Funeral Facts and Tips

A funeral is not the kind of event that we must plan frequently or regularly, but we all must be prepared for the eventuality that we will be called upon to oversee and plan the passing of a loved one. The experts at Bergen Funeral Service Inc can help you with this stressful and emotional process so that you can say goodbye in a dignified manner that meets with the wishes of the departed.

Here are some things you should know about funerals:
  • Disposition arrangements are a term used to describe the funeral wishes of a person. A person can make these arrangements for himself or herself, have a legally appointed trustee fulfill them, or a next of kin.
  • A law protects a person’s choices as long as it meets with the requirements of being easily understood and clearly defined and arrangements of the final services.
  • The law does not require embalming, however there are certain standards that non-embalming services must meet.
  • The law does not require the purchase of a casket before a cremation.
  • You are not required to have the body prepared in a funeral home, however home funeral care must meet specific guidelines. Talk to one of our experts if you are interested in this option.
  • A funeral shipping service that is a “known shipper” has connections that can expedite the process of long distance body transportation.

Help from our Brooklyn Funeral Home

If you are lucky, planning a funeral is not something you need to worry about doing very often. Unfortunately, funerals are as much a certainty as anything can be, and eventually you will need to know how to prepare yourself and your family for one. Bergen Funeral Service Inc has many years of experience helping families go through this challenging and emotional process, and we have a few helpful pointers that can make such a difficult experience more comfortable for you.

When and where is the funeral going to be conducted – is the funeral going to be before burial or after? Are you going to have the service at the funeral home, in a place of worship or somewhere else?

What type of funeral are you having – is there going to be a cremation, an embalming, an open or closed casket?

What material is the casket going to be made out of – wood, metal, will there be a cremation or something else?

Is the ceremony open to friends and family or closed to just a specific few.

What hours and how many times will there be a viewing?

Compose an obituary – go over hobbies, interests and achievements of the deceased in a way that truly reflects how the individual lived.

Make arrangements for the burial – a graveside service with transportation or an intimate cremation both need to be planned, organized and then carried out.

This is an overwhelming time for most people, and we understand that you will need someone to help you through this difficult time. The compassionate and comprehensive service offered by Bergen Funeral Service Inc will take you by the hand and lead you through this ordeal. Call us today and find out what our Brooklyn funeral home can offer you.

Hindu Funeral Home Queens

It is always difficult to make funeral arrangements when a loved one passes. If you are looking for for a Hindu funeral home in Queens, Bergen Funeral Service Inc is a family owned and operated non-denominational funeral home that can perform Hindu funeral services. Our funeral directors are available 24 hours a day and can help ease you through any difficulties.

Since Hindus do not believe in resurrection, the body is rapidly cremated, usually with a day of passing. The ashes are collected and then scattered on a place that was important to the deceased after four days.

At a Hindu funeral, mourners wear casual white clothing. Prayers are said and hymns are sung. There will be an open casket, and the body will be covered with many flowers. It is important to send them prior to the ceremony. It is inappropriate to bring them to the funeral. The deceased’s life will be celebrated with a feast twelve or thirteen days after the funeral.

If you would like more information on our Queens Hindu funeral home, contact Bergen Funeral Service Inc.

  • India. The deceased is cleansed and dressed in preparation for cremation. Sacred objects are then passed around in a counterclockwise direction to symbolize that everything is backwards at the time of death,
  • Tibet. Since there is a limited amount of land, Tibetans have a sky burial. This is where the body is carried by a friend to a burial site to be devoured by vultures.
  • Madagascar. They view the funeral as a celebration and will dance at the gravesite.
