Planning a funeral in Scottsdale, AZ

If you’re planning a funeral in Scottsdale, Arizona, it’s generally a good idea to start by determining what style of funeral you’d like to have. Do you want to have your loved one buried or cremated? Would you like there to be a viewing? Do you want a traditional funeral service, or something more unique? In Scottsdale, it’s also important to take weather into account. For example, in the middle of July, an indoor memorial service may be more practical than a graveside service, but the most important thing is that you and your family members feel good about the plan.

Once you’ve figured out the basics, then you can start taking a look at funeral homes. There are only a few funeral homes in Scottsdale itself, but you have plenty of choices if you look at nearby funeral homes in Phoenix, Tempe and Mesa. Because cremation is more popular than burial in Arizona, you’ll find that several funeral homes focus only on cremation, which is one reason why it’s important to have a loose sense for what you want before choosing a funeral home.

Most funeral homes in Scottsdale will have a space where you can hold a funeral service, but you don’t need to restrict yourself to that. Many people hold funerals, memorial services or celebrations of life in places of worship, community centers, restaurants, parks and private homes. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box.
