Cremation is usually less expensive than burial, and enables you to keep the cremated remains, (often referred to as ashes), and can give you more choice after the funeral for a memorial event. It also avoids the need to find a suitable burial plot.
When choosing a cremation, you can decide on a church service followed by a short committal ceremony at the crematorium, or just a service at the crematorium.
Due to the popularity of cremation, a specific time is allocated to each service, leading some families to feel that they are in a queue, especially if they are met by the next group of mourners when leaving the service. A double slot can be booked to give you more time, although this would involve an extra fee. Alternatively, you can choose a service in a church with a separate memorial service elsewhere, and just attend the crematorium for the committal.
