The Advantages of Working with a Family Owned Funeral Home

Dealing with a loved one’s death is never easy so organizing a funeral during this time can be very stressful. Choosing the right funeral home or director can reduce your burden by a considerable margin. At Tindall Funeral Home, we encourage people to consider a family-owned establishment as opposed to a large-scale franchise and here are some reasons why:

1. Customized and Personalized Services

Family-owned funeral homes offer a more hands-on service so funeral directors are often personally involved in all aspects of planning and execution. Establishment owners often interact with the grieving families directly, making an effort to understand their cares or priorities to ensure the decedent’s or family’s wishes are followed. This reduces the stress of planning and helps grieving family members focus on healing.

2. Quality

Family-owned establishments offer a better quality of services as owners work directly in the planning process. These funeral homes rely on the quality of customer service as well as word of mouth to get more clients so they make sure every funeral is handled carefully. As these homes also handle fewer funerals, there are fewer mistakes. They don’t rush through the funeral process, which ensures every aspect of it is done well.

3. Comfort

These funeral homes offer a truly compassionate service because they are more hands-on. They offer comfort during the planning process, sound advice on different aspects of funerals, and can help family members choose the right options. Funeral home employees often offer some grief counseling as well, which helps clients in this trying time. They are respectful and always willing to answer questions or listen with compassion. That’s why family-owned funeral homes are a popular choice.

Contact us at Tindall Funeral Home through our online form or call (315) 468-5521 if you want to know about our funeral services and need advice on different services.
