“A good funeral gets the dead where they need to go, and the living where

they need to be.” - Thomas Lynch


Cremation

Cremation is becoming an increasingly common choice among Americans. We understand that this is not an easy topic to think about and discuss with your family.

The reasons for choosing cremation are varied and personal. You may choose cremation based on environmental considerations, philosophical or religious reasons, or even because you feel it is simpler or less complicated.

You may also choose cremation because it can be less expensive than traditional burial, although cremations vary widely in price based on your personal selections.

Regardless of the reason, cremation is only half of the story. Your plans for a viewing, visitation, funeral, or memorial service don’t have to change if you choose cremation. 

Just as with traditional burial, a funeral director or preneed specialist can help you to plan your services, whether they happen before or after cremation. There are a variety of options available, some of these include: 

  • Cremation following a funeral service and visitation 
  • Memorial service with or without the cremated remains present 
  • Religious service 
  • Direct cremation with no service 

Planning and setting aside funds for your final arrangements can provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your expenses are covered, and that you will be memorialized in a way that is meaningful to you and your family. Simply Speaking: Cremation is designed to help you better understand cremation, your options for a memorial, and the resources available to help you figure it all out.
