Choosing a funeral home in Philadelphia

If you’re planning a funeral in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, there are dozens of funeral homes to choose from. While the choices can feel overwhelming, it’s relatively easy to narrow down your options and find the right fit.

Start by deciding what services you want from the funeral home. Are you going to have your loved one buried or cremated? Would you like there to be a viewing? Do you want to have a service at the funeral home itself or another location? While most funeral homes in Philadelphia will be able to accomodate any of your plans, some specialize in direct cremation (cremation with no additional events organized by the funeral home). If you’re planning to have a viewing or service at the funeral home, you’ll want to take location and aesthetics into account, but if friends and family won’t be visiting the funeral home, these things are less important.

Next, consider your budget. The average price for a full funeral in Philadelphia is almost $9,000, but prices can vary widely by funeral home. Looking at price lists in advance will help you avoid surprises. It’s also a good idea to take online reviews into account.

Once you’ve found a funeral home that you feel is a good fit, give them a call to confirm the information that you found online and start arranging details.
