The Difference Between Funeral Homes and Cremation Services Explained by Heritage Cremation Providers

The Difference between Funeral Homes and Cremation Services Explained by Heritage Cremation Providers When a loved one passes away, Heritage Cremation Provider understands that the choice between a funeral home and a cremation service can be overwhelming and confusing. There are many different aspects between a traditional service at a funeral home, and a cremation. Below, you will learn from Heritage Cremation Provider what the basic distinctions are between the service you receive from a funeral home and the options available when you choose cremation.

Funeral Homes

Funeral homes have different procedures and costs than cremation services do; they are more involved and usually have separate pricing for the many different articles needed. The duties performed by directors of funeral homes include many detailed instructions, but the funeral itself is customarily a viewing of the departed by family and friends, with flowers surrounding your loved one in a private viewing room that funeral homes offer. People may stand and offer their thoughts and memories and perhaps a member of the clergy will say a prayer. After the viewing, guests leaving the funeral homes may either gather at a place of worship for a mass, or go directly to a cemetery for a burial service, after which there is usually a breakfast or lunch served.

Cremation Services

Cremation services can happen with or without complete funeral services or funeral homes. Most cremations occur without viewings of the departed in funeral homes, but rather a family will hold a memorial service after the cremation process is over. Heritage Cremation Provider offers many different types of memorial services for all faiths and cultures, so you can honor your loved one in the manner you desire. A popular choice for a memorial service after cremation is having family and friends gather in a viewing room that many funeral homes will rent by the hour. You can tailor the memorial to suit your wishes, or those desired by the departed. Some families choose to celebrate the life of their loved one by having favorite pictures and mementos placed on memorial tables. If the departed played a musical instrument it can be strategically placed in the room and favorite music can play during the service, or even a live musician can play. Some families choose to have the ashes of their loved one scattered at sea or another favorite outdoor location. The possibilities are as unique as the life that departed.

Heritage Cremation Provider wants to assist you in this time of need by removing some of the stress you are feeling- we will make all of the arrangements for you. It does not matter where you want memorial services, what you may want to have at them, or even if you want to have a choice of viewing rooms from funeral homes, we will make all of the necessary preparations.

Funeral Homes and Services

Funeral Homes require the embalming process to take place before a viewing. This is a necessary preservation for the departed before they can be brought into a viewing room. The funeral director or Heritage Cremation Provider can also arrange for cremation services, which can take place after the funeral service is complete, or before a memorial service at independent cremation pricing or complete cremation costs .

You can rest assured that you will have a dignified service that flatters your loved one and your budget. Cremation pricing generally includes, transporting the departed to a crematory and returning to the place of the families’ choice, obtaining all necessary paperwork, the container for the cremation process, plus a rigid container for the return of the remains. Some cremation services like those from Heritage Cremation Provider, also include serving the departed’s family from the beginning of the cremation process through a memorial service or scattering of the ashes, assistance with filing paperwork for SSI, insurance companies and Veterans benefits, planning memorial services and grief support. Free, accurate information about the entire cremation process and cremation costs can be found on the Heritage Cremation Provider website.

Cremation Costs and Cremation Pricing

Cremation pricing is less expensive than traditional funeral services held in funeral homes even when they include a memorial service after the cremation process. The reasons for cremation costs being lower than funeral services are the many expenses that go into conventional services from funeral homes. Direct cremation pricing does not require the expense of embalming, a casket, casket liner, cemetery plot, vault, maker for the grave, dressing of the departed and any extra transportation necessary that increase the price of funeral services. Cremation costs are not the only reason many families are choosing cremation services from Heritage Cremation Providers. Many families live a great distance from each other and cannot attend funeral services, others do not want to prolong the sadness associated with a tradition burial, and some simply do not want to be buried. Whatever the reason for the choice of cremation services, Heritage Cremation Provider gives everyone honorable cremation options at simplified cremation pricing.
