If you have any questions about cremation, we are available to meet with you and help you better understand the process and what is involved in planning for the death of a family member.
Unique Benefits of Choosing Cremation
If cost is a consideration, cremation might be the perfect option for your family, as a cremation costs only about one-tenth the cost of a typical funeral. We speak with many local families who are unable to afford the costs of an all-inclusive funeral and find that a cremation service is more accommodating to their budget. A cremation is also an excellent option for a family who has experienced an unexpected death and has not had the opportunity to save for the costs of a funeral. Additional advantages of cremation in Louisville, KY:
- Time is always a factor when planning for a traditional funeral- but not so with cremation. It’s possible to arrange a memorial service before, during, or after the cremation.
- Cremation offers more options for a final resting place. Keepsake mementos are cherished by friends and family and still leave ample ashes for scattering or placement in a cemetery.
- Permitted scattering can satisfy the personal requests of your loved one, and costs a lot less than you may think.
- There is no embalming required for a cremation service, saving further costs.
- Cremation is considered a more ‘green’ option as it requires less space to accommodate the remains.
- More and more churches are becoming accepting of cremation.
