About This Business

Traditionally, the funeral will be a complete funeral, which commonly includes a family or public viewing of the deceased. Following this will be a service, typically in the church or at the funeral home. This would be followed by the earth or above ground burial of the casketed remains or cremation. Caskets and urns may cost from several hundred dollars to several thousands of dollars depending on the material that they are constructed of.

The memorial service is provided for the deceased without the body present. This may take place after an earth burial, donation of the body to an institution such as a school, cremation (sometimes the cremains are present), entombment, or burial at sea. Typically these services take place at the funeral home and may include prayers, poems, or songs to remember the deceased. Pictures of your loved ones are setup in the Chapel in place of human remains.

Over 6,000 funerals including names you probably know like Sarah Vaughn, Whitney Houston, John Houston (Whitney’s father), Congressman Donald Payne, Lance Owens (Queen Latifah’s brother), and Emily Miles (Newark fashion designer) have been held at Whigham Funeral Home to memorialize all of their lives lived. Though regardless of popularity, every family receives the same gold service whether they’re the very rich or the very rich in heart.
