending More Honors Your Loved One Further 

This is something you should absolutely never hear and if you do, run away from that funeral home as fast as you can. Funeral directors should never pressure you into spending more than you are comfortable with and they should never try to make you feel guilty or play off your emotions. That’s downright deplorable.
