If you’ve thought about having a cremation funeral instead of a full, traditional service with a burial, you aren’t alone. Cremations have become far more popular across North America over the past two decades. This is primarily because of their lower expense compared to traditional funeral services. However, if you’re a resident that’s leaning toward Tolleson, AZ cremations, you may be unsure about which provider you should contact to learn more about the process, and, potentially, get arrangements underway.
There are three different kinds of cremation services available to consumers. The type of provider that you contact should reflect your goals for a funeral service. For example, if you’ve decided that your highest priority is to save money, you probably have a direct cremation in mind, where the body is cremated shortly after death, and before any memorial service has taken place.
If your plan is to have a direct cremation, two options stand out. The first is an online arrangement service. These services are staffed with licensed funeral directors and cost the least amount of money to use. However, they come with two drawbacks. The first is that they aren’t available in all localities. The second is that they aren’t as personal as the other kinds of cremation providers, so the help and level of attention you receive might not be to your satisfaction.
If you’re looking for a direct cremation, it might be better instead for you to contact a cremation society, which is a group that specializes in cremations and can walk you through the process without any distractions, and on a personal basis.
On the other hand, you may wish to have a traditional funeral service and have a cremation afterward. In that case, the best provider for you may be a traditional funeral home. Most funeral homes also operate crematories, and if you desire to have aspects of a traditional funeral service beforehand, such as a wake and eulogy, you would be able to take care of all arrangements with one provider, which would be a lot more efficient than going to one provider for the funeral service and then a separate crematory for the cremation. You’ll also receive a lot of personal attention.
No matter which provider you choose, price should never be the sole criterion upon which you make your decision. You should always inspect the premises and reputation of whatever provider you’re thinking about doing business with.
