Absolutely! With cremation, you actually have more options than with an in-ground burial. You can choose to have a funeral service provided the body’s on display.
After the funeral service and the body is cremated, you can still have a memorial service with or without the remains present.
Keep in mind that if you have a viewing before the actual cremation, embalming may be required.
Memorial services for cremation are flexible and can be held either at a funeral home, the crematory chapel, a church, a restaurant, a hotel reception room, your loved one’s home or some other location that has been meaningful to your loved one.
