Detroit cremation is a popular option for many families, as the family
may still hold a viewing, wake, or any other funeral services they desire.
However, direct cremations do not involve a wake or funeral service prior
to cremation. Instead, the body is transported from the place of death
directly to a crematorium without the need to plan funeral services or
prepare the body.
Traditional cremation services include any funeral service the family wishes
to hold before the cremation. This requires preparation of the body, including
embalming and choosing cremation caskets for the funeral. While the family
can choose to cremate the casket with the body, they can also rent a casket
for the funeral and then have the body transported to the crematorium
in a different container. While half of Americans choose cremation services,
they can still decide between traditional and direct cremation. Both options
have their own benefits that might appeal to different families. However,
cremation services tend to be a more cost-effective option, so they are
a good choice for families concerned about the costs, but who still want
to hold a memorial service.
