Can I Have A Cremation Service With A Visitation?

Cremation is a choice that many prefer and consider in their plans whether pre or post funeral planning and there are many options to consider, particularly if you want to combine this with a visitation. Visitations offer you the chance to say goodbye and many find this offers a sense of closure that can make it a little easier while grieving.

Firstly, cremation only providers can help with costs (in some cases) however you are very limited by what they can offer. Generally speaking they provide no funeral solutions and do not provide visitation opportunities, which can be very upsetting, particularly if you did not have the ability to say goodbye to your loved one before or after they passed.

Talk to Your Funeral Home Service Staff

Traditional funeral homes vary and while some may have a small visitation room, others may not offer this service so this is something you need to ask and consider, particularly with cremation services.

We, on the other hand, offer the opportunity for a private goodbye with your loved one, regardless of the cremation option and we will allow you to  have a private farewell with your loved one and help you to grieve, even if you haven’t planned a service. Typically, a visitation alongside a funeral service allows the whole family to visit your loved one prior to the service in our visitation rooms to say goodbye privately before other guests start to arrive. If you would like a cremation only service then usually immediate family (normally 2-3 people) can visit for their private goodbye before the cremation. 

No matter what you choose, be safe in the knowledge that we will show your loved one dignity and respect and help make your visit as easy as possible, offering you a chance to say goodbye regardless of the services you choose, unlike most other providers available.
