What is Direct Cremation?
Direct cremation is cremation without ceremony and funeral services. After passing away, the body is taken directly to a crematory for the cremation process – there are no attendees, embalming, viewing, or visitation.
This can save families thousands of dollars as well as make the cremation process faster for families in case they need death certificates for estate matters.
Advantages Of Direct Cremation
Direct cremation offers a few advantages.
Firstly, it’s the cheapest alternative to traditional cremation and burial. The cost is cut down because it does not include a memorial service.
Secondly, direct cremation process is very fast, with the actual cremation only taking between one to three hours and the whole process can be done days earlier than other options.
Another advantage is that, once the cremation is completed, the family can still have their own service. However, it saves a considerable amount of time and money.
Direct Cremation – The Cheapest Way To Be Cremated
Regarding regular cremation, the body is transported from the hospital or hospice to a funeral home. The funeral home then performs normal funeral body preparations like embalming, dressing, and body preparations for cremation viewings. This can cost upwards of $7000.
The cost of cremation is higher due to the following payments:
- Expensive Casket (The family can choose a simple and plain casket, which is more affordable.)
- Funeral Home Charges
- Cosmetic and Dressing
- Funeral Chapel or Church
Also, the environmental concerns of embalming have also made cremation and traditional burial less popular.
