Exploring the Lesser Known Aspects of Funeral Planning

Published: August 11, 2015

One of the last things people want to think about after the loss of a loved one is the logistics of funeral planning. Unless the deceased had explicit plans for their remains after their passing, the first 24 hours after a loss can be extremely taxing. Calls need to be made, people informed, and affairs need to be ordered. It’s likely that during this sensitive time period, more and more issues will crop up, creating an ever heavier burden for the deceased’s survivors.

While funeral planning is the umbrella term we at Anctil Rochette & Son use to describe the service we provide, there are often unknown knowns that we help take care of too. Here are a few of the services we provide that you might not have necessarily considered.

Transportation of the Remains

Often the first step in starting our services starts with the remains of the deceased. We provide transportation of the remains, be it from the hospital or private home. The transportation of your loved one’s remains is handled with the utmost care and respect by our employees. We possess all the equipment necessary to make sure your loved one makes it to our facility unscathed.

Obituary Publication

Calling newspapers and other publications in order to place an obituary is a detail that can often be forgotten or overlooked during the hours after a loved one has passed. Our funeral directors ensure that this very important step in the service is handled correctly. Providing an obituary that both suits the deceased as well as informing others about a person’s passing is dually important. Our obituaries are checked for detail accuracy and spelling and our existing business relationships with the major publications in New Hampshire eases this process greatly.

Green Funeral Planning

For those who desire to leave as little impact on the earth as possible after they have passed, we also offer services catering to environmentally friendly options for burial or cremation.

By planning your funeral service with Anctil Rochette & Son, you are guaranteeing you will not be caught unawares by these unknown knowns. Design a plan that suits your needs by calling us at (603) 883-3041.
