Can I still have a funeral or celebration gathering
Families choosing cremation have the same opportunities for a funeral or
celebration gathering as do families choosing burial. The choice to have
cremation is just a decision about the method of disposition of a body, not a
choice for or against a funeral service.
Funeral service or gathering options available when cremation is chosen can include:
*Cremation following a more traditional service in a chapel or
church. This usually includes viewing and having the body present at
* Cremation with a viewing time for family and friends followed by a "memorial service" (a service without the body present).
* Cremation without viewing and either preceding or following a memorial service.
* Cremation with viewing and no formal service.
* Cremation without viewing either preceding or following a reception time for the family and friends to gather and reminisce.
* Cremation without viewing or ceremony.
The family can decide whether or not the actual urn is to be present when a memorial service is planned.After the cremation process the remains may be:
* Placed in our cemetery either on a grave space with a loved one, in a columbarium or mausoleum niche or scattered in one of our "scattering areas"
* Returned to the family or delivered to another cemetery for placement
* Memorialized in other ways
The cremated remains may also be divided upon proper request from the family
with portions being placed into "keepsake" urns and jewelry for
family members to keep and treasure. The remaining portion can then be placed
using any of the above methods.
Our directors are able to help you explore all of the options and decisions with cremation. Some firms may not have the ability to offer you the same or as many options since they may not have their own crematory or may not have a full complement of facilities such as viewing rooms, chapels, reception areas and a cemetery.
