Cremations

Choosing Cremation

When choosing cremation, most families will normally choose the closest crematorium available to them. Most crematoriums offer you a peaceful, tranquil setting in which to hold the funeral service.

More and more people are choosing cremation for the following reasons:

  • Cremation costs are significantly less than that of burial
  • Simplicity and flexibility
  • Able to scatter ashes at multiple sites
  • Allows time for arranging memorial

Following the cremation there are a variety of memorialisation options available for the ashes of your loved one.

  • Crematorium memorials
  • Placing the ashes in a family grave
  • Memorialisation at home in a cabinet or urn
  • Scattering of the ashes in a favourite place

There is no right or wrong way to make a lasting memory.

Arranging  a Cremation

When planning a cremation there are a number of things to consider.

  • If you have decided on a cremation let your funeral director know as soon as possible so they can contact the local crematorium to arrange the cremation date.
  • As with a burial you will need to decide on where to hold the service; the funeral home chapel, a church, the crematorium chapel or a place such as a garden or farm that was meaningful to your loved one.
  • Viewing: For many a viewing is important as it provides the opportunity to say last goodbyes to a loved one. This generally takes place at the funeral home prior to the cremation.
  • Will there be a gathering of friends and family following the burial?

We understand that this is an emotional time for families. Len Russell Funerals compassionate staff are here to help you in your time of need.

People find it symbolic to release a balloon or butterflies at the funeral service. For some it symbolises releasing them from their life on earth.
