What Is Direct Cremation?
“Direct Cremation” is an industry term that often confuses consumers.
Even so, the concept of Direct Cremation is very simple.
Direct Cremation means cremation without a viewing or funeral service before cremation.
Of course, nothing is preventing a family from having a memorial service, a celebration of life, or a funeral service before cremation, just without the deceased present.
So, when a funeral or cremation service provider tries to make it seem like they are doing something special or unusual by using the words “direct cremation”, call them out.
They are merely using a complicated term for cremation which is the simplest service provided.
