One decision that must be made for every person is whether to be cremated or buried after death. Most people make that decision during life and let their loved ones know of their wishes, but that is not always the case. If you are contemplating your final arrangements, or you are in charge of facilitating the final arrangements of a deceased loved one, direct cremation services in Murfreesboro TN may be a good option. Some of the benefits of direct cremation include:
A big reason why direct cremation has become increasingly popular is due to the fact that it is cost-effective. Direct cremation services are very affordable compared to other final arrangement options. With direct cremation, there is no need for embalming, make-up/hairdressing, or an expensive casket. Eliminating these costs can make end-of-life matters much more affordable.
Learning of a loved one’s passing is typically devastating for family and friends. Planning a full funeral service can be difficult when one is grieving and upset. Direct cremation is a process that makes the process of making arrangements for the deceased body faster and easier.
In most cases, direct cremation is completed in a matter of a couple of days. After a person dies, the body will be picked up and transported to the selected crematorium. The body will be cremated as soon as possible. Many families find that direct cremation makes it easier to deal with everything that comes after the death of a loved one.
Planning a funeral can be extremely stressful, especially when the death of a loved one is completely unexpected. When a recently deceased loved one is directly cremated, there is no need to deal with immediate decisions, such as making funeral programs, opting for a service schedule, or hosting a viewing.
Greater Flexibility for a Memorial Service
Death is unpredictable and often unexpected. It can be very hard to plan a service that the deceased’s family and friends can attend within several days. This is especially true when family and friends are spread out around the country.
Direct cremation provides great flexibility for planning a memorial service. The body will be cremated, and the cremains will be returned to the loved one in charge of the deceased’s final arrangements. A memorial service can be planned for a later date when everyone can attend, and the cremains/urn can be present at the memorial service.
