Among the many services provided by the Arthur F. White Funeral Home is the transfer of remains from one point to another.
This service can either be with or without the family in attendance.
Our location is in very close proximity to many of the busy cemeteries of Long Island. Saint Charles, Long Island National, Pinelawn Memorial Park, Mount Ararat, Beth Moses,Wellwood Cemetery and New Montefiore are all within a ten minute drive from us. Another advantage is that we are centrally location on Long Island, making travel to New York City and its major airports very convenient.
Different situations require different arrangements.
Often survivors are unable to travel to New York. Therefore when an out of state funeral home contacts us, we will tell them what day will be good for the burial but the burial time will not be definate.
Many times although the family is not present, a funeral director will say prayers at the cemetery. If a family prefers, we can arrange for clergy to meet us at the cemetery and we will join him or her in the committal service.
If a family will be in attendance, a mutual convenient day and time will be arranged.
Regarding the transfer of remains to New York when no viewing or wake is to be held out of state, it is usually more adventagous for the family to contact us directly. We would then employ the sevices of one of our funeral agents located where the deceased has passed awat and in cases like these the family will only need to deal with one funeral home.
We also send remains from New York to other states and countries. If we are going to other countries, we arrange all of the proper documentation required by that country's consulate. Each country has different requirements.
