Overview of Cremation
Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Cremation simply expedites the process of reducing a body to bone fragments through application of intense heat. After cremation the bones are ground to small fragments. What is done before or after the cremation is up to the survivors, or up to you. Contrary to what some people believe, cremation does not limit choices, but, in fact, increases one’s options. It is a process which is performed in a respectful and dignified manner and can be memorialized in many ways.

Traditional Service followed with Cremation

This service will be just like a Traditional Funeral Service except cremation will follow. This can be accommodated by the use of a rental casket. Following the viewing, service or ceremony, and eventual cremation, the cremated remains can be buried, properly scattered, made into a diamond or returned to the family for safe keeping.

Cremation with Memorial Service

The memorial service is a gathering where the body is not present. Some people may choose no not have a visitation, but would prefer a memorial service. This may provide closure and the comfort for family and friends. Having some type of service or ceremony is also a key ingredient to a healthy recovery of a loss due to a death. The cremated remains can be buried, properly scattered, made into a diamond or returned to the family for safe keeping.

Direct Cremation- No Service

People who prefer not to have any service or gathering can contact the funeral director for transportation, obituaries, filing the death certificate, disposition permit and any other authorizations or need. The cremated remains can be buried, properly scattered, made into a diamond or returned to the family for safe keeping.
