Cremation services are an increasingly popular method of saying farewell to loved ones and come with a number of benefits, including:
A cremation service is often much easier to organise than a burial service. When people choose to organise a burial service for their loved one, they usually opt for a traditional funeral service alongside it. This will require you to plan a visitation, coordinate everything with the cemetery, organise pallbearers and more. While it is possible to hold a traditional funeral with a cremation, many people choose to have a memorial service or a celebration of life instead. These ceremonies do not require as much planning or coordination on the days that immediately follow the death of your loved one when your family is still reacting to the news.
With a burial service, you have two options. You can either choose to place the casket in a mausoleum or choose to have it interred underground in a plot. Cremation, however, offers you a number of other options regarding what can be done with the ashes of your loved one. You can store them in an urn, you can scatter them in the location of your choice, you can keep a small portion of them in a piece of jewellery, and many more creative options.
With a traditional burial service, you will have a limited amount of time to arrange a funeral, which can put added pressure on your family at an already difficult time. Scheduling a venue that can accommodate your friends and family at the perfect time can be difficult, but with a cremation service, you have plenty of time to reserve a location, order the urn and add a number of personal touches to make the service as special as possible.
