Planning a Cremation Service

Cremation is an alternative to earth burial. Cremation is irreversable. A deceased person's body is placed in an appropriate container and then taken to a crematory. Visitation and religious services can follow if desired. Families may choose the type of container with which they are comfortable. We can help with planning a cremation service, as well as any other services.

Our Cremation Services in Eastchester NY

  Our beautiful assortment of urns.

Many families that choose cremation have the same services and religious rites as those that choose burial or entombment. Cremation as a choice does not prevent that. Studies have demonstrated that having time to say goodbye is healthy, and having a funeral is important to the survivors. Services can be as private as you would like. Others do not wish to view the deceased. They may choose visiting with a closed casket. Some prefer a memorial service without the body present. Many prefer some type of religious service: at the church, funeral home or cemetery. There are as many choices with planning a cremation service as with burial or entombment. At Westchester funeral home, we are always available to help  with Cremation Services in Eastchester NY, Westchester, Tuckahoe, Bronxville, Scarsdale, Yonkers, Bronx, White Plains, Hartsdale, Rye, Greenburgh, Ardsley, Tarrytown, Irvington, Sleepy Hollow, Dobbs Ferry, Hastings-on-Hudson, Elmsford, Purchase, Mount Vernon, and Harrison.

 

Cremation Vs Burial

You will need to decide if you want your loved one to be buried or cremated. Although, with a cremation you can also plan a burial. If you choose to have your loved one buried, you will need to decide if you want to have a viewing with the body present and if you want this viewing to be public or private. You will also need to make arrangements for a cemetery plot.

Planning A Cremation Service

If you choose to have your loved one cremated, please remember that you can still have the body present for viewing before the cremation. Many families do not know this option exists and do not get the needed closure to be on their path to healing. You will then need to decide if you would like the cremated remains scattered or kept in an urn or other keepsake.
