Reasons Why Cremation Services Are Chosen
- Flexible- Other funeral services require that the arrangements take place within 10 days after a loved one has passed. However, this can be difficult for families who live out of town. Cremation services are flexible in the sense that they can take place when it is easiest for the family. This could be weeks or months later.
- Convenient- Planning funeral services for your loved one can be overwhelming. Cremation services are generally not as emotionally draining.
- Creative- Cremation services give the family some creativity in how they want to honor the life of their loved one. Ashes can be placed in an urn and displayed in someone’s home, scattered in a favorite spot, put inside jewelry, and more.
- Affordable- Cremation services can be less expensive than traditional burial options, depending on the services you decide to have.
Planning a Memorial Service After Cremation
During traditional burials, the deceased is laid to rest in a casket and the wake often features an open viewing of the body. When someone elects to be cremated upon their passing, this opportunity is taken off the table. There are many other ways, however, to make a memorial service meaningful after cremation. For example, scattering the remains around various places that were important to your loved one is a common practice. The ability to do just that is a large part of the appeal of cremation for many people. A burial of sorts can still be performed as well if the ashes are being interred in a columbarium. A cremation memorial can be as similar to or as unique from a burial memorial as desired. There is no “wrong” way to honor someone’s life, simply make sure to discuss their wishes with them ahead of time.
