Pre-Planning for Cremation

Funeral Planning San Mateo

Many people choose cremation because it offers flexible options for memorialization and funeral services. If you intend to pre-plan a funeral, you can visit a funeral home to explore your options. One option is a traditional cremation with a ceremony. You could arrange to have visitation before the cremation. Or, you might request that the visitation be held after the act of cremation. Some individuals prefer to choose minimal funeral services. Non-ceremonial cremation is available, which eliminates the visitation and service altogether.

In addition to evaluating your cremation ceremony options, consider how you would like your surviving family members to handle the cremains. It is still possible to have a burial at a cemetery even if you choose cremation. Or, you might prefer that your ashes be scattered at a location that is meaningful to you. The funeral home representative can help you research any applicable legal limitations to scattering ashes in public places.
