This brochure looks at some of the issues and options involving cremation as a process for disposition of a human body.
"Making the personal choice to cremate involves many decisions. Consult with your funeral director regarding the legal documents necessary for cremation and the pre-planning services available. It is wise to consider all the options and ask questions before making final decisions about such an important event."
As with traditional earth burial, the type of cremation service is subject to the personal choices of the family. Such services might include visitation, public or private funeral service with the casketed body present, or a memorial service which may be held prior to or following the cremation process.
