Cremation with a Funeral
Just because you are planning a cremation, doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have a funeral. A memorial service or traditional funeral is designed to give the family a chance to gather, say goodbye, and share memories about the person. In fact, some families choose the traditional plan of a viewing or visitation, funeral, and graveside service. The only difference is that the cremated ashes are used instead of a casket to hold the body.
Or, you might have the traditional viewing and funeral, and then have the ashes cremated after the services. Then, the ashes can be stored in an urn to be distributed in any way that you see fit.
Many families find it necessary to have a final service to pay their respects and honor the person that they loved. We encourage you to plan a gathering that will match your preferences and desires.
Why should you consider cremation instead of traditional burial? There are several benefits that you can expect from this service. Not only is cremation cheaper compared to other funeral services, but it also offers a variety of customizable options. You can choose the final resting place to be in a location other than a cemetery. Or, you can plan several places to memorialize the person if you wish.
Options to Consider for Cremation
Do you think that cremation might be the right solution? Talk to us to learn more about the options that are offered. We will discuss the services and help you put together a plan that is designed with the needs of your family in mind.
These are some of the choices that you might consider:
- Interment: Are you planning to entomb or bury the ashes after the cremation? You might choose a location in a burial plot or a memory garden. Our staff can discuss interment choices to help you pick a location that will match your desires. You can plan a memorial or gathering at the time if you wish.
- Graveside Services: If you are going to bury the ashes, then it might be a good idea to invite the family for a graveside service. Again, this gathering will be designed to match your preferences. Often, the graveside services are planned in the same way as a traditional burial. But, an urn with ashes will be laid in the ground instead of a large casket with the body.
- Scattering: Another option is to choose a final resting place where the ashes should be scattered. You might have a memorial garden or a favorite family vacation area. Choosing a meaningful location can have a big impact on the family. Instead of going to a cemetery when you want to visit, you can go to a place that had meaning to the deceased.
- Multiple Urns: When the body is cremated, you can choose to have the ashes in a single urn or multiple urns. Multiple urns give the option for a memorial in several locations. For example, you might choose to bury a portion of the ashes and keep the rest in a small urn at home. Or, the ashes can be divided among family members.
