Whether want an affordable disposition option without all the added services and products related to funeral costs or you prefer the simplicity that cremation offers, you may opt for direct cremation.

Find out more information about how you can benefit from our direct cremation services here below.

 

Defining Direct Cremation

Essentially, direct cremation disposition is where the deceased is immediately taken to the crematory after death, and the ashes are then returned to the remaining family members, without any visitation or ceremony. It is a fast and efficient disposition process that has several key benefits for the family. Here are a few reasons why you should consider direct cremation:

 

Affordable

One of the main advantages of direct cremation disposition is that it is very affordable as it does not include any added services and products. For example, there is no need for a memorial or funeral service at the chosen funeral home, which means that you can skip most of the expenses usually associated with full service or conventional funerals. It allows families to save money during the funeral process so that they can use it elsewhere to help the family of the deceased person.

 

Environmentally Conscious

Direct cremation usually takes place within a few days after death, which means that preservation of the body is not necessary. Through foregoing the embalming process, you help to reduce the impact of harmful chemicals like methanol and formaldehyde from polluting the earth. Thus, if you want to help protect the environment, you should definitely consider direct cremation without all the added services and products. Furthermore, with direct cremation you do not even have to use land resources through a cemetery plot or buying a vault or casket, which saves extra resources.

 

Save Space

Once the body has undergone the direct cremation process, the ashes are placed in a small vessel, and this allows numerous options for either long term storage or any other creative methods of spreading the ashes. Through eliminating the usage of burial plots, added services and products, direct cremation helps to save land space that can be used for other activities later on.

 

Summary of Direct Cremation Disposition

The body is taken directly to the crematory or funeral home and held for long enough so as to secure a cremation permit and death certificate. The family is also required to authorise the direct cremation disposition.
No visitation, funeral services or any added services and products are required with direct cremation.
No need for purchasing a casket, but you can buy an urn or alternative container for holding the ashes, which saves the cost of buying a costly casket.
