Closest Funeral Home to Tahoma National Cemetery 

Cremation Services Offer Lots of Options

Published: June 14, 2021

You may or may not know that cremation services in Tacoma, WA are becoming more and more common. It used to be the case that a lot more families planned funeral services and casket burials than cremation services after the death of loved ones. But now, cremation is the leading body disposition type. One reason is that it offers a great deal of flexibility.

Read on to see some of the options that you’ll have at your disposal if you plan a cremation service.

Different Cremation Service Packages 

If you wish to arrange a cremation, you’ll find that there are various final service packages you can choose. Depending on the funeral home you hire, you’ll have access to multiple packages. Chances are that at least one of these packages will offer you everything you want. And many funeral homes will be willing to accommodate any reasonable personalization requests. So you’ll be able to honor your deceased loved one with a great final send-off.

Memorial Service or Celebration of Life Service 

You can follow up the cremation service with a memorial service or celebration of life service that honors the memory of someone who had been a big part of your life. In these trying times when the pandemic is adversely impacting how people memorialize their dead, you might want to have a small memorial or celebration of life event in a private home. You can also possibly delay the event until the pandemic situation is brought under control.

Memorialization Options 

Have you considered some memorialization options to honor your deceased loved one after the cremation service? You can, for instance, bury their urn in a cemetery’s urn garden, bury their urn on your property, scatter their cremated remains somewhere special, get memorial jewelry that contains some of their ashes, place their urn in a columbarium niche, display their urn in a place of honor inside your home or outside on your property, combine some of their ashes with paint before creating a picture, and potentially do any more things. You’ll want to sit down with your family – and with the funeral director – to come to a decision as to what to do.

Get One Urn or Multiple Urns 

While you’ll want to buy at least one urn for your loved one’s cremated remains, what should you do if some of your loved ones want to take some of the ashes to their respective homes? You can ask the funeral director about purchasing multiple urns so that any of your loved ones who want some of the ashes can get some of the ashes.
