The loss of a loved one comes with a lot of questions. What do I do next? Who can I turn to? How will I get everything done? How much does a memorial cost? We have decades of expertise in the funeral and cemetery profession, and as a result, we also have the answers you’re likely looking for. Please browse our list of frequently asked questions below, and contact us for further assistance.
A death has occurred. What do I do first?
We understand this is a very emotional time, but there are professionals that will help you get through this. First, contact a local funeral home to inform them that a death has occurred and make arrangements to have them take your loved one into their care. Second, contact Eternal Resorts at 844-717-8591 and provide us with the information of the funeral home you have selected. Our professionals will connect with the chosen funeral home and will start the coordination process of transporting your loved one to the chosen Eternal Resorts destination, after local services have been completed.

For international transportation, Eternal Resorts will work with your chosen funeral home to coordinate all transportation logistics. Once the necessary paperwork is complete and validated, Eternal Resorts will be your personal concierge for the safe transport of the remains to the property you selected. If the loss occurs near one of our U.S. locations, please contact the location directly to arrange pick-up.
