Get Professional Advice When Choosing a Funeral Home in Pittsburgh
To wisely choose the right funeral home in Pittsburgh for your needs, talk to a Rome Monument funeral home advisor first to get sound advice on important funeral home considerations. A funeral home, funeral parlor or mortuary, provides a variety of burial and funeral services, and selecting the one that’s just right can be difficult for grieving families with no experience in the funeral process. Fortunately, Rome Monument’s experienced funeral-home advisors can answer all your funeral-home questions quickly and professionally and help you make the best decision—just call us anytime at 724-770-0100.
Funeral homes are not all created equal. Each has its own features, service strengths, advantages and weaknesses. Half the battle is knowing enough about a particular provider to really understand competencies, capabilities, limitations, and what will be provided. Mourning families need a funeral home that makes the process as easy, accommodating, effective, and memorable as possible—not one that adds stress to the occasion by not being up to the task. Families want a funeral home that can turn a sad, difficult process into a memorable and successful family event.

When considering funeral home options, a number of factors are worth close attention:
Location — Your funeral home should be conveniently located for attendance by family and friends, and within a reasonable distance of the cemetery, religious service, and other funeral related events.
Quality of Facility/Amenities — How many visitors can be properly accommodated in comfort and a style suitable to the occasion. Does the funeral home have the type of facilities needed (e.g., such as handicapped bathrooms, a private holding room before a service, etc.)? Is the facility aesthetically appealing in a manner that will ensure a respectful, inviting and positive experience?
Funeral Services Offered — Many funeral homes are religiously or culturally affiliated, and capable of properly accommodating related needs and protocols. Some funeral homes are well equipped to accommodate most any ceremonial, procedural or service need. Others are not. Does the funeral home offer the goods or services you want to purchase? Does the funeral director understand your religious or cultural needs and has the funeral home ever produced a funeral tailored to your religious or cultural customs?
Cremation Options — If you’re planning a cremation, do you want to work with a funeral home that operates its own crematory?
Burial Options and Services — Some funeral homes operate their own cemeteries.
Dedication to Customer Needs — Is the funeral provider dedicated to helping you achieve your funeral vision in accord with your beliefs and values?
General Price List Disclosure — Does the funeral home provide customers with a written, itemized price list separately identifying all the items and services the home offers, and the cost of each one, and does it make each service available separately, in compliance with law?
Full Disclosure — Does the funeral home director or sales representative answer all your questions and provide accurate information and guidance?
Pricing — Does the funeral home offer its goods and services at affordable and reasonable prices? Are the services provided and accommodations a good value?
- Options for Remains — Will the funeral provider explain your options and accommodate your preferences concerning disposition of loved one’s bodily or cremated remains?
In addition, we will provide you with a list of questions to ask funeral directors to help you make a decision on which best suits your needs.
