It may be difficult for a family to choose between cremation and interment, especially if their loved one never made his or her preference clear. If this is the case, the compassionate and experienced funeral professionals of Spear Miller Funeral Home would be honored to assist them in making this vital decision by providing needed information, guidance, and support. For people who know that they want to be cremated after they pass, the funeral directors here encourage them to write a funeral pre plan form now and give a copy of it to someone they trust. If they do not officially indicate this desire, their cremation is dependent on the signed approval of their spouse. If they have no living husband or wife, all their offspring must agree to the cremation process. If they have no children, their next of kin has the final say.

Those who choose cremation for a loved one or for themselves may receive the healing benefits of a traditional funeral service. A viewing or closed casket visitation can be planned to occur prior to the funeral. The only difference between traditional services before cremation and those before burial is that a rental or cremation casket it used. The funeral directors of Spear Miller Funeral Home have a fine selection of such caskets available and it would be their privilege to help a family select one that is appropriate in appearance and cost.

A direct cremation is the most cost-effective type of cremation. In a direct cremation, the body is cremated directly after death after the family signs a cremation authorization form. A family typically must wait twenty-four hours for the cremation to be performed. No traditional funeral and pre-funeral events like a wake are arranged, because of this, families typically do not need to engage the service of a funeral home. They do not need to purchase a casket, because bodies are cremated in simple containers, and they do not need to spend money on embalming. Finally, they do not need to purchase a burial site. In many cities, a direct cremation can be performed for under one thousand dollars, and prices do vary. After the cremation families can hold a memorial service. In most cases, the staff of the crematory will handle all the aspects associated with a cremation. The funeral home will complete the death certificate and transport the body to the crematory. Even if families opt to hold a funeral service and engage a funeral home prior to cremation, in many cases, funeral homes offer rental caskets for the service. Bereaved families can save thousands of dollars by choosing cremation.

In addition, there is the option of hosting a memorial gathering in honor of the departed taking place at some time after the cremation has been conducted. It is common for such events to be scheduled on the one-year anniversary of the person’s death. A memorial service can be held in any location, giving families the flexibility to choose a setting that was special to the deceased.
