When the time comes to arrange a cremation for a deceased loved one, you will have choices. Some people plan a direct cremation with a Worthington, OH death care services provider.

It really all comes down to what you want. But it’s good to know that there are other options too.

Read on to find out about the cremation service options available to you when you need to plan.

Direct Cremation

When you plan a direct cremation, you will arrange only body disposition since there won’t be any other services. In other words, there won’t be a funeral service. There also won’t be any body preparations. This means there will be no hairstyling, makeup, or even a change of clothing. Whatever your loved one was wearing at the time of their passing is what they’ll be cremated in.

Witnessed Cremation

Some families want to be able to watch the cremation process. If this describes you and your loved ones, you will want to find a death care services provider that offers witnessed cremation. Watching your deceased loved one during the cremation process can bring closure. It will also be encouraging to be in the company of some of your loved ones during the witnessed cremation. Not all cremation services providers offer witnessed cremation. So, again, you’ll want to do your research to find a service provider that can accommodate you and your family.

Cremation with Private Viewing

When people plan funeral services, they sometimes arrange a viewing. You can do the same thing if you plan a cremation service. Of course, not all death care service providers offer this option. But there are certainly some that do.

Cremation with a Memorial

Some families have a direct cremation and then hold a memorial service at some point down the road. It can be a great way for people to come together to honor the memory of a special person. The thing with a memorial is that you can hold it whenever you want. You can hold it right after the cremation, a week after the cremation, a month or so after a cremation, or whenever you want. One benefit of holding a memorial a while after the cremation is that there will be enough time between the two events for people to reach a level of acceptance. This can make the memorial a more celebratory affair as people unite to honor the deceased.
