Getting Started

For starters, there is a long list of documents necessary for the funeral arrangement process. Whether you are pre-planning for yourself or gathering this information for a lost loved one, we will help you gather all the appropriate paperwork to ensure the process stays seamless. The documents you will need to obtain first and foremost are the Vital Statistics, including:

  • The deceased’s date of birth, place of birth, and date of death
  • The name of the deceased’s father, place of birth, and year
  • The deceased’s mother’s maiden name, place of birth, and year
  • A list of the deceased’s surviving family members
  • The deceased’s educational history – elementary, high school, college, and graduate school

Other Important Documents

Along with the deceased’s Vital Statistics, you will need to gather some other valuable documents so the appropriate people and organizations can be notified as part of the long-term probate process. We have over nine decades in this line of work and can help you handle any issues with understanding or gathering the following:

  • Social Security Number
  • Insurance Policies
  • Deeds to Burial Property
  • Driver’s License
  • Fraternal, Service, and Union Memberships
  • Special Recognitions

Persons to Contact

In today's day and age, an online funeral announcement is your best bet to ensuring everyone is aware of the funeral details.
