Choosing a funeral home in Baton Rouge
If you’re planning a funeral in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, there are about a dozen funeral homes to choose from, and their reviews vary a great deal. Louisiana is one of few states where people still favor burial over cremation by a large margin. This can add significant costs to a funeral, but it doesn’t have to.
It’s a good idea to start by settling on which services you’ll want. Do you want your loved one embalmed? Would you like there to be a viewing? Will there be a traditional service, graveside service, both, or neither? All of these choices are personal; it just depends on what feels right to you and your family. If you’re tight on cash, an immediate burial or direct cremation may be a good option for you. You can still host a very meaningful memorial service or celebration of life on your own without coordinating through the funeral home.
Once you’ve settled on basic services, it’s easier to compare funeral homes. Look at what the total pricing will be for each, then take a look at reviews, so you feel confident that everything will be taken care of. On Ever Loved, you can do all this in just a few minutes.
Once you’ve found the Baton Rouge funeral home that feels like the right fit, give them a call to ask any final questions and get things set up.
