1. Give Us A Call
When a death occurs anytime day or night, all you need to do is call Larkin's 24-hour phone number – (801)-363-5781.
You will always speak to a Larkin employee, who will answer any questions and will gather necessary information
for us to receive your loved one into our care. (Be assured that once we have received your loved one, he/she will
never leave Larkin's care.) An appointment time will be set for you and any family members to meet with a Larkin
funeral director (in person or virtually) to begin making funeral (final) arrangements.
During the arrangement conference, your Larkin funeral director will gently and professionally assist you through
every detail in creating a funeral service that honors your loved one and celebrates a life well lived.
2. Contact Your Spiritual Advisor
You and your family will want to inform your
clergy or spiritual advisor as well as family members and friends of
your loved one’s passing.
3. The Funeral Director
Upon arrival for the arrangement conference,
your funeral director will promptly greet you and your family. He or she
will then help you personalize and create the service that is right for
Our professional staff is experienced to plan
and coordinate funeral services for all faiths. We are also the funeral
and cremation experts along the Wasatch Front.
4. Gather Information
We will need a photo
and text for the obituary and funeral service program. Whether funeral
services or cremation services have been selected, we need the clothing for your loved one.
An appointment can be made if it is the
family’s desire to participate with the dressing, which is often a very
important step in the mourning process.
5. Veteran Information
If your loved one was a veteran, it will be of
benefit to bring the discharge papers and/or date of service as well to
the arrangement conference. It will then be our privilege to assist in
the filing process for veteran’s benefits and securing an honorarium
for the graveside service, if the family desires.
