A family-led home funeral is an opportunity for a very personal way to say goodbye to a loved one. By actively channeling their grief, mourners can achieve a greater sense of closure with the preparation of the body and expressing their love through a personalized family service that reflects the life of the deceased.
Home Funerals Require Advanced Planning
Advanced planning is advised because there are some legalities and permits required. A doctor or medical professional must certify the death certificate
In New Jersey, the assistance of a funeral director is also required by families wishing to care for their own dead, both at home and at the cemetery or crematory.
