Direct Cremation: In this option, the decedent is transferred from the place of death to the crematory; there is no viewing or wake with the body present. It is possible for the family to have a gathering at the funeral home, with or without the cremated remains present, thereby giving the extended family members and friends the chance to draw together, share memories, and support each other during this very difficult time. Another option available to the family is either a private or public memorial service, with or without the cremated remains present. The cremated remains can then be interred at, or placed in a niche at a cemetery, or retained at the family’s home.
Viewing Followed by Cremation: This option allows the family to have a viewing of their loved one in a casket at the funeral home with or without a funeral service at a place of worship or the funeral chapel. The cremation of the body then follows, and the cremated remains are then interred at, or placed in a niche at a cemetery, or retained at the family’s home.
