What happens if I should die when I'm away from home, and my family wants my funeral and burial back in my hometown?

I do get asked this question often, and it does occur on occasion. If a person dies while they are on vacation or away visiting friends or relatives, it is always best to have the family call their hometown funeral home first. By doing this, a family would only be paying the professional services portion of the funeral bill to one funeral home instead of two. After the family calls their hometown funeral director, that funeral director can refer to a network of reputable funeral homes in the area that the death occurs for their assistance. In the case of traditional funeral this would typically mean that the funeral home contacted would transfer the deceased to their funeral home and prepare the body for transfer (usually by airlines) to the hometown funeral home. By calling their hometown funeral home, the family will have the comfort and convenience of dealing only with someone who they know and trust.
