Direct Cremation in Wayne County

Direct cremation is cremation that is conducted prior to any services. Direct cremation offers many benefits, including affordability. As it is unnecessary to prepare the departed for a viewing and open-casket service when cremation is chosen, the expense related to embalming and other preparation are not incurred with cremation. Additionally, there are no added costs of a traditional burial, so direct cremation costs less than other options.

Another benefit of cremation is environmental friendliness. Traditional burial uses many limited resources, including green space and sometimes scarce woods, while cremation allows those resources to be preserved.

Cremation also benefits today’s more mobile lifestyle, with no concern for tending to gravesites left behind.

Cremation is carried out with the utmost respect for the departed. A carefully controlled system is utilized which ensures proper identification of remains, and the process is usually completed in about three hours. There are many service options available when cremation is chosen. Families can opt for a traditional funeral service at the funeral home, at a memorial service at the funeral home, or in a place that was meaningful to the departed. Ashes can be retained in full or in part by the family, or they can be scattered in a location that has special significance for your loved one.
