What to Bring to the Funeral Home

There’s a lot that goes into planning a funeral and burial and/or cremation, but it doesn’t have to be hard, especially if you work with seasoned professionals like our staff at Evergreen Cemetery. We understand that your mind is likely going in 100 directions and we want to help this process go smoothly for you.

We wanted to share with you some items you should bring with you to the funeral home when planning services that will be helpful for us and for you.

  • Bring information including: his/her social security number, date of birth, wedding date, parents’ full names, names of surviving relatives, birthplace, schools, employers, physician’s name, military service. Some of these may not be applicable for your loved one. Bring any and all information about the person and his/her family and life that you can find.
  • Bring a copy of his/her life insurance policy.
  • Bring cemetery paperwork, funeral prearrangement, and military discharge papers (if applicable).
