If you have suffered the loss of a loved one and are getting ready to make funeral arrangements, you may be considering cremation as an option. Cremation can offer a wide variety of benefits, making it the right choice for a some of families. If this is something you are looking into, Brunswick Memorial Home, an East Brunswick, NJ funeral home and cremation provider can tell you everything you need to know about this option.
Not everyone realizes that there are different types of cremation services available. You can choose a full service funeral followed by cremation; a cremation with a memorial service either before or after; a direct cremation, which is just the cremation itself, or even bio cremation. Bio cremation uses water instead of heat to break the body down, and is environmentally friendlier, however bio cremation is not yet permitted in the State of New Jersey. Depending on your preferences and budget, you will want to consider each option to see which one fits your needs in the best possible manner.
Something else you need to know is that cremation services tend to be the options that may possibly be the most affordable out of all funeral arrangements. If you are working with a limited budget, this can be the best option for you and your family. Cremation tends to be less expensive than burial because cemetery and other costs are eliminated.
Choosing a cremation does not mean that you cannot have a memorial service. Many people have this misconception and that can dissuade them from considering this option. In fact, cremation can allow you to plan the kind of memorial service that you want for your loved one without having to rush, which can sometimes happen when choosing a traditional burial. Once the cremation is done, you can have the cremated remains present at the service in a beautiful display urn so that people can get the closure they need.
There are lots of ways for final disposition of the cremated remains, if that is what you want to do. Some people choose to scatter the remains, but you can also display them in your home or in a niche at a cemetery mausoleum. Yet other people choose to scatter the cremated remains at the beach or in gardens, and you can choose to have the urn buried, as well. Most cemeteries have designated locations where urns can be buried, so keep that in mind.
