Remembering a Loved One

When choosing cremation, families are afforded a great deal of flexibility when deciding upon funeral and cemetery arrangements. Some families choose to have a complete funeral service with viewing and have their loved one cremated after the service. Others may choose to have a memorial service after cremation, thereby not requiring the embalming and viewing. Another option is for a committal, or scattering ceremony, after cremation. These can be held at a cemetery, ceremonial garden, or on public or private property. No services at all are required, if this is what a family prefers. Families may also choose to have cremated remains returned to their care.

Direct Cremation

The O’Halloran and Murphy Funeral Home offers direct cremation services to the Ramsey and Hennepin County region. Cremation is an increasingly popular means of final disposition of remains, and it is expected that by 2018 more than 50% of Americans will choose cremation.

There are several key factors contributing to the growth of cremation, including a drive for new traditions, a variety of available service options, and greater affordability. Contributing to the cost factor of traditional burial are the expenses associated with embalming, viewing, and burial. While cost may not be the foremost consideration in one’s mind during a time of grief, reducing these costs can help to lessen stress at a time when many people are already struggling emotionally. Choosing cremation is also viewed as environmentally friendly, as it preserves many of the resources used in a traditional burial and doesn’t require the use of already-limited space for burial.

An awareness that cremation is carried out with the utmost reverence and respect for the deceased can bring comfort to loved ones as they begin their journey toward healing. Great care is taken with each cremation, as each is performed individually in a carefully controlled system. The entire process typically takes less than three hours from beginning to end.
