One question that we hear a lot is with regard to switching from one funeral home to another after pre-planning funeral services. There are rights that you do have with regard to planning and transferring. Problems do arise and plans do need to be changed. It is understandable that these things happen and you shouldn't have to worry about being caught in red tape if you do have to switch funeral homes at any point throughout the process.

Transfering your plans is not a bother and absolutely no hassle for you. Making your planning process easier and as smooth as possible is what we are here for. Any funeral home will gladly transfer any necessary information and plans to another without putting any undue pressure on you. Initiating a transfer is as simple as informing your current funeral home where you wish to shift to. They will then collaborate between each other and ensure that all your needs are covered without any penalty or fee. The one absolute requirement is a signature from you to confirm and we cover the rest.

Your arrangements with regard to your funeral service are personal and intimate. Furthermore, they are uniquely tailored to you and are meant to perfectly reflect your vision. Catering to your needs is the number one priority of any funeral home and if your circumstances do change, you should not worry about how altering your plans might affect you.

In this hard time, we aim to help ease you through with as few issues as possible. If you require anything or need any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us at Nutmeg Funeral Home.
