Planning final services for anyone is downright hard. It can even feel next to impossible in certain situations. If you are considering cremation services in Las Vegas, NV, either for yourself as part of your pre-plans or for a loved one who has recently passed on, you may have a lot of questions about the details. Chances are, you haven’t planned many final services in the past—if any. These are some of the details you need to know to move forward with the plans that are right for you. 

 

Cremation Doesn’t Mean There Are No Services 

If you decide on cremation, you might assume that your decisions are complete and that’s all you need to do. However, there are service options that go along with cremation. You can, of course, go with direct cremation and have no services beforehand. You can also forego services after the cremation is complete. But you can also go the other direction and have a visitation and full funeral before cremation takes place. You could also have a memorial service, ash scattering ceremony, or any number of other things after the cremation occurs. Just because you are choosing cremation doesn’t mean you can’t have any services. In fact, many funeral homes will encourage services simply to give family the chance to honor their loved one in a special way. 

 

Costs Are Lower 

Perhaps you are considering cremation because you like the idea of scattering ashes instead of burying a casket. But you also need to know that the costs for this service are going to be lower. That makes the service itself very attractive to many families. If you have budget concerns, you don’t have to worry about them nearly as much. There’s no casket to purchase, no headstone to buy, no cemetery plot to reserve and so on. Those costs add up quickly, and with cremation, all you really have to have is the cremation process itself. You can add as much as you want around that service or keep things simple. 

 

The Decisions Are All Yours 

You should never feel like anyone is making decisions for you. The funeral home is there to present you with a variety of options. They might even make suggestions based on what they know about your family. But when you choose cremation, you get to dictate the services around the cremation, if any, and make all of the other decisions. The funeral home is simply there to implement those decisions once they are made.
