When a family member dies, you probably want to grant the last wishes of the person as much as possible. This includes how the person wants to be buried. Some people wish to be cremated, and a funeral home can help you through the process so that you can learn more about the benefits. Cremation is often less expensive than a burial and funeral. After the person passes away, the funeral home will arrive to get the body for transport back to the funeral home. Some funeral homes will let family and friends gather before the body is sent away to be cremated. This can be a way to remember the family member as they would in a typical visitation service.
A casket can be rented for the funeral service is the family wishes to have one, or there can be a table with pictures and the urn of the remains of the person on the table. A cremation is something that many people are choosing because of the price and that the services offered are much the same as they would be for a typical funeral. The ashes can be scattered at a favorite place, kept at the home of a family member or placed in a mausoleum. They can also be buried in a grave at a later date.
