Effects of Funeral Arrangements
A ceremony that takes place after someone dies, usually including a religious ceremony, and the formal process of taking the body to the place where it is buried or cremated.
1.Cremation: Cremation, which is often more affordable and flexible than traditional and burial options, has risen in popularity in recent years. Cremation is a method of body disposal that serves as an alternative to traditional burial in a coffin or casket. Placed in a cremation container, the remains are incinerated in an industrial furnace called a cremation chamber and reduced to basic chemical compounds like gases, ashes and mineral fragments, which are called cremains. Cremains pose no health risk and are generally returned to the deceased’s family who will either keep them in an urn or another special container or enter them at a memorial site or crematory.
2.Traditional Funeral: The traditional funeral, usually includes a viewing or visitation and formal funeral service, use of a hearse to transport the body to the funeral site and cemetery, and burial, entombment, or cremation of the remains. It is generally the most expensive type of service. In addition to the funeral home's basic services fee, costs often include embalming and dressing the body; rental of the funeral home for the viewing or service; and use of vehicles to transport the family if they don't use their own and also the costs of a casket, cemetery plot or crypt and other funeral goods and services.
3.Burial: The body is buried shortly after death, usually in a simple container. No viewing or visitation is involved. A memorial service may be held at the graveside or later. Direct burial usually costs less than the "traditional" full-service funeral. Costs include the funeral home's basic services fee, as well as transportation and care of the body, the purchase of a casket or burial container and a cemetery plot or crypt. If the family chooses to be at the cemetery for the burial, the funeral home often charges an additional fee for a graveside service.
