4 Types Of Cremation: Understanding The Differences
At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we have seen that although cremations are becoming more commonplace today, most people are not sure about what the process involves. Many aren’t even aware that there are different types of cremations.
Types of Cremations
Here we discuss what these types are. If you are considering preplanning a funeral, this will help you understand what it involves. The four main types of funerals are:
1. Cremation + A Traditional Service
As the name suggests, this is a cremation and a traditional service and included a casket rental as well as embalming if required. The funeral service is conducted as usual, after which the body is cremated. This type of cremation costs more than all other types.
2. Cremation+ A Memorial Service
In this type of service, the cremated remains are not kept at the venue and people gather and pay their respects to the departed soul without any body or ashes present.
3. Direct Cremation (without a ceremony)
This type of cremation doesn’t involve any ceremonial services. The body is not embalmed and there is no visitation or viewing because the body is cremated right after the person’s demise. This becomes the most affordable cremation option.
4. Cremation With The Body Donated To Science
Some people donate their entire bodies to organizations that conduct scientific research. In this case, the organization handles the cremation and pays for it since this is the only suitable disposition method after all the tests and experiments conducted on the body.
If you are considering preplanning your service and opting for cremation, this information will help you decide which option works best for you. At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we offer start-to-end cremation services and can help you with all aspects of this process.
