What is a Home Funeral?
At Undertaking LA we feel that the best way to express our vision of a Home Funeral is to describe this service as more of a "Delayed Removal" rather than a full ceremony akin to the kind that are held at a typical funeral home. This means that at Undertaking LA our main goal is to give you the comfort and security to keep the body at home for a few hours or overnight. In our experience we have been able to guide our families with a couple simple phone calls and logistical advice. Then when our families are ready, they call us to take their loved one into our care.
If you are wanting a full three day service or wake, a Death Doula is the best option, as this is their specialty and area of expertise and we want to ensure that all our families needs are met.
