Prefering On Cremation May Be A Growing Trend

Traditional burial customs have been undergoing some changes over time. Many people now select a Funeral Cremation. It can be performed before or after a memorial service is held. The primary reason for this preference is that the cost is less.

The idea is horrifying to some and it is even against some religions. However, the process of embalming is also fraught with unpleasant implications. It depends on the personal preferences of each family.

The first consideration after a death is who to select as the funeral director for final arrangements. The remains being treated in a respectful manner is most important, whether the body is embalmed or cremated. A memorial service can be arranged to follow either process.

There is also the option of burying the cremains, which is the term for the cremated remains, in a cemetery plot. Another option is to keep the ashes in a funerary urn. Ashes may also be scattered over water or at a location selected by the deceased prior to death.

This manner of disposal does not preclude a memorial service of any kind, including a graveside service if the ashes are to be buried. Some cultures demand the family witness the actual cremation. Most funeral directors will be agreeable to allowing this.

A columbarium is an indoor or outdoor building with spaces to hold the cremains of multiple decedents. Each one has a plaque to identify the person interred within. The columbarium is located on cemetery grounds.

Alternatively, the ashes can be placed in an urn. If there are multiple family members, smaller urns can be purchased to each hold a portion of the cremains. In this way, all who want to keep a part of the loved one can have their wishes accommodated.

Many times, disagreements among family members can be avoided by Funeral Cremation and the use of multiple urns. After the process is completed, a memorial service and scattering or burial of the ashes can be held. If burial is chosen, the deceased will be placed in the family plot with those who preceded him in death.
