Direct Disposer vs. Funeral Home


For those families choosing cremation it is important to share with you the difference between a funeral home and a direct disposer.

Under Florida law, a company or person can operate as a direct disposer establishment. This means you may not be meeting with a licensed funeral director in regard to the final arrangements for your loved one. A direct disposer is limited by law on what they can offer you. Direct disposers may not sell, conduct or arrange for burials, memorial services, visitations or viewings.

At Sunset Point Funeral Home, we are a FUNERAL HOME. Families can be assured at their time of need they will ALWAYS meet with a licensed funeral director to ensure proper arrangements will be handled for their loved one.
