When you choose cremation services in Coral Gables, FL for a loved one or for yourself as part of pre-arrangements, there might be many reasons you have gone that route over traditional burial. While everyone has their reasons, many people appreciate that cremation is a highly versatile disposition method. That’s often reason enough for many to choose it. Here are some ways in which cremation is versatile:
While you may know that cremation is much cheaper than traditional burial, there are also variables within cremation. There aren’t nearly as many products and services that are necessary to the process so that automatically makes it cheaper than regular burials. However, you can add as many things as you’d like, which can increase the cost. A basic direct cremation in which you utilize the simple container your funeral home provides costs very little. But the cost can rise if you choose a customized urn, you want a memorial service, or there are other things to add to the process. The versatile cost means you can afford what you want and need on any budget.
With traditional burial, the services are generally visitations, funerals, and then burial ceremonies. With cremation, the services can be whatever you want them to be. If you don’t cremate right away, you can still have a visitation and funeral before cremation takes place. If you go with direct cremation, you can have a memorial, celebration of life, ash scattering, or any other kind of service you want.
3-Resting Place Choices
Again, with traditional burial, the resting place is set. You have to have a burial in a cemetery so you have to buy a plot and headstone etc. With cremation, the resting places can vary. You can still go with burial or you can buy a spot in a columbarium for your urn. You can have a family member keep the urn or you can have family scatter the ashes over the sea, a park, or anywhere else. There are plenty of options to consider.
Many people choose cremation because of the lower costs while others like the versatile options. Whatever the reason, it’s nice to know there are choices available within the disposition.
