Cremation

Cremation Services

The choice of cremation is a popular and recognized option. For some, the choice of cremation allows for more flexibility when planning services. For others, it‘s because of their concern for the environment and not wanting to take up space in the earth. Whatever your reason, the choice of cremation is a personal one and the staff at Solimine Funeral Homes is here to provide a heartfelt and meaningful service.

 

Sometimes there is a misconception that a funeral service cannot occur when cremation is chosen. In fact, Cremation increases options for services. A service can take place with or without the body present. This service can be religious in nature or secular.

Cremation and Funerals

There is sometimes a misconception that a funeral service cannot take place when cremation is chosen. In fact, a funeral service can take place and there are several options to consider. A funeral can occur before the cremation process, a funeral can also take place after the cremation process with the cremated remains present, or a funeral can occur without anybody present. Funeral services can range from elaborate to simple, traditional to non-traditional and are personalized to reflect the life of the deceased. Following the viewing, service or ceremony, and eventual cremation, the cremated remains can be buried, properly scattered or returned to the family for safe keeping.

Immediate Cremation

Some families choose immediate cremation which is often times followed by a memorial service at a church, funeral home or other location that is chosen by the family. At Solimine Funeral Homes, we recommend that if you select an immediate cremation that you privately view the body as a family. Viewing of the deceased is a very important step in acknowledging that the death has occurred. If the viewing can be done in a matter of a few hours after the death, then embalming will not be necessary. If there is a longer delay (more than 8-12 hours) then embalming would be encouraged. If the viewing cannot be done within 48 hours, then embalming may be required.

Direct Cremation 

A direct cremation is when there is very limited or no ceremony or funeral services. The services provided by Solimine Funeral Homes are the removal and transportation of the deceased into our care.

Memorialization Options for Cremation

Memorialization provides a permanent, secure place for cremated remains to be placed, and for family members and friends to honor the lives of the deceased. Cremation allows families many choices for memorializing a loved one. Some of these options include: 

Outdoor Niches

The cremated remains of your loved one may be safely held in one of our many above ground columbarium niches.
