What We Do | Tri-City Crematory

What does “Direct Cremation” mean? 

Families are overwhelmed with grief at the time of loss.  Direct Cremation simplifies and removes all time constraints, allowing families to grieve and breathe without being rushed.  You never have to leave the comfort of your own home.  Whether it be pre-planning or an immediate need we come to you.

Direct cremation is all about choice.  When a family member chooses direct cremation, this does not mean there will be no Funeral Service, Celebration of Life or Memorial.  It simply means the “direct cremation” is the only paid service the Funeral Home/Crematory will be charging the family. 

Most of us have family, friends or clergy that would be honored to coordinate a Funeral Service, Celebration of Life,  Memorial or a family gathering to honor the loved one at no cost to your family.  On the contrary for a fee, the family can rent space at a funeral home of choice.  It’s about personal preference and what your loved one would want.

We all work very hard to leave an inheritance to our children and loved ones.  Direct Cremation puts the insurance money back with the beneficiaries, where it belongs. 

Don’t wait, have these tough conversations now so your loved ones know your wishes.
