Some traditions mean full-body burial, while others have cremation as their new tradition. Awakenings or visits, funerals or monuments, and services are all optional, regardless of tradition. There are other options for cremation.
A visit similar to the Wake provides only the general public or the chosen person closest to the deceased with the opportunity to see the deceased and say goodbye. The family chooses clothing, jewelry and caskets, and the business prepares the deceased simply by characterizing or completely preserving. Today, this rally is usually held at a funeral hall, but previously it was held at a family home.
This is an option that is still available today. Those assembled may wish to place keepsakes, flowers, or other symbolic items in the casket for the cremation process (some items cannot be cremated, ask the funeral director about significant items first). Any items that cannot be cremated, or that the family does not wish to have cremated, will be returned to the family. A Funeral Service typically includes the body of the deceased laid out by the funeral home in clothing and a casket selected by the family. The service may be open to the public or held privately with an open or closed casket based on the family`s preference. Those assembled may wish to place keepsakes, flowers, or other symbolic items in the casket for the cremation process (some items cannot be cremated, ask the funeral director about significant items first). Officials, such as religious leaders and clergy, provide service in honor of the deceased for the gathered people. This rally may take place at a funeral hall or place of worship.
Whether the family accompanies the body with clothing, jewelry, other souvenirs, and the casket for cremation, or returns the item to the family (or, if the casket is rented, to the funeral home) Can be determined).
Witnessed cremations are offered by many crematoriums, and when a corpse enters the crematorium, the few people closest to the dead can be with the corpse. This allows for the final farewell, the addition of souvenirs, and the peace of mind of watching a loved one go through the cremation process. (Some items cannot be cremated; ask the funeral director about significant items first). Witnesses may stay for the cremation or leave to return when the cremated remains have been processed and placed in the urn. A witnessed cremation must be specifically requested and scheduled with the funeral director or crematory in advance.
A Memorial Service does not have a full body present but may instead just have the cremated remains in the urn or meaningful memorabilia selected by the family and arranged by the funeral home. The service may be open to the public or held privately based on the family`s preference. An officiant, such as a religious leader or celebrant, will provide a service honoring the deceased for those assembled. This gathering may take place at a funeral home, a place of worship, a cemetery, or any location meaningful to the family. A family may choose any or all of these services, and, in the case of the memorial and graveside services, they can be held at any time when the family can gather and is ready to grieve together and say goodbye. Cremation expands the timeframe to allow for decisionmaking and the funeral director is a useful resource at any time to plan a service.
Use of a service officiant provides a great opportunity for personalization. For many, that role is played by religious leaders, but the increasingly secularized world has been certified to be able to hire congregation leaders or provide as unique a ministry as life. You can choose from growing organizations of celebrities. This can include anything from prayers and hymns to storytelling and classic rock.
Notes on religion and cremation. Some religions, such as orthodox Buddhist and Hindu beliefs, include the cremation of the deceased in memorial ceremonies. Others, such as the Orthodox Jewish and Islamic beliefs, see this practice as a sacrificial disgrace to the deceased. Although Christian denominations are different, the Catholic acceptance of the 1963 cremation and the reconfirmation of 2016 changed the perception of cremation by many. Our choices about how we treat the dead are very personal. CANA encourages you to educate yourself about cremation, talk to your loved ones about it, explore options with the funeral leader, and seek advice from religious leaders in making decisions. Cremation offers as unique creativity and monumental opportunities as life. Nirvana\’s only recommendation is to do nothing. Urns can be removed from niches or disinterred from plots to make keepsakes. Remains that were scattered remotely can be memorialized at the cemetery or other location for future visits.
