Does Your Local Funeral Home Handle Cremation?

By John Roetker

Cremation has shown a steady increase as a method of final disposition over the years. A full service funeral home will handle cremation.

The actual process of cremation is performed in a crematory. A funeral home may not have a crematory on premises. However, if a funeral home offers cremation service, it will have access to a local crematory.

As an example, we do not have a crematory on premises, but we do handle cremation through an agreement with our Wilbert Vault dealer in Streator, Illinois, located fourteen miles south of Ottawa.

For Catholics, there may be some confusion about cremation. Cremation is allowed by the Catholic Church. However, the ashes of the deceased must be properly buried. Scattering the ashes or keeping them in an urn at a home or other location is not allowed.

Regardless of your faith, you should check with your clergy to make sure that your loved one's disposition is within your faith's guidelines.

Even though a loved one's eventual disposition is cremation, there can still be a traditional visitation. After the visitation, and any memorial service, the remains would then be taken to the crematory.

There are various other options available to families choosing cremation in regard to services and memorialization. There are also options to consider for urns as well as cremation caskets. We welcome all questions about cremation.

If this is the type of service that you are considering for your loved one, or as a pre-arrangement for yourself, you can get answers to your questions from your local funeral home director.

John Roetker owns and operates Gladfelter Funeral Home in Ottawa, Illinois. John has 36 years of experience in the funeral industry, and welcomes questions that deal with the services that funeral homes provide. Most obvious are wake or visitation services, embalming, caskets, and cremation. John also addresses questions about pre-arrangement of funeral services, also known as pre-need.

If you have a question about these, or an issue more specific to your situation, you can contact John by email at gladfelter@hughes.net, by phone at (815) 433-0097, or you can visit their website at http://www.gladfelterfuneralhome.com.
