4 Types of Cremation- Understanding the Differences
After a person’s death, the family will either cremate or bury the remains. The latter is the traditional method of disposition and cremation is a newer concept for most. We at Willowbrook Cemetery have seen that clients are curious about the cremation process.
Types Of Cremations
The cremation trend is becoming more acceptable now, with many communities opting for it. Sometimes, people that preplan their funeral also choose cremation. Most people believe that there is only one type of cremation, but there are multiple methods involved and here we look at what they are:
- Cremation With A Traditional Service - This process involves conducting a regular cremation and a traditional funeral service where the body is embalmed, and a casket is used during the funeral service.
- Cremation With A Memorial Service - In this form of cremation, the ashes are placed in an urn at the venue where the memorial service is to be held. There are no mortal remains, and family and friends gather to pay their respects to the deceased person just as they would at a standard memorial service.
- Direct Cremation - This is a cremation without any embalming or ceremony. There is no funeral service or visitation, and the person is cremated soon after his or her death, which makes it a cost-effective method of disposition.
- Cremation Where The Body Is Donated To Science - Sometimes, people want to donate their mortal remains to science. In these cases, the organization conducts the cremation, and they do this free of cost.
