The choice between burial and cremation is a very personal one and may be influenced by many factors, including family tradition, religion or the wishes of the person who has died.
If you choose a cremation service, one of the first things to decide is where you'd like to hold it. You might want to hold it the crematorium or, if you prefer, you can hold the service in another place, like a church, and then have a shorter service called a ‘committal’ at the crematorium.
Costs of cremation
The charge for the cremation will vary depending on where you live. You can find this out here, or alternatively you can ask your local funeral director who will be able to provide you with this cost.
There are restrictions about what may be cremated with the person who has died, for example materials such as some metals aren't allowed. If you would particularly like an item to stay with your loved one you can speak to your local funeral director who'll be able to advise you.
