Cremation Facts – Everything You Need To Know
Cremations are increasingly popular in contrast to regular burials today, owing to the numerous benefits they provide. Apart from being exceedingly easy and economical, cremation rituals are also ecologically friendly. At George Darte Funeral Home, over the years we have conducted countless cremations. Here is a simple primer to help you grasp the essentials of cremation practice.
1. First Things First
After death, the deceased’s family calls us requesting the cremation. We are responsible for planning and completing all the essential technicalities ahead of the ceremony. Many families like to be present at the crematorium throughout the cremation process so they may perform rituals. This is allowed if families communicate their wishes ahead of time to the crematorium staff. After the cremation, the ashes in an urn will be given to the relatives. These ashes may subsequently be stored in different ways per the family’s wish.
2. Retaining The Ashes
The ashes might be preserved in or outside the family’s residence. People typically bury the cremated remains in a cemetery i.e. either the ground or store the urn in a columbarium, to identify a location with the memory of the individual. Some individuals also opt for unique methods like sprinkling the ashes at areas of attachment or turning them into keepsakes.
3. Organizing A Memorial Service
A memorial ceremony allows the family to say goodbye and grieve jointly, with all the other family members of the departed. We provide comprehensive support for planning a memorial ceremony according to your preferences and specifications. You might arrange for a memorial ceremony following the final cremation based on your desire and convenience.
