The First Decision: Burial or Cremation?
This is one of the major decisions which must be made when a death occurs and it usually depends on a variety of things. For example, if the family has traditionally chosen burial in previous generations, they may again decide to choose earth burial, simply because the family own plots together in a local cemetery.
And sometimes, one or more of the family members may not like the idea of cremation and choose burial. For more information on our burial services, click here.
Cremation, as you may well know, is the accelerated reduction of the remains to ash, traditionally through the process of heat and fire. If you’re considering cremation, we suggest you take the time to learn more here.
We encourage all families to consider whichever option suits them best at the time of need. Should you have any questions, feel free to call a NHFDA member funeral home. They will be pleased to share their knowledge and expertise with you.
