As cremation services become a more widely selected option, the practices associated with cremation are also evolving. Today, you often have the same services accompanying a cremation that are found with a traditional burial. The options for placement of physical remains (cremains) are also increasing. With cremations, you will make many of the same decisions you would make with a traditional funeral service:
- Most families choose to have a service of some type to celebrate the life of their loved one. Through this memorial, permission is given to say good-bye, to grieve with others, to share memories, and to begin the healing.
- Do you want a traditional funeral service with the remains present prior to cremation, or a memorial service without the remains present?
- What personal tributes, such as a video, would you like to include?
- What kind of visitation arrangements would be appropriate for your family?
- Where will the remains be laid to rest? A traditional gravesite may be used, with a headstone or memorial that’s the same as a traditional burial. Some families choose to scatter cremated remains at a favorite location (with proper permission), or keep the remains in an urn.
- What kind of urn or container would you like to use for final remains?
