Funerals can be expensive, and it may be difficult for families to afford meaningful services during an already difficult time. Burials are a costly option for a loved one and are not always the best option for each family. Luckily, cremation services are a more affordable and less time-constraint option for families dealing with losing a loved one. When thinking of cremation services, many different types are offered. These include traditional, memorial, and direct cremation. The main differences between these three types are based on price, the planning aspect, and the service timeline. Choosing which is right for you can be based on the importance of those different factors. For those looking for the most affordable cremation, direct cremation is your best choice.
Direct cremation is a cremation service without a ceremony. A funeral collector will collect the body of the deceased loved one and place them into a casket, where they will be taken to a crematorium for the cremation process. Their cremated remains will then be placed into a box or urn if requested, where the family can take them home or spread them meaningfully. This is the most affordable and simple option for families because there is no ceremony or visiting session for guests and others who know the beloved deceased family member. This direct cremation service simply involves cremated remains from the funeral director given to the family.
Many people choose direct cremation because it is affordable and easy during an already challenging time. Some people do not want to be buried as a final wish, or maybe family members do not want to have an open casket or viewing session for their loved ones. Direct cremation is easy, fast, and affordable for families with recent losses. There is no need to pay for a funeral service, other funeral merchandise, or host receptions for guests after a viewing. A direct cremation is a popular option for families who want to honor their loved one's life without hurting their wallet during a difficult time.
