Do You Need A Casket?
We at Gallagher Funeral Home understand that planning a funeral ceremony for someone who has passed entails several complex considerations. However, an increasing number of individuals nowadays choose to preplan their funerals. When you preplan, you can discuss all of your needs and desires with the funeral director and better understand the services they offer.
This expert will assist you in making selections and guarantee that you receive the plan and services you desire. When you're completing the specifics of your service, you'll need to determine whether to include a casket.
We've noticed that many people are unsure whether a casket is necessary for the funeral. Yes, you will need a casket; however, ones constructed of hardwood or metals can be rather pricey. You are not required to purchase one of these and settle for something simpler. If you choose to be cremated, a basic cardboard casket will suffice.
On the other hand, if you choose burial, you may want to consider the other superior casket options available at the funeral home. Third-party providers supply these and the caskets come in a variety of materials, including:
- Manufactured Wood
All of these materials have specific pros and cons and the funeral director will provide you with all the information you need. They will help you with details based on your preferences, ideas, and budget. Regardless of whether you want a basic casket or a customized piece with embellishments, you can find something suitable. Opt for a casket made of a single or dual material and with special motifs and designs if you want something unique.
We offer different funeral plans and can include your preferred casket in it as required. Our funeral director is here to help you every step of the way. For details about our funeral services, please call Gallagher Funeral Home at 318-640-1375.
