Direct Cremation with a Funeral Home

April 30, 2018 • Teri Vila-Caballero

When you think about cremation, you may not realize that there are a lot of different things that lie under that term’s umbrella. Death isn’t something pleasant to think about, but when you lose a loved one, you are going to have to jump into the details. If you want to go with cremation, you then have to figure out what the funeral home in Miami, FL that you are going to use offers—and what you want to go with among the options.

Cremation Basics

Cremation is a type of disposition method where the deceased is cremated after their death, but that can take place in a number of different manners and at a number of different times. Direct cremation, for example, happens very soon after the person passes on and is done before a funeral or memorial service. It has a lot of benefits to it, including costs. But regular cremation can take place later, after a visitation or funeral. So there are options as to when the cremation itself takes place. When you look at the basics, and then get into the specifics, there are a number of benefits with certain options that can help you decide. Your funeral home can help go over the options as well, but this can get you started on the decisions you have to make.

Direct Cremation Saves Money

If you don’t have a lot of funding for the funeral, direct cremation is the cheapest method. You don’t have to worry about a casket, embalming, or any of the other items that go along with waiting for later to cremate. But direct cremation doesn’t mean you can’t have funeral services, memorials, or anything else you want. It basically precludes a visitation or viewing, but that’s all it leaves out of the services.

Cremation Allows Time for Services

Cremation, whether direct or not, allows you time to get things set up. You want the best for your loved one and that might mean putting a memorial off for a week or more so everyone they would want there can make it in time. You also have time to personalize the service further and do things, like go through picture books to set up a memorial table or video.
