MAPS & DIRECTIONS
To the Families We Serve,
Effective communication between your family and our staff is essential to properly design and execute all aspects of funeral arrangements. Your expression of specific needs and desires provides our staff the ability to memorialize your loved one in a meaningful and personal way. Some families may want to display photographs or a memory table of personal belongings...others may prefer special music, poetry or readings...others may prefer a simple, quiet time of meditation. Your wishes or thoughts on personalization may be more unique. Whatever your thoughts, we are dedicated to answering your questions, carrying out your directions and guiding you through the next several days and weeks.
Holmdel Funeral Home provides many personalized services to meet the special needs of the family. The following provides a sample of the wide range of services available.
TRADITIONAL FUNERAL SERVICE
This service includes viewing hours, a gathering of family and friends for a tribute ceremony held at the funeral home or church, the presence of an opened or closed casket and an order of service followed by burial or cremation.
This is a service held at the grave with the presence of casket or urn.
This service or gathering is sometimes referred to as a Memorial Reception. It is designed by the family to meet their specific needs and is usually held in one of our chapels or a location of your choice. The casket is not present but an urn may be present along with photographs and other memorabilia.
There are a variety of cremation service choices with or without
viewing, tribute, gathering, ceremony or memorial service.
Note: We suggest that for the time of visitation and funeral, someone remain in your home or a close neighbor maintain a watchful eye during your absence.
