There are several options within the funeral; you can scatter the remains or keep them in an urn. Most people scatter the remains in an ocean, a scattering garden, and sometimes unique places that hold meaning to the deceased. However, it would be best if you were careful because not all sites allow the scattering of ashes.

If you choose an urn, you can place the urn somewhere meaningful or chapel, and it's possible even to have the urn buried in a small graveside space. Most people put it in an urn mausoleum and sometimes place it in a spot in the house, where they can see it well.

Cremation services cost less than others, especially when it's pre-planned. Viewings and memorial services can also be done in a cremation funeral.

You can have the deceased's body placed in an open casket for the funeral services and viewing. Then have the body be cremated after, and placed in an urn whenever you wish. 

The urn can be placed during the memorial, which is to celebrate the life of the deceased. Having the ashes in an urn can be suitable for people because they can put it in their house and feel comfortable having them close.

There is also immediate cremation, where the deceased's body is cremated a few days after death, and no service is held. This involves no viewing, and sometimes no memorial, and the ashes are returned to the family in an urn.

Some religions and cultures follow this traditional way of the funeral and have their loved ones cremated and often scattered in an ocean.

No matter the type of funeral service, it's advised that people attend the viewing to accept the loved one's loss and pass the grief. These services can be provided and adjusted well when you pre-plan them. All funeral service providers do these services, and you can ask them for more information and how you would like the funeral service to go. 

Time is crucial, and things need to be decided in these situations, but when people are struck with grief and confusion, making those decisions can be challenging. So, some people pre-plan their funerals and discuss with their family what their wishes are so that the time can pass with both the deceased and the family's wishes. Funerals can be challenging, but the best thing you can do is do it according to their wishes, and we provide you with that, tell us how you would want it, and we will do it.
