Namaskaram, I am the eldest of 2 daughters and my father is performing the sraaddha of my late mother . Many vaadhyaars have suggested that my father do only the hiranya sraadha and not the sraadha with homam as my parents do not have a son living. I need your clarification whether my father can perform the latter. Thanks

Your father can perform the Srardham with Homam (without Aupasanam/Agni santhanam).  He can, either do perform with Sankalpa srardham (minus homam but with offering food after punyavachanam and then Aaradhanam etc.) by feeding two Brahmins or by Hiranyam by offering raw rice, banana etc. is the last option. Agni Santhanam & Aupasanam  can only be performed with wife; so a widower has no option but to perform only the Srardham part of the Homam. If age factor, availability of Bruhaspathi and monetary considerations forces, then HiraNya srardham is recommended but as a last option.
