When a Death Occurs:

The staff of the Holcombe-Fisher Funeral Home is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, three hundred and sixty-five days of the year. Once the death has occurred, whether it be in a hospital, nursing home, residence, or even out of state, notify the funeral home immediately. We will make arrangements for the removal of the deceased from the place of death to the Funeral Home, as well as set up a time to make the final arrangements. Some items you will need to bring to the arrangement conference regarding the deceased are as follows:

  •  Name As Used On All Legal Documents
  •  Date and Place of Birth
  •  Social Security Number
  •  Father's Name
  •  Mother's Maiden Name
  •  Clothing for Deceased
  •  Recent Photo if Available
  •  Copy of Discharge Papers if Deceased was a Veteran
  •  Cemetery Deed if Applicable

What is a Funeral?

A funeral is an opportunity for relatives, friends and neighbors to reflect upon and celebrate the life of the deceased, as well as say "good-bye." It is an important ritual which has been practiced by all cultures since the dawn of time. Each culture may do something a little different, but the idea of a ceremonial good-bye is universal. Here at Holcombe-Fisher, we pride ourselves on serving all cultures and faiths. Whether it be a traditional funeral or something unique and special, the Fisher family and staff will ensure that the family's wishes and desires are attended to with the utmost dignity and respect.


What does a funeral director do?

A funeral director handles all the details and necessary arrangements associated with the death of a loved one. Since 1894 when Charles Holcombe opened the Holcombe Funeral Home, the Holcombe and Fisher families have been serving Hunterdon County and surrounding areas. This tradition continues today with Charles's great-grandson, Manager Charles Holcombe Fisher and great-great grandson, Director Robert Fisher Bogart, along with Director Daniel James Wright. From the moment of death, one, if not all of these men will be with you every step of the way. From the removal of the deceased from the place of death to the funeral home, they will handle all the necessary paperwork, file all permits, notify and arrange for all the funeral services (i.e., compose obituary notices, notify clergy, arrange for the cemetery, perform the embalming operation, do all the dressing, casketing, cosmetic and restorative work, etc.) and be available to you and your family twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year.

What types of services do you offer?

Our list of services is broad and designed to meet the needs of the community. We offer:

  •  Traditional Funerals
  •  Memorial Services
  •  Cremations
  •  Military Services
  •  Disinternments
  •  International and Domestic Shipment
  •  Preplanning and Prepayment

As stated before, here at Holcombe-Fisher, we pride ourselves on serving all peoples and all faiths with the same dignity and respect that we treat our own families. If you desire something not specifically mentioned, please feel free to call and discuss it with one of the directors.

What about Social Security?

The funeral home will notify Social Security that the death has occurred. If there is a surviving spouse, he or she is entitled to a one time $255 death benefit. Additionally other benefits may be in order, such as in the case of a deceased leaving behind minor children. For further information, please call us or visit the social security homepage at www.ssa.gov/pubs/deathbenefits.htm


What about Veterans' Benefits and Military Honors?

Again, the funeral home will guide you through the process of applying for veterans' benefits and arranging for military honors. Depending on years served, reason for discharge, wounded in action status, etc., certain veterans' may be eligible for different benefits. Please call and one of the directors will help you with your individual situation. For further information, please visit the Veterans' Benefit page at www.cem.va.gov/burial.htm and the Military Honors homepage at www.militaryfuneralhonors.osd.mil/
