Cremation has become the standard choice for many families because it can be more flexible as to where and when you hold a service. You can have a Traditional Funeral Service before a cremation or a Celebration of Life at any time with or without the urn or cremation casket present. You can keep the urn, scatter the ashes or have the urn buried in a grave, at sea, or in a columbarium where we can hold a service.
Just like a funeral service, a Celebration of Life (Memorial Service) is a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks/months later, with or without an urn present (or Cremation Casket). What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories, reiterate values passed on by your loved one and for everyone to pay their respects. We can hold a Celebration of Life anywhere you choose; where you practice your religion, a final resting place (cemetery, scattering location), a favorite restaurant of your loved one, or a family members home.
An immediate burial is chosen for many reasons. Sometimes the gravity of the moment is too much, or everyone has said their goodbye's, and sometimes people just request to have no services. There are still ways to celebrate with this choice at a later date. For instance when gathering when the headstone is placed or your loved ones next birthday or even at the next family gathering.
