The Helpful Carriage

In the flurry of things that happen when a loved one dies, one requirement is that someone must sit down to write an obituary.

When a loved one dies a facet of the death care that follows is to handle any legal requirements and requests. A few legal situations that can arise involve preparing the funeral, insurance policies and probate.

Whether you’re arranging a funeral of a loved one, or considering how you would like your own end of life arrangements to go, you may wonder what

Last month at R.W. Baker we added an outstanding feature to our website called a Virtual Tour. This tour allows our clients and guests to take a 360 online walk-through of our Suffolk and Wakefield facility. We know that planning services for your loved ones can be an overwhelming experience and at R.W. Baker we want to make it as comfortable and easy as possible. Many times not all family members and friends can participate in viewing facilities prior to a service because they live out of state, or even out of the country. These new tours allow for a unique level of funeral planning.

Mr. John Constant was one of the first English speaking settlers in the Suffolk, Virginia area. He established a trading business and built a warehouse on the Nansemond River. He named this area Constant's Wharf.

The military funeral is unlike any other service in the world. While most of us are aware of the honors and services given at the graveside, the military process begins as soon as the tragedy occurs.
