Years ago, there was one factor that kept many Cincinnati families from considering cremation when they were planning a funeral. People believed that if they chose cremation, they could not have a funeral service that was meaningful and told the story of their loved one’s life. Of course, this is not true. Funeral traditions are constantly changing and evolving, and families are now discovering that cremation is a dignified form of commemoration, when you choose an experienced funeral home that cares about your family.

Personalizing a Cremation

As traditions change, we are always developing new and meaningful ways to honor and memorialize the life that was lived. Attitudes toward what is “appropriate” during a funeral have broadened, which means we can offer families new personalized choices and unique forms of tribute and remembrance. Our staff has vast knowledge of religious customs and will guide you as needed. We’re here to help in every way so families don’t feel overwhelmed by their options. The best place to start is by making a list of your loved one’s interests, hobbies, accomplishments, as well as faith and cultural traditions.

Exploring Cremation Service Options

In the past, some Ohio families viewed cremation as only a way to save money on funeral costs. It’s true that direct cremation is available, with no memorial service and no tribute to the person who has died. But now, families who do choose cremation are discovering that dignified and touching services are available to help them honor and celebrate their loved one. Many experts say it’s also an important step in the grieving process. When you choose cremation, you may still have a visitation, memorial service, traditional funeral service, graveside observance, and many other comforting and healing rituals. You can also personalize cremation services with vaults, caskets, and urns that bear emblems and engravings denoting religious affiliation, hobbies, special interests, and military or civic service.

Considering Cremation?

When you choose cremation, ask funeral home staff these important questions:

1.) What kind of memorial services are available?

2.) What are the choices for personalization and telling the story of the life that has been lived?

3.) Most importantly, what measures does the funeral home take to guarantee the dignity of the process? Do they own and operate their own crematory so they can promise you the cremated remains you received are definitively those of your loved one?

Spring Grove will remain the most trusted funeral home and crematory servicing Cincinnati families. And when it comes to cremation, that’s the best assurance of all. Contact our caring staff to learn more.
