What are the inital steps when sorting out a funeral?

If you are planning in anticipation of death, then the best step is to contact a funeral director. Planning before the sad event will alleviate some stress the person near passing might feel.

The funeral director will start forming a plan based on all the details you give them. In the event of sudden death, calls need to be made to appropriate authorities so the deceased can be moved. The funeral directors can do this, and funeral plans can begin when you are ready.
