The Funeral Service and Cremation
Cremation is another means of final disposition. Cremation can follow the visitation and funeral service at which the casket is present. After the funeral service, instead of going to the cemetery, the casket goes to the crematory. After cremation, if desired, a public or private inurnment of the cremated remains can take place at the convenience of the family.
The Memorial Service and Cremation
A memorial service, without the casket present can be held after the cremation takes place. The cremated remains may or may not be present for the memorial service. The service can be held at the funeral home, or at a church or other location. After the service, the urn may be taken to a cemetery for burial or be returned to the family
This means there is no type of service. After Cremation the remains are returned to the family.
