Planning a Cremation
Cremation has become the popular choice for families and, in the current climate, a number of religious groups have also changed their outlook regarding this type of funeral.
You can choose from quite a few options when it comes to cremation—from a disposition funeral through to a full funeral service.
Cremation Choices Include:
- Disposition funeral–where the family elect to have no funeral service.
- Memorial service—where the deceased has previously been cremated with no funeral service, a memorial service can be held on a date afterwards, arranged and conducted by the family at their chosen place or venue. A Gentle Touch Funerals can also tailor a memorable service in our chapel to suit the family needs. This is a cost-effective way of providing closure for family and friends.
- Traditional funeral service, followed by cremation. This is the most popular option with memorable services being held at venues ranging from the crematorium chapel, a church, or at our pleasantly relaxing chapel. In a church setting, family and friends stay to share memories after we depart for the crematorium. At our chapel, the deceased would be delivered to the crematorium when family and friends depart. With a crematorium chapel, the cremation would take place sometime after the congregation has departed.
Whichever method is chosen, either in our arrangement rooms or in the comfort of your own home, our thoughtful staff can guide you every step of the way through the process.
