If You Prefer to Cremate | Choosing a Local Crematorium

 

if you prefer to cremate and choosing a local crematorium blue flowerCremation has been a part of the human experience for a very long time, and is the preferred method of caring for a loved one in many parts of the world.

While we could recite statistics on the rising popularity of cremation in North America and other nations, they really won’t mean very much to you. After all, who chooses to cremate just because everyone else is doing so?

People in Indiana choose to cremate because they believe it to be the right choice for them. It’s as deeply personal of a decision as that of selecting burial. The decision could be based on:

  • Financial Challenges. The cost of direct cremation with no funeral or memorial service is often ¼ that of a traditional burial. This simple fact is often all it takes for a family to make the decision to cremate; however we firmly believe that there is great value in bringing family and friends together for a remembrance service – value which exceeds mere cost.
     
  • The Desire for Simplicity. There is nothing simpler than a direct cremation, where the body is transferred straight to the local crematorium and everything is done within hours of completing the necessary paperwork.
     
  • The Need for Flexibility. A memorial service after a direct cremation can be arranged at a time that's convenient for family members. There is no rush to put together a ceremony which many in the circle can’t attend due to time or financial constraints.
     
  • The Intention to More Fully Commemorate a Loved One. A memorial service can be planned for weeks, even months, after the cremation. This means more people can get involved and there’s plenty of time to gather meaningful scriptural passages, poetry, literary quotes, music, photos, and videos.

If any of those reasons ring true for you and your family, then the decision to cremate may be the perfect alternative for your loved one.
 

Decisions You Must Make When Choosing to Cremate at a Local Crematorium

  • Who will perform the cremation?
  • Should you purchase a cremation urn?
  • What kind of remembrance ceremony would you like to have?
  • What will you do with the cremated remains?

You may wish to keep the cremated remains at your home for a time, until you feel ready to let go of them, or when all family members can be present for a ceremony involving scattering the ashes.

Our professional Funeral Directors can advise you on unique ways to memorialize a loved one using the cremated remains, including the creation of art glass objects. We also offer a wide selection of cremation keepsake jewelry.

We can also recommend firms within Indiana that specialize in scattering the cremated remains at sea, or in the air.

Call us today to explore cremation options, and the many creative ways you can memorialize a loved one either before, or after, the cremation has occurred.
