What is a Direct Cremation?
A direct cremation is a type of cremation service where the body of the deceased is cremated without a funeral service. It is a straightforward type of way to be cremated without ceremony and allows family members to commemorate the loved one in their own time and way.
The body is cremated shortly after death, and there is no visitation or ceremony prior to the cremation. The cremated remains are then returned to the family, who may choose to hold a memorial service or scatter the ashes at a later time.
Direct cremation is generally less expensive than a traditional cremation with a service because it eliminates the costs associated with a funeral ceremony and visitation.
When you choose direct cremation, our team at Kenna and Turner will handle all the necessary arrangements, and the deceased person will rest in our funeral home until the cremation date.
Our funeral director will instruct you on the time and date of the cremation and return the ashes to you to keep or scatter in a suitable place.
