The pre-needs department works closely with customers who are interested in pre-planning and pre-funding their funeral services.

Theirs is a never-ending learning process as they keep up with new policies, practices, laws, and more.
Possibly the most “visible” members of the staff are the Funeral Attendants and Funeral Directors. Some of the duties of these two positions overlap, such as greeting attendees and helping them to their seats. Funeral Attendants also assist in placing caskets, flowers, and other elements in the parlor or chapel for viewings and funerals. They obtain burial permits and registers deaths, as well as issuing and storing funeral equipment, and performing general cleaning and maintenance of the funeral home and vehicles. Much of what they do is “behind the scenes,” however they can also step in to act as pallbearers and drivers.
Funeral Directors work directly with the loved ones of the deceased to choose the wording for the obituary, designate pallbearers, casket selection, and basically plan every detail of the services, including procuring religious officials to perform rites when needed. They also work with the cemeteries to schedule grave openings and closings. Funeral Directors oversee every aspect of a service, from the preparation of the deceased to receiving and offering support to the bereaved. There are more duties included in this position than can possibly be listed, however the Funeral Director cannot perform his or her job without the network of support provided by each staff member.
