If you have recently lost someone you love let us start by saying how sorry we are for your loss, and offering our sincerest condolences. Creative Cremation Services understands that this is a difficult time for you, and we want you to know that we are here to help you in any way that we can.
Although there are many options when it comes to funerals, one of the most popular choices is direct cremation (or simple cremation). The reason that families are opting for direct cremation is that cremation cost is steadily rising, and direct cremation is much less than a traditional embalming and burial.
The direct cremation cost advantage is because instead of paying for all of the things that go along with embalming and burial, you simply have to cover the cost of using our crematory to cremate your loved one - with no extra frills. Of course, there is an option to purchase an urn, and bury the ashes (if that is your family’s wish) but we find that many families choose to do something more unique and creative with the ashes of their loved one.
There are several different things that can be done with remains after cremation - which allows families to take the wishes of the deceased into consideration and do something that will truly honor them.
1. You can choose to bury the cremated remains. Local cemeteries do in fact have sections designated for cremated remains interment.
2. You can scatter the cremated remains with ash scattering services. This practice is becoming more and more popular as years go on. The law states that cremated remains may be interred on property that you own, crown land or in consecrated ground (i.e. cemetery).
3. Interment of cremated remains in a Columbarium. A Columbarium is an above ground Mausoleum designed specifically to store cremated remains, which gives families a place to visit - similar to a gravestone.
4. You can keep the cremated remains at home. Many families like to keep the cremated remains of their loved ones close to them and keep them in their homes.
As you can see, choosing to have a direct cremation does not limit your options - if anything it increases them. So - if you are considering direct cremation we urge you to get in touch with us. We would be happy to answer all of your questions, and make sure that you understand everything that is included, as well as the cost.
