When a loved one in your family passes and you decide to proceed with cremation services you will choose a funeral home that will work on your behalf and then you will start to make plans with them. Funeral homes have been through the planning process hundreds of times and they know just what you need to help you through this process. They have even put together packages for you that include everything you have to have to make everything easier on you. When you choose a cremation package, even if it’s quite basic, rest assured that your loved one is going to get everything they need. You can add whatever you want to the package, but at least you know the basics are covered. Here are the things that basic cremation service packages include.
The first thing your loved one will need is transportation from the place of their death to the funeral home’s facilities.

The funeral home includes that with the cremation package so you don’t have anything to worry about by way of your loved one’s transport. They will get what they need and be under professional care as soon as you select the funeral home to help.
Once your loved one is in good hands, you can slow down a bit and start to compile the documents that are needed for the final service process. You will have to have a death certificate, for example, no matter what you choose. And for cremation, there are consent forms and other things as well. There are also be permits and things that the provider will completely take care of for you and for everything else, they are there to help guide you through the documents needed.
This is the actual service of taking your loved one’s body and turning them into an ash-like form through flame and high heat in the crematory. This is also certified crematory operators who are very careful with your loved one’s identification, any requests you had for the process, and with your loved one’s dignity overall. You can have peace of mind that they are treated with care the whole time.
