Choosing Cremation - The Benefits
Choosing cremation can provide many more benefits when it comes to the final placement and memorialisation of the cremated remains. Gone are the days when ashes are just routinely scattered in the crematorium gardens. Today there are many, very popular alternatives that extend a multitude of benefits in having a lasting and meaningful memorial to your loved one. Many people do not realise that there are little regulatory restrictions when it comes to interring or scattering cremated remains. You have a lot more freedom of choice than you may be aware and this section will highlight some of those options.
Having the actual service at a crematorium can also provide many benefits in comparison to a service at a cemetery. Most crematoria are modern, spacious, warm and accommodating. They all have integrated sound systems for your music choices to be played, an Organ and, more recent developments, extending video and internet services, allowing family and friends around the world to view the service in real time. A cremation service can also afford a more comfortable, relaxed and informal gathering in respect of the atmosphere of the venue. The service chapels are usually non-denominational, beautifully decorated and tend not to reflect a sombre appearance.
