Traditional Funeral Options With Cremation

The term “Traditional Funeral Service”, when referring to a cremation, mean those services in which the body will be present, just as though there was to be a casket burial. There are many different variations; the deceased may be present in a ceremonial casket for a visitation and a funeral service, followed by the cremation. If the urn is to be buried a graveside service may be scheduled at a later date.
