When death occurs in your family, it is always the choice of the family to decide which funeral undertake has to render a service for you. If your choice of funeral undertaker is Jureen Place of Burials, always phone us first without listening to hospital and ambulance personnel, as they might confuse you by saying that the body has to be removed immediately, or they might say that the funeral undertakers work together. That is not true. The problem with allowing another funeral undertaker to remove the body from the hospital and your actual choice of undertaker is – large storage and removal fees will have to be paid to that undertaker by the family.
Although you may be in the situation whereby the body is in another town outside of our district, you also have to contact us immediately to save storage and removal cost, even if the body is in a hospital or other facility. We at Jureen Place of Burials will take care to arrange immediate removal at no charge!
Dealing with a larger sized body is one of the most important factors to take into consideration when making arrangements for a funeral. This only becomes a realization at the time of the funeral for your loved one. The normal measurements of a coffin is 1,98m long x 53mm wide x 30mm high. Larger bodies vary in size, therefore, the funeral parlour has to measure the body at the time of receiving it in order for a coffin with the correct specifications to be ordered from the factory. Larger coffins are always reinforced and assembled with the appropriate handles and trimmings to accommodate the weight when handling the coffin during the pall bearing stages of the ceremony. These circumstances will affect setting the date for the burial.
Having one or more funeral policies might be fine with you, but did you know that some companies take longer than the so called 48 hours they promise to pay out the policy? When you have a policy with Jureen Place of Burials to cover the burial or cremation, you don’t have the stress of not having the funds ready before the body leaves our premises. We don’t say you should cancel those important policies; keep paying them as that money will assist you in all the other expenses that follow in the days after the funeral. We are proud to say that when you have a policy with us, you can sit back and see all the arrangements being done for you, allowing your focus and attention to be on your time of grief with relatives and friends.
Starting your day, knowing that you have to go to the funeral parlour to begin the arrangements of a funeral for your loved one is one of the most fearful and depressing duties that you can imagine. For some of us it is the first time we have to go through this journey and that is why it is important for you to get to know your funeral undertaker while still alive.
Come visit us at Jureen Place of Burials and experience how you and your family will be treated on that painful day as that is the key factor to be at peace with what is to come.
