Cremation is gaining popularity among many of our clients as an alternative to traditional funerals because of the lower cost and the greater freedom for personalized memorials. At Pray Funeral Home, Inc., we offer cremation services in Potterville, MI for both the deceased and for pre-planning one’s own services. In this article, we’ll look at a step-by-step guide to arranging cremation services with our experienced staff.

Step One – Arrange a Consultation

Immediately after a death in the family, stress and emotions are high and planning an event can be challenging. That’s why getting in touch with funeral homes quickly to let a veteran funeral director take control of the process is key. At your first meeting with our staff, we’ll discuss options and walk you through the process. We also take consultations with clients looking to pre-plan their own services for the future.

Step Two – Cremation or Full Package?

The next step is to decide what kind of cremation services you want for your memorial service or pre-planned services. We offer a basic cremation package where we take custody of the body and return ashes in an urn, which allows family members to plan their own remembrance services at home. We also offer full packages that offer all the amenities of a funeral with the assistance of our staff and our facilities after the cremation.

Step Three – Preparation and Visitation

For memorial services and immediate cremation, we’ll spring into action as soon as we get your call or hold your consultation. We’ll take custody of the body and prepare it for cremation, but before we put our cremators to work, we’ll give you and your family the chance for an intimate goodbye. As part of our cremation services packages, we offer private visitation at our facility before the cremation and memorial services.

Step Four – Choosing Your Urncremation services in Potterville, MI

Once the cremation process is complete, you’ll receive a basic urn containing the ashes. If you’ve chosen a package, you’ll also receive the urn of your choice from our extensive selection of Artisan, Heirloom, and Craftsman urns. These sturdy and beautiful urns are an ideal choice for a centerpiece for the mantle. We also offer options for dividing the ashes among family members, such as smaller urns or designer vials.

Step Five – Hosting the Memorial

After the cremation and choosing of the ceremonial urn, we’ll host a personalized memorial according to your specifications. This will have all the amenities of our funeral services and you’ll get full use of our extensive facilities. We can host everything from an intimate gathering to a full funeral and wake with a catered dinner brought in by a third party. At the conclusion of the service, the next of kin will receive the remains in the selected vessel.
