Traditional Cremation

SPONSORED

Cremation is a rapidly growing trend in the United States, and in 2016 the National Funeral Directors Association reported that 50.2% of Americans chose cremation. Many families choosing cremation however are not aware that they can still have a healing and meaningful funeral experience, even if they choose cremation for their final form of disposition. According to respected grief experts, the funeral is a necessary part of the grieving process. While cremation is becoming a more common preference, it shouldn’t deter individuals and families from the benefits of having a funeral ritual or end of life commemoration.

In further review of the National Funeral Directors Association Cremation and Burial Report, less than half of Americans associate cremation with a memorial service; only 11.8 percent associate it with a funeral that includes a viewing or visitation; and more than 50 percent of Americans are not aware that you can have a funeral/visitation/viewing with the body before cremation takes place. So, what do these statistics tell us? That when families choose cremation, they are likely missing out on the opportunity to memorialize and commemorate the life of a loved one.

Cremation is a form of disposition, same as burial or entombment, and it is the funeral directors role and obligation to the families that they serve, to educate and provide the spectrum of options to families selecting cremation services.

No matter which option you choose – cremation with traditional service, viewing, or visitation; cremation with a memorial service; direct cremation without services/memorialization; or a combination of options – Our family of staff can assist you in finding a way to balance your family’s needs with your own personal wishes.
