Growing trends suggest personalization and green ceremonies on the rise for funerals
West Ryde, NSW -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/07/2014 -- As a leading voice for the funeral industry, the National Funeral Director’s Association has reported one of the most prevalent trends seen by funeral directors is the personalization of services. As reported on their website, “Today, funeral service consumers are planning funeral services that are as unique as the person who died. The idea of personalization has resulted in an explosion of unique services that reflect the hobbies, passions and interests of someone who has died."
According to Karen Laing, spokesperson for Lady Anne Funerals, this is a trend they embrace. Says Laing, "Today's funeral director services in Sydney ensures the faith or philosophy of the deceased is celebrated in a number of different manners. Our directors are always available to help conduct the funeral service in a manner that will help share the story of the life of the loved one, regardless of their background or faith."
By use of personalization, funeral service planning in Sydney can be more specialized than ever before, say experts in the field. Funeral consultants suggest ways families can personalize their loved one’s funeral, and are open to family ideas and input. Laing concurs, saying, “We listen to our families and take care of everything, making sure nothing is left to chance. Every family and person is unique and the service we provide for them is just as memorable as they were. Our values are simple, and our team of lady funeral directors aim to provide a memorable service for every family we serve. We don’t believe in the red tape and rigidity of larger franchise funeral homes, we simply focus on allowing loved ones to grieve and remember their loved ones the way they want and celebrate the life of their loved one in the fashion they want. If it means playing, “Take Me Out to the Ball Park " or whatever their favorite song is, we are happy to do it.”
Other trends increasing in popularity in the funeral industry include incorporating environmental friendly practices to make a green friendly service, says Laing. "If it’s important to your loved one to have locally grown organic flowers or embalming with formaldehyde-free products, let us know and we will steer you in the right direction. Additionally, we can point you toward biodegradable caskets."
