What to Expect

Many individuals and families are unsure of what to expect when planning funeral services, and here at Boca Raton Funeral Home, we support you each step of the way. From helping with formal paperwork, explaining various options for interment, and providing assistance planning the funeral or memorial service itself, we will be here for you and your family the entire time.

We provide private, in-person consultations to walk you through each step in the process, answer any questions you have, and determine what will best meet the needs and wishes of your family.

Necessary Forms

When planning funeral services in immediate need, several forms and pieces of paperwork will need to be gathered. These include your loved one’s birth certificate, marriage certificate, and life or funeral insurance policies. There will be more paperwork that you need down the line as well, such as the financial statements of the deceased. Our caring team will help you compile a list of the documents you have, what you will need, and provide guidance on how you can retrieve all the information in the easiest way possible.

Other information to have on-hand is your loved one’s date and city of birth, social security number, occupation, military service, education, parents’ names, and where their final resting place will be. This information aids the funeral director in completing necessary legal documents.

You will need to complete paperwork for the purchase of a burial plot or cremation niche, and casket or urn selection. Several other documents and forms will need to be completed by the funeral director at Boca Raton Funeral Home, such as the pronouncement of death and a burial permit will need to be obtained. We take care of each of these formal necessities and contact Social Security to notify the agency of your loved one’s death.

You may need to have your loved one transported to the funeral home. We will take care of all the paperwork and arrangements regarding transportation.

Making Arrangements

If your loved one made their final wishes known regarding their final resting place and what type of funeral service they wished to have, you have a place to start. If you are unsure, we will go over each and every option with you and take the time to discuss your selections so that you and your family feel at peace. Our Boca Raton Funeral Home offers cremation services, entombment, and burials.

When planning funeral services, there are many details to take into consideration. We know that making these decisions can seem tedious. We do not believe that you should have to handle more paperwork with more vendors for items like flowers and music. We work with a list of vendors and can handle communication with them on your behalf during your time of grief.

Timeline of Events

Funeral services, cremation, and burial typically take place within seven days of an individual passing away. However, memorial services may be held at a later time if an individual is cremated, allowing time for family and friends from around the country to plan and travel to a service. Religious considerations will be taken into account, and funeral services planned accordingly.

Once the formal paperwork is taken care of, the details of the arrangements selected, and the final resting place determined, we will help your family start planning the funeral service. We are here to help with a wide range of issues, including obituaries, printing memorial cards and programs for funeral services, and more.

In the weeks to come, you will have to notify various financial institutions, insurance companies, organizations at which your loved one had memberships (such as a gym or a club), and more. Our Boca Raton Funeral Home will help you put together a checklist and develop a plan, providing instruction on timeframes you must meet based on legal necessities.

There is never a step during the process of planning an at-need funeral where you will be left alone, unsure of what to do next, at our Boca Raton Funeral Home.
