Can I have a visitation and viewing if I choose cremation?


Thu, Dec 22nd, 2011
Posted in Ask the Expert

The ways that individuals choose to plan their funeral have changed so much in recent years. People often have questions about cremation.  You can choose to have a visitation with a viewing, followed by a traditional funeral service, and then be cremated. At our funeral home nearly half of the families who choose cremation choose this option. People often see the value of having a viewing and getting that chance to say their good-byes.

     The other option, of course, is to have a cremation first, followed by a memorial service. In either case most people still choose to have their cremated body buried in a cemetery. This allows family members to have a place to pay their respects. At Hoff Funeral Homes we operate our own crematory; this insures families that your loved one never leaves our care. With all of the options available to people today, we strongly advise people to pre-plan their funerals to ensure that their wishes will be carried out.
