The term "traditional service" is often used to describe funeral services of various types that do not involve cremation. Many people in our area still prefer some type of traditional service or disposition.
A service, religious or non-religious in nature, is often held at the funeral home or church. Prior to services, there is usually a visitation period where the family can gather and receive friends. The casket can be opened or closed, depending on the wishes of the deceased and the family. Following the service, there is usually a procession to the cemetery where burial or entombment take place.
Another option is a "graveside service". This is a simple burial service held at the cemetery without a visitation period preceding it. The services will be held at the site of the burial. These services typically consist of scripture readings, a eulogy, poetry and music.
As the request for cremation services increase, your options also increase. Cremation services are as unique and personal as the person you are honoring.
A memorial service is held when the family does not desire to have a traditional service. When this option is selected, the casketed remains are not present. If you choose, the cremated remains may be present in the memorial urn of your choice, which can be personalized if desired.
