Cremation is the body disposition of choice for many families who need to arrange final services. While there are lots of people who still arrange traditional funeral services, graveside services, and casket burials, more and more people are deciding to plan cremation services. Are you considering a cremation service in Seattle, WA for a loved one who has recently died? If so, you’ll want to find the right death care services provider to help you. But before you determine what to do, ensure you haven’t fallen for any of the following cremation myths.

Myth: A Cremation Service is Superior to a Funeral Service – or Vice-Versa 

The first thing you need to realize is that both body disposition types offer a respectable and honorable way to honor your deceased loved one. So neither is better than the other. You and your family will know which one makes the most sense to the entire family. If you do choose cremation, you can still hold some sort of ceremony if desired. It’s not uncommon, for instance, for families to hold a cremation service and to then follow it up with a memorial service.

Myth: There’s No Telling Whose Ashes Are in the Urn

Don’t believe the myth that the urn you take home could contain the cremated remains of a stranger. Cremation services providers do not place more than one deceased person’s body into the cremation chamber. One body at a time is cremated. So when a staff member at the funeral home presents you with an urn after the cremation, you can be sure that the ashes inside of the urn are the ashes of your dearly departed loved one. Funeral home staff will be able to answer any questions you may have. You might even wish to take a tour of the facility to see for yourself that the notion about possibly getting a stranger’s ashes is blatantly bogus.

Myth: The Only Reason People Plan Cremations is That They’re Cheaper Than Burials 

One reason many people plan cremations is that cremations are cheaper than funerals with burials. But the lower expense is not the only reason cremation is so common. There are lots of reasons people choose to plan cremations. For instance, some people like to scatter the ashes of their deceased relatives, to bury the urn, or to do other things.
