Choosing a cremation provider can be quite a big decision. Before you commit to a specific provider, it’s important that you ask the right kind of questions, to ensure that the dear departed soul will be cared for well and you’ll get good value within your budget. Most families aren’t aware that there are different options when they are choosing cremation.

It’s common for people to forget important details such as memorials, visitations, keepsakes as well as urns etc. This can give rise to regrets, especially at a time when they are dealing with their grief. Here are some questions to ask when choosing a cremation provider. It will help ensure you get one that suits your requirements:

  • Ask which services are included, because all cremation providers offer different solutions.
  • It also very important that you check what each of these services costs, and what’s included in that specific price range.
  • Ask them to provide you a list of their price list, so you know exactly what you’re paying for.
  • Check whether they have a specific remembrance center where you and your family members can browse customization items, caskets, keepsakes and urns for sale.
  • It’s important that you ask whether they have an onsite crematory. This is primarily because most funeral homes liaise with third-party providers and will transfer your loved one into their care temporarily. If this is the case, it's necessary that you get details of that third-party provider.
  • Ask them whether you can do a quick tour of the facility to ensure that it’s clean and well maintained.
  • Ask them to provide testimonials for referrals, as this will give you a better idea of what the quality of services
