Do I Need A Casket If I Only Want Cremation?
There are several decisions to be taken when planning a funeral ceremony for a departed relative, which we at Willowbrook Cemetery understand. However, many people elect for cremation rather than burial.
Before you pass away, you can speak with our professionals to learn about the several options available and preplan accordingly. The expert will guide you through the process, ensuring that you receive the desired package and service. You can choose the casket you like in your preplan agreement. Your family will be relieved of all responsibility for this or any component of the cremation.
Types Of Caskets
People frequently inquire if a casket is required for a funeral. Yes, however, the casket does not have to be like the one used during a funeral.
If you're on a budget and don't want to spend a lot of money on a mahogany or metal casket, there are various options for a simple cremation casket, including wood or cardboard. Third-party companies frequently supply these, and you have numerous possibilities, including:
- Manufactured wood
- Mixed materials
Caskets are available in standard or customized configurations, depending on your requirements and budget. The crematorium's incineration chamber is designed to burn only wooden caskets; they will accept no metal coffins. Custom caskets may be designed using various materials and themes and any extra embellishments.
Most funeral homes provide a variety of packages from which you can choose the one that best meets your needs. You can discuss your preferences with the funeral director and then make your final choice. At Willowbrook Cemetery, we strive to make selecting the last resting place for a loved one as simple as possible. Our knowledgeable staff will assist you in choosing the best burial spot for your loved one in our tranquil cemetery.
