The staff members of Las Rosas Bannworth Funeral Home will guide your family in creating a meaningful ceremony to honor the life and memory of a loved one. A ceremony can be anything you wish it to be: simple or elaborate, traditional or unique. No matter how it’s tailored, such a ceremony is an important step in recovering from loss.
Las Rosas Bannworth Funeral Home offers a full spectrum of funeral and cremation services. We are honored to assist you and your loved ones in your time of need. We serve the traditions of all cultures and religions in our community with the utmost respect and attention to detail. We also provide complete door to door repatriation options, returning the deceased to the country of origin, giving the family peace of mind that all details are taken care of and to make sure your personal desires are known and honored.
We pride ourselves in providing the funeral service that meets your needs and desires. Our funeral home provides a full range of funeral service options, from the traditional funeral service (i.e. viewing followed by burial) to immediate cremation service and combination thereof.
We are happy to explain each option:
Steps to Take at the Time of Passing:
Passing in an institution - When the death occurs at a hospital or nursing home, the medical staff should take care of all necessary legal steps. You just need to notify the medical staff that Las Rosas Funeral Home is handling the funeral arrangements so they can have you sign the necessary release paperwork.
Anticipated passing at home - Today, more people with terminal illnesses are electing to die at home under the care of hospice. In this situation, you just need to notify Hospice that Las Rosas Funeral Home is the funeral home of your choice. They will then take care of all necessary legal requirements. Many times when someone has a terminal illness, the family will elect to make pre-arrangements with us so they are not overwhelmed with the many important decisions at the time of death.
Unanticipated death at home or elsewhere - In these situations, immediately call 911. The police and emergency medical personnel will then determine the appropriate steps to be taken. Often, the police can release the human remains directly to our funeral home. However, in certain cases, the body may need to go to the Medical Examiner's office so that they can determine the cause of death.
Death out of the Elizabeth NJ area or NJ state - If the death occurs outside of the Elizabeth area or New Jersey, you should call Las Rosas Bannworth Funeral Home at (908) 352- 6664. We can coordinate with a local funeral director at the place of death. Having connections with numerous companies, we can often save families money by having our firm make the arrangements. Shortly after the death occurs, you will meet with us to arrange the funeral service for your loved one. During this conference, we will ask for personal information about the deceased in order to help plan the funeral and complete the necessary documents.
At Las Rosas Bannworth Funeral Home, we pride ourselves on providing quality products and a dignified, compassionate service at an affordable cost. We understand that the emotional and financial burdens can be overwhelming, and our goal is to alleviate as much stress as possible during this difficult time.
