Arranging a cremation is much like arranging a traditional burial and funeral
service. As with burials, you need to make a number of decisions about the
type of cremation you would like performed, and these decisions will have an impact on your
planning. In Detroit, cremation services can be arranged by funeral homes.
This video examines more about the process.
One of the biggest decisions you will make is whether to have direct cremation
or to have a funeral ceremony. With direct cremation services, there is
no viewing or ceremony. The cremation is simply performed and the cremains
are returned to the family in a memorial urn. Alternatively, the funeral
home can help you plan a cremation that has all of the elements of a traditional
funeral ceremony, including a viewing and memorial service, before the
cremation is performed.
