4 Types Of Cremation: Understanding The Differences

After a person's death, the physical remains can be cremated or buried, and most people choose the conventional route of burial. Cremation is prevalent in a wide variety of civilizations worldwide and it is gaining popularity in Canada. Arbutus Funeral Service receives several inquiries from clients regarding cremation.

Cremations of Various Types

Given that there are four distinct methods of cremation, the following knowledge will enable you to understand their differences:

  • Cremation with a standard service combines cremation with a typical funeral ceremony that includes a casket and embalming. Due to this fact, it is also the most expensive kind of cremation.
  • Cremation with a memorial ceremony is conducting a service following cremation and leaving no mortal remains at the location. Rather than that, an urn containing the individual's ashes is retained, and friends and relatives can say their goodbyes.
  • Without a service or immediate cremation, there is no embalming and no visitation or funeral service. The mortal remnants are burned shortly after the individual dies, making it a less expensive way of disposition.
  • Cremation with a body donation to science occurs when individuals have mentioned their wishes to this effect in a written form. In this scenario, the institution takes care of all the legalities and pays for cremation. The family is not required to make any payment.

There are notable distinctions between the four forms of cremation, and the cost will vary depending on which one you choose. If you are contemplating preplanning this element, this information can assist you in determining the best course of action. You can discuss these options with your family if you are preplanning, as it will help you make the right choice.
