Remembrances with final goodbye of a traditional funeral service followed by cremation.
Another option available is for those that would like to have the best of both worlds when it comes to a traditional funeral service vs. cremation. You may have a viewing of your loved one's body in a rental casket, hold a Remembrance funeral service and then have their body cremated. In this case, if the ashes will be interred in a cemetery, burial would be held on a different day to allow for the cremation to take place in a timely manner after the funeral service. We would be happy to explain the several options available when it comes to combining a traditional funeral service with cremation as final disposition.
