A Memorial Service after Cremation
The cremation takes place then at any time after your family can hold a memorial service. Often times the memorial service can take place weeks to even months after the cremation. This allows the family time to think about how exactly they would like the memorial service. The urn can act as the focal point of the service.
A Traditional Funeral with Cremation
This is much like our traditional funeral service that we offer. A traditional funeral occurs where the deceased is placed into a specially-selected cremation casket or in a rental casket. Also you have the option to hold a visitation before the funeral service. Once the funeral service has concluded the deceased is cremated as opposed to being buried. The cremated remains are then returned to you, at which point you can scatter, bury, or keep the remains in an urn.
