After the loss of a loved one, you may find yourself shouldering responsibility for planning a direct cremation. Your first order of business should be to find a crematorium or a funeral home to perform the direct cremation. You’ll find that everything goes more smoothly when you’re working with the right service provider. And once you learn about some of the main benefits of a Columbus, OH direct cremation, you’ll know you made the right choice for your loved one.

Here’s a look at some of the reasons why a direct cremation is the right body disposition option.


The most cost-effective body disposition option is direct cremation. There are many reasons for this. For one, there is no funeral service. As well, there are no pre-funeral events such as wakes, viewing, or visitations. This will mean you won’t have to take on additional expenses for body preparations of any sort. In fact, whatever the person was wearing up to the point of death is typically what they will be cremated in. Another way that you’ll save by going with direct cremation is by using an urn or an even less expensive alternative container over a costly casket. So if you’re particularly cost-sensitive and don’t wish to pay any more than is absolutely necessary, you’ll want to go with a direct cremation. You can save money without compromising the final send-off for someone you care about.


You’ll usually be under more time constraints when it comes to planning a funeral service. While dealing with the loss, you’ll have to consult with a funeral home to hammer out plans. You’ll also need to consider family members in other states or countries who will need to make travel arrangements to attend the funeral service. As well, you’ll need to book a facility with the space to accommodate a service and reception, and you’ll need to cope with the stress of having to plan a lot of things in a relatively short period of time. But it will be different with a direct cremation. You’ll have the flexibility of planning a memorial or a celebration of life event at your convenience. If you find the right crematorium, you’ll even be able to plan online – this means being able to submit documents electronically. And you’ll still be able to call the service provider if you run into any difficulties.
