CREMATION WITH A GRAVESIDE SERVICE
“A small and simple service to remember a loved one”
After the cremation has taken place, friends and family may gather to celebrate the deceased’s life at a graveside memorial service. With this option, the cremated body is present at the time of the service and can either be inurned in the ground or placed into a mausoleum, niche, or columbarium.
SIMPLE OR DIRECT CREMATION
“No Visitation, No Farewell, Simple Disposition”
Direct cremation does not involve any sort of formal rite or religious service. After identification of the deceased by the family and a legally required waiting period of twenty-four hours, the body is cremated. Each body is cremated separately and the cremated body is returned to the family.
WHAT CAN BE DONE WITH THE CREMATED BODY?
After the cremation takes place, there are decisions to be made about what to do with the cremated body, such as selecting an urn, an urn vault, cremation jewelry, or other cremation products, if the family chooses to do so. We offer a wide selection of urns and other cremation products for your consideration. There are a great variety of urns and other cremation products available today.
There are other options as well. The cremated body can be buried in a cemetery or placed in a mausoleum, niche, or columbarium. Some cemeteries have special gardens where the cremated body may be scattered. Sometimes, families choose to have their loved one incorporated into an Eternal Reef or sent into space orbit through Celestis Company. Many families, who select these options, choose to have a service at that time.
