If you decide on cremation, you can choose between a full cremation service or a memorial service (with or without the ashes present).
Many churches today have a Wall of Remembrance. It may be a good idea to postpone your memorial service until after the cremation, in order to have the interment of ashes taking place straight after the service. You can discuss your wishes with your Funeral Planner.
You may wish to have the deceased in a coffin present at a church/chapel service or another location before the actual cremation will take place. The service is then concluded with all family members, friends and those attending leaving the church at the end of the service, to gather outside around the coffin/hearse. A final committal is done outside and an opportunity is given for paying your last respects. This is the final moment for saying your goodbyes, and as the hearse leaves the premises with all those attending watching, it brings some sort of closure to the ceremony.
Whatever you decide, we can take care of the necessary arrangements for you.
The cremation is then done privately, normally not attended by family members. We make use of the services of a private crematorium, Cremos Cremations cc situated in Randfontein.
You may choose to scatter the Ashes in a favourite place, inter them in an existing grave or place them in a Wall of Remembrance. Visit our Pinterest Board for some creative ideas.
