About Direct Cremation

Direct cremation is a time-honored tradition when it comes to the death and final preparation of a loved one. In most ceremonies involving direct cremation, viewing of your loved one’s body and actual ground burial are often procedures that do not take place. Under certain circumstances at the request of the family these services may still be observed.

The passing of a loved one can accrue a lot of unforeseen expenses. Direct cremation is by far the most affordable option available. Your loved one will be cremated in the days soon after their death, meaning that a traditional funeral service is no longer required. Most families choose to have a memorial service in lieu of a funeral service when they choose to have their loved one cremated.

Looking for high quality low cost funeral and cremation services near you? Some of the benefits of choosing to cremate your loved one include avoiding expensive transportation, worrying about a tombstone, and preparation costs for the deceased’s body. Direct cremation also alleviates the stress of having to buy a plot and saves land in the end.
