Making Arrangements

The family meets with the funeral director to make arrangements for your loved one’s funeral. This meeting takes place wherever you prefer, such as the funeral home or your home. Bring these items along:

  • Social Security Number
  • Recent Photo
  • Clothing in which to be buried or cremated
  • Veteran’s Discharge Papers, if applicable
  • Historical Family Record (birth date, marriage date, highest grade completed, mother’s maiden name, etc.)

Write a list of questions you would like answered when you meet with the funeral director. Notify family members and close friends of the death of your loved one as soon as possible. If he or she was a member of a church, the clergy should also be notified. We are able to do that for you.

The funeral can be as simple or elaborate as you wish. Consider your likes and desires before the meeting. The funeral director will cover each of the many details that need attention and caringly guide you in your decision making. It need not be a complex process: we are here to guide you!

In today’s mobile society, it is not uncommon to experience death away from home. A single phone call to our office is all it takes to arrange the return of your loved one’s remains. Jones Funeral Service is always available – all hours of the day and night – to help wherever the death occurs.
