Planning a cremation ceremony can be a challenging task if you’ve recently lost a loved one. Remember that choosing cremation doesn’t mean you can’t have a memorial or funeral service. If it suits you and your loved ones, you can choose to have a religious or non-religious service to honor the memory of your loved one before or after the cremation process. Talk to your local funeral home about arranging for a ceremony to fit your preferences.
After the body is cremated, you have several options. You may bury the remains in a casket or urn during a traditional funeral service at a cemetery. Or, you may choose to place the urn in the niche of a columbarium or inside a memorial bench. Some families decide to scatter the ashes in a special place or keep the urn at the home of a family member.
