What should I consider when making plans for a cremation?

You might want to consider the following points when making plans for a cremation:
  • If you would like to have a funeral service before the cremation, where would you like that service to take place?
  • If you would like to have a memorial service after the cremation, when and where would you like that service to take place?
  • If you will be burying or entombing cremated remains, would you like there to be a service around the interment?
If you're planning on burying the cremated remains (either in a cemetery, in a columbarium or in another location) you can also have a service around the interment, called a graveside service.
