When someone passes away, there are a lot of options, even if you decide to go with cremation services in Chicago, IL. Cremation services themselves are rather simple, but there are ways to complicate the process through the services you place around the process itself. If you want the services to be simple, there are advantages with going that direction. Here are a few such benefits.
The Quick Accomplishment
If you decide to go with direct cremation for a loved one, there are no services held before the cremation takes place. The cremation itself can happen within a day or two, once all of the paperwork is taken care of. There’s not much effort that goes into making the arrangements so that takes quite a load off of loved ones. It can be very hard to mourn and deal with arrangements for services at the same time. Without the pressure, the days ahead feel somewhat easier.
The Lack Of Details
With cremation services in place, the pressures to make decisions on various funeral services is relieved from those in the position to make moves. The timeline from the process is also removed. Direct cremation means that there are no services in advance. But there can still be services after, if that is what the family wants. However, there’s no timeframe for those services. There can be little to no details put together right away. Family members can do something impromptu and casual or they can put together a more formed memorial service in the future.
The Lower Cost
There are variations in cost, even within the cremation disposition method. The cremation process itself costs the same with one cremation provider no matter what. It’s the services around the cremation that can drive prices up. With direct cremation, the costs are as low as possible, which often leaves families with extra to do with what they wish for their loved one. Some might want to buy a nice urn for their loved one’s remains while others may want to donate to charity in their name. The lower costs allow families to make those decisions however they see fit.
