Death Away From Home

What should I do if a loved one dies away from home?

Perhaps your loved one lived hundreds of miles away, or dies while traveling. If you want the funeral service and burial to be held in your loved one’s home community, contact Haywood Funeral Home immediately, as soon as you learn of the death.

Family members should not personally contact a funeral home from the area where the death occurred. Doing so may incur greater expense for your family, and could complicate matters as well. Our funeral directors are experienced in collaborating with out-of-town funeral homes. We can handle the details to get your loved one returned home in the most efficient and cost-effective way. This may seem to go against common reasoning, but it is actually the easiest and most economical alternative.
