Can I Have A Cremation And A Visitation?

Published: May 24, 2022

Visitation is the opportunity for people to say last farewells to the deceased while finding peace. The grieving family and friends do not want to miss the last chance to view the deceased. Many individuals feel that cremation eliminates the possibility of funeral rituals and visitations, which makes them hesitant to opt for it. At Affordable Funeral & Cremation, our mission is to dispel this myth. A visitation is conceivable, and the following information can help you prepare:

1. Embalming Is Possible

Before cremation, families can choose to embalm the body to halt decay for a couple of days. If you need to postpone the visiting service for several days to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to pay their respects to the decedent, simply inform the funeral home director so that they will take care of the rest.

2. Private Visitation

A personal visitation with a few close family members is simple to arrange. No embalming is necessary because the visitation can take place within several hours of death. Funeral houses can make such preparations quickly, eliminating the need to forgo a brief visit.

3. It Is Not Always About Seeing The Body

There is no requirement that a body is present during the visitation. Cremation turns the body into ashes, which can be preserved in urns indefinitely. You can schedule a memorial ceremony a few days later to allow everyone the opportunity to pay their final respects to the departed.

There are various possible solutions. All that is required is to discuss your requirements with the funeral director, and he will provide you with all the necessary information regarding your situation. If you want to know about our services, don't hesitate to contact us at Affordable Funeral & Cremation today. Our team is here to provide you with the information you need.
