Traditional “Full Service Funeral”
A traditional service for burial or entombment is usually the service of choice. At Brown, Owens & Brumley, we believe in the traditional funeral, because it best serves the needs of family and friends.
The well-planned, traditional funeral service could include the following:
* Removal and transportation of deceased to the funeral home.
* Professional care and the embalming process.
* Hairstyling, coloring, and trimming of hair by hairstylist.
* Dressing, cosmetology, and other care of the deceased.
* Casket: either wood or metal, standard or personalized.
* Professional services of funeral director and staff.
* Visitation at the funeral home or facility closer to home.
* Arrangement conference and obituary planning and placement.
* Securing death certificate and necessary permits.
* PowerPoint picture presentations and use of memory boards.
* Funeral/Celebration of life at church, chapel, or other location.
* Register book, memorial folders, prayer cards, and acknowledgement cards.
* Use of funeral coach, (black or white), and/or horse-drawn carriage.
* Pallbearer limousine and family car, “Limousines for family.”
* Lead car sedan for funeral procession.
* Motorcycle police escorts.
* Musicians such as organist, soloist or bagpiper
* Clergy, close personal friend, or relative to officiate over services
* Graveside committal services at cemetery of choice.
* Floral arrangements such as casket piece and/or casket end pieces
* White birds and/or balloon releases.
The traditional service is a meaningful expression for the family, and it gives friends and associates an opportunity to offer their tributes in the way of flowers or memorials to churches or organizations.
Generally, a member of the clergy or other person chosen by the family conducts a service of remembrance. We encourage the active participation of the family in helping plan this part of the service. Many times family members take part by giving a reading, singing or assisting the clergy.
If the ceremony is held in a church, there is no additional charge. Nor is there an additional charge for arranging and conducting fraternal services.
