Aug 30, 2008
Cremation is an alternative to the traditional funeral service. With cremation you have many options that you might not be aware of that can help your family through the hard process of losing a loved one.

You can choose to hold a memorial cremation service with your local funeral home this way everyone can come together to say goodbye to the lost loved one, and have a time to reflect on all the memories you have shared together. You can also use a rental casket, and have a viewing of your loved one before the cremation has been preformed. This is wonderful because it gives everyone a chance to have one last look at there loved one. Cremation services can be held in your local funeral home, a church, or any other location you fill is the best location to hold your services.

Cremation Urns are a wonderful way to remember your loved one and they come in all shapes and sizes. With a cremation urn you are able to store the cremation ashes in a container of your choice that will fit your taste. Cremation urns come in vase, wood, marble, photo, bronze, and many other materials and formats.

Some people prefer to release the cremation ashes in a particular location of importance to the family. Such as a favorite lake, garden, ocean, etc. This is a wonderful method of allowing closer for the family as the say goodbye to their loved one.

One major benefit of cremation is that it is cheaper than a traditional funeral service, and for families that might be struggling financially cremation might be the best option for them to look into. With a traditional funeral there is the cost of embalming, funeral service, casket, burial marker, plot, and many other expenses that you are not forced to deal with if you choose cremation. Plus, is the body is donated to science in many cases the cremation can be received free to the family.

If you choose cremation you can still have all the services offered for a regular funeral. Cremation is becoming more popular in the United States and in some states has become the majority choose over traditional funeral services, and with the increase of cremations in the United States, so have the options for a cremation increased.

Now, that you know some of the options for cremation I would advise you to speak with a local funeral director to help you plan out your cremation service. A local funeral director can assist you with any questions that you have about the cremation process, and can also inform you as to what services that their funeral home has to offer. Remember you can choose any funeral home you want to hold your cremation services, so be sure to ask plenty of questions, and make sure that the funeral home is doing their part to help you through this difficult time of loss. The funeral home should be knowledgeable and helpful. If they are not I would look for a different funeral home that can better assist you.
