Types of Funerals & Funeral Trends

 

Types of Funerals Urn

Funerals are primarily broken up into two categories: traditional funerals with a casket and burial or entombment following services, or cremation, which may occur before or after services are held. 

This will easily guide you through the different services offered whether you are planning for your deceased love one, or funeral pre-planning for yourself. Within these two categories, several options exist. 

A summary of our most popular packages are as follows:

A-1 Traditional Funeral Service

A service of this type would involve a full casket with the body present for services, followed by a burial in a cemetery or entombment in a mausoleum.  These services can be held all in one day, or with a visitation the day before the funeral service. 

A Traditional Funeral Service, Followed by Cremation

A service of this type is very similar to the A-1 traditional service, except that cremation would follow the service instead of burial or entombment.  This service would utilize one of our cremation rental caskets, which feature removable, fully finished, liners that look just as a burial casket would, or our wide selection of cremation caskets.

Direct Cremation with a Memorial Service

In this package, cremation would occur before formal services are held, and the urn would be present for services following cremation.  Of course, the family may arrange for a private viewing of their loved one prior to the cremation.  The urn will then be given to the family or placed in a final resting place of their choosing.  Urns may be buried or entombed, just as a casket would be. 

Direct Cremation with No Formal Services

In this instance, the body would be cremated and returned to the family.  No formal services would be held, although a private viewing for the family may occur before cremation.  Again, urns may be buried, entombed, or returned to the family.

Funeral Service Trends

The needs and expectations of our families are changing and we've responded with funeral service options tailored to these new expectations.

Two generations ago, traditional funerals (visitation, funeral service and service at the cemetery) were common. It was what everyone expected.

But, as the demand for cremation services increased, there has been a shift in the types of services available. Many more families are choosing cremation and holding a memorial service afterwards. Family members and friends still came together to pay their respects to the deceased and find emotional support but they did so in less formal ways.

Today, another funeral service option, the celebration of life service, has become quite popular because there are no limits to the how, where, and when the life of a loved one can be celebrated. 

Thinking about Your Funeral Service Options

The arrangements you make will be influenced by the lifestyle of your deceased family member; the time of year, your budget, and the number of people in attendance.
