Choosing a Funeral Director in Blacktown
Choosing a Funeral Director in Blacktown can be difficult, as it can be overwhelming to make a decision as soon as you’ve heard that your loved one has passed.
As a majority of decisions regarding a funeral are made within the next 24-48 hours, it’s important to have someone in mind. Below are some frequently asked questions around choosing a Funeral Director in Blacktown.
Who should I contact first?
Ideally, you would contact the funeral director first. However, if this responsibility hasn’t fallen to you, please let the nominated next of kin handle the proceedings.
How do I know if the funeral director is right for me?
Deciding whether or not a funeral director is right for you can be based on their years of experience or what kind of services they offer. Another thing to keep an eye on is whether they can guide you through the funeral planning process.

What should I decide?
Your first consultation with the funeral director can be a bit nervewracking. Especially as you’re dealing with your grief and loss of a loved one.
This is where the funeral director will take over and guide you through the process. It can be difficult making such decisions early on.
Some things to remember include:
- Know how you would like the service to proceed. Were you aware of your loved one’s preferences?
- Bring along photos for the memorial booklet and memorial video that can play during the service.
- What is your price point? It can be easy to get swept up in the nicest looking coffin or urn. However, it can be helpful to remember a price point for your loved one’s funeral.
