The Steps of Arranging a Cremation

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.
