Staying farewell in style

My grandmother was a really stylish old woman. Even when she was sick and when she got frail, she'd still always look perfect and she'd never go anywhere without her lipstick looking immaculate! It was hard to say goodbye to her because she was such a spunky old lady. I knew that she would want her funeral to be a reflection of her style and personality. The funeral did an awesome job and made sure every detail was perfect. It's never great to say goodbye to someone that you love that much, but knowing she'd approve of the funeral did make the day go a little easier.

Three Important Parts Of Your Crematorium Funeral Arrangements

Cremations are growing in popularity across the world, as many people enjoy the more personalised result that allows you to keep the remains in your house or scatter them in a place of great significance to your departed loved one. However, when planning a cremation, you do not just have to plan the burning of the body, but the funeral that goes along with it. Many people don't realise that a cremation is almost the same as a regular burial, and it is only after the funeral is complete that there is any difference. Here are three important aspects of your funeral arrangements you need to get sorted for a cremation. 

Crematorium Funeral Directors

A crematorium is the place where most funerals will be held, and they carry their own expert funeral directors that you need to contact and plan the day with. Crematorium funeral directors can help organise any religious ceremonies, as well as just the overall structure of the funeral so that everything goes smoothly. Make sure that when first contacting funeral directors who specify crematorium funeral directors so that you don't accidentally end up planning a funeral for a burial, as this is a distinction between these two services. 

Urn

Of course, the most important choice you will probably make after the cremation has occurred is what type of receptacle to keep the remains in. For those who are looking to scatter the ashes, a simple but well-made urn is appropriate, and many people choose to keep the urn after they scatter the ashes anyway. If you are looking to display the urn in a public place, then it can be a good idea to go for something a little more ornate and decorative. Always remember, reserved and muted colours are key when it comes to an urn, and designs should be simple and respectful, never flashy or gaudy. 

Space For Your Funeral

If you do not want to host the funeral in the space provided at the crematorium, then you will need to organise with the crematorium funeral directors exactly where you want the ceremony to occur. Whether a church or a private property, most people still want a service even if they find it too painful to do it at the actual spot where the body will be cremated. You can even organise the funeral to occur after the body has been cremated so that it is there in the urn, and many people use the funeral to scatter the ashes at so everyone can see.
