You will need to initially contact the funeral chapel by
phone to make arrangements for bringing the deceased to the chapel. It is
important to find out the possible funeral times and to clear a time with the
Rabbi or Religious Advisor.
The chapel you use will make arrangements for the chapel,
coffin, and transportation. You could gather at the chapel and continue to
the cemetery or you can do a gravesite service.
The chapel closest to Great Neck, is
55 N Station Plaza, Great Neck, NY
When you go to the funeral home to make arrangements,
you will need the following information:
deceased and Hebrew name
3.Next of kin

cemetery. The chapel will ask you for a deed.
Complete payment for the funeral is expected upon
completion of the funeral arrangements. You can pay by personal check. A portion
can usually be paid by credit card, after discussion with the chapel.
You will be asked, by the chapel, how many death certificates they should order
for you. Keep in mind that quite a few will be needed as they must be presented
for every legal transaction, i.e. probate of will, bank accounts, stock and
bond accounts, insurance, etc.
