Selecting Funeral Products

Now that you made the vital decision regarding burial or cremation for your loved one, you need to choose the funeral products involved with your choice.

When you choose burial, you’ll need to select a casket, and burial vault.  If your preference was cremation, then you'll want to browse our selection of cremation containers and urns.

As you sit with your Funeral Director to plan the funeral or memorial service, he or she will speak with you about personalization pieces and memorial products. Below is our online catalog of available products at English Bros. Funeral Home.
 

Caskets

English Bros. Funeral Home has a large variety of caskets that you can choose from, including various species of hand crafted woods with a cherry or mahogany finish and state of the art metal caskets made from carbon steel or precious bronze or copper. You may also wish to customize the caskets as a fitting tribute to your loved one.

Burial Vaults

Outer burial vaults may be required by a cemetery to prevent the settling of the grave site, and to facilitate grounds maintenance. Also, many families choose to protect the casket and safeguard their loved one’s remains through the purchase of a burial vault that exceeds cemetery regulations.

Burial vaults range from the standard unlined burial vault, which serves as basic protection from the grave site elements; to lined outer burial vaults.

Cremation Vaults

A cremation vault acts to protect the urn. If you've chosen to inter a loved one's ashes on the grounds of a cemetery, you may want to consider the purchase of a cremation vault.  You may on the other hand choose above ground entombment  and place the urn in a niche of a community mausoleum.

Cremation Urns

After cremation occurs, the remains will be returned to your family in a simple black temporary plastic container. This container is perfect for keeping the cremated remains for a short time, prior to a  final urn selection. There are many reasons to purchase a more permanent, elegant cremation urn. These include:

  • If you plan to have a memorial service where the cremated remains will be present
  • If you plan to inter the remains in a mausoleum niche where the urn will be visible
  • If you wish to keep the cremated remains in a place of honor at home

Urns are made of various materials, generally in categories of hardwood, metal or stone. We also offer a selection of  biodegradable urns for those selecting scattering at sea. There are also miniature keepsake urns which will hold a token portion of the cremated remains, a lock of hair, or earth from the grave site.

We offer a wide variety of urns, in all price ranges. Most urns can be engraved with name, date of birth, and date of death.

Bringing Your Loved One’s Personality into the Service

The funeral or memorial service you plan for a loved one can be as personal as you wish it to be. Many families find great comfort in turning their thoughts inward for a time, to consider the personality, interests, and achievements of their loved one. Your Funeral Director will ask the following things about your loved one:

  • Personal characteristics
  • Passions, interests, and hobbies
  • Lifetime Achievements

The Funeral Director may also ask about:

  • The special memories you wish to share, or highlight at the service
  • The important people you’d like to note or include
  • How you’d like to personalize elements of the ceremony, such as the music, prayers, or recitations

Once you've given thought to the unique life and personality of the person who died, it's time to incorporate those memories into the funeral plan. Be creative as you, together with your family, friends, Funeral Director and the person who will lead the service, brainstorm how to remember and honor this special person.

A good way to personalize the funeral is to personalize the common elements of funeral ceremonies:

  • The visitation
  • The eulogy
  • The music
  • The readings
  • The procession
  • The committal service
  • The gathering or reception

Considering Memorialization?

Just what is involved in memorializing a loved one? it’s probably not within your power to build something like the Taj Mahal in their honor; however, there are wonderful things you can do to memorialize your loved one and ensure they are remembered and honored.

To memorialize is in keeping with two basic human needs, the desire to remember, and to be remembered. So, how would your loved one like to be remembered?

Perhaps they would choose something small and private, such as a birdbath, sundial or garden bench. Or, maybe you think they would prefer having a tree  planted in their name. You may wish to arrange a memorial service at English Bros. Funeral Home.

You may simply choose to create an online memorial in their honor, such as a Book of Memories™, where you can include a video tribute, as well as an archive of treasured photographs.

Whether large or small, there are many memorial product options –in all price ranges– that can help you express your final goodbye and remember the life of someone you loved.
