What to Bring to an Arrangement Conference
After the death of a loved one, you will need to make several difficult decisions, but our licensed funeral directors are here to help you make arrangements that are beautiful, memorable and within your resources. The first thing we will need to do is schedule an arrangement conference.
At this conference we will plan the details of your funeral service as well as collect vital statistic data to fill out the death certificate.
What Takes Place during an Arrangement Conference?
When you arrive at our funeral home in Albuquerque, New Mexico, you will be greeted by our licensed funeral directors. You will be given a full list of our funeral services, and be taken through the process of planning a funeral service, cremation service, or memorial service that is meaningful and reflective of your loved one‘s life.
What Should You Bring to the Arrangement Conference?
Our funeral directors will need vital statistical information to file the death certificate with the state of New Mexico, such as social security number, birth date, birth place, death date, and:
- Deceased full legal name
- Father’s full name
- Mother’s full maiden name
- A list of survivors
- A list of family members who died before the deceased
- A list of pallbearers and honorary pallbearers
- Veteran’s discharge papers (DD214)
- Place of final disposition, or if you have previously bought a cemetery plot
Other items you may want to bring include clothes, jewelry and any other personal items you would want your loved one to wear during the services.
You may also bring any items to help you personalize the services—such as photos, music, or special mementos.
If you are unable to bring these items to the initial arrangement conference, we will gladly set up another time to do this.
