Other Funeral Home Facilities Include
Technology within our funeral home
Here at Hugh Flynn Funeral Directors, we are embracing technology more and more in our funeral home. We now offer families full use of our Wi-Fi and funeral webcasting services, incorporating different ways to make funeral services more meaningful to families and make them feel comfortable in these surroundings.
Many families would prefer to invite friends and family to visit them and their loved one in the family home but for many reasons, this may not be possible. Hugh Flynn Funeral Directors offer the opportunity to combine the use of a family home and our funeral home in these circumstances. In this scenario the funeral home would be used for a public gathering for extended relatives and friends over a specified period of time. The deceased may rest in the privacy of a family home before and after the use of our funeral home where immediate family have more time and privacy to come to terms with their loss.
