Some people are worried that cremation might create some kind of problem when it comes to funerals or memorial services. That’s totally understandable. Cremation remains kind of an unknown for many families. But the good news is that cremation really doesn’t create any issues for funeral plans or any other kind of service. There is a lot of flexibility associated with cremation, and that’s always a good thing. If you or someone you know is looking into cremation services in or near Prince Albert, SK, you should know that there is a funeral home in your area that can handle all of your needs. That means that whether you choose cremation or burial, there are plenty of solutions when it comes to your funeral-related needs.
Cherished Memories Funeral Services & Crematory, Inc. knows that you may well have some reluctance when it comes to cremation. And of course, it really isn’t our job to talk you into anything one way or the other. If cremation isn’t right for you, it is time to make burial arrangements. That said, we do want those we work with to understand their options. We believe that everyone has a right to information and all of the support that is associated therewith. You should never feel as though you are alone throughout this process. You aren’t. Someone is always here for you, and speaking to them may make a real difference. So don’t hesitate to get in touch with a funeral director and discuss your options in greater detail.
Cremation is certainly different from burial. In fact, there are a lot of differences, and they are all pretty important. Understanding those differences may be crucial when it comes to making some kind of decision. Choosing between the two options can be difficult, or it can be incredibly straightforward for some people. Everyone is different. The important thing to remember is that cremation really shouldn’t affect your funeral plans.
Cremation may take place before or after a funeral service. Keep in mind that funerals themselves typically take place just days after a loved one passes away. Cremation can be scheduled to take place before that funeral or as late as two weeks after someone passes away. That creates a lot of flexibility when it comes to funeral plans and how they may or may not be impacted by cremation.
Obviously there are some implications associated with someone being cremated before a funeral. The body of the deceased won’t be available for a traditional viewing, though cremated remains can certainly be present. This is worth thinking about, at least with respect to when you wish the cremation to occur. Some families really like the idea of a viewing (or some kind of wake) so that they can say goodbye to the deceased more directly. That said, there certainly isn’t a rule requiring you to have some kind of viewing or wake. Much depends on the family itself. Just remember that you can always have someone cremated after the funeral itself, so cremation doesn’t inherently prevent a viewing from taking place.
