Can I Rent A Casket For A Ceremony/Gathering Before Cremation?
Yes, you can rent a casket for a ceremony or before cremation. This is a common practice for many families who wish to honor the life of their loved one with a traditional ceremony/gathering but don’t want to incur the cost of purchasing a casket.
At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we recommend that clients rent a casket for a ceremony/gathering before cremation. It gives the family time to arrange for a permanent burial or memorial service at a later date if they choose.
You do not need a casket if you have chosen direct cremation. A direct cremation is an option in which the body is cremated shortly after death without a formal viewing or other funeral services. The family transports the body to the crematorium in an alternative container, where it is then cremated. There is typically no memorial service or visitation, though some families may choose to hold a private memorial service at some point.
Where Can You Get A Casket For A Ceremony/Gathering Before Cremation?
A cremation provider may have caskets available for rent, or they may be able to provide you with information on where to rent a casket. Additionally, some funeral homes may be able to provide you with a casket for a ceremony/gathering before cremation. It is best to contact your local cremation provider for more specific information.
