Once a loved one has departed you can choose whether you want a burial or a cremation. If it has already been planned for, then you just adhere to that personís last wishes and then plan the funeral accordingly.
Accordingly, the apt cemetery for carrying out a burial or a cremation will be planned by the funeral house. And as a result, before completing the final rites, Blacktown City Funerals will ask you what other related services you would choose before the actual funeral is carried out which is a burial or a cremation.
You can opt for a private viewing session, wherein friends and family members get to say goodbye one last time and pay their respects or grieve privately. The person is dressed and presented well and goodbyes are in place before the final funeral service is carried out.
In case you have planned a burial, then you can have a service right at the graveside. This could be before or after the burial or before or after the funeral service.
If you have opted for a memorial, or have gone in for a permanent memorial in honour of the deceased, then a service is held at that spot and after which the ashes are placed in an urn, and sealed in that memorial permanently.When a permanent memorial is ready, families sometimes hold a service to mark the occasion and place the ashes
inside and seal them in.
At times, based on the deceased wishes or the familyís decision, families want to or have to, based on religious beliefs, scatter the remains of their loved ones. And here it is the ashes. Accordingly, if the family has a place in mind, our funeral home will enquire about whether it is possible or permissions are made available.
Typically, most times, after a funeral service is done, the family holds a wake or a gathering of friends and family at a place of their choice. The wake is planned the way the family wants it. If the grieving family wants a wake in memory of the deceased, Blacktown City Funerals will take care of it for you. The venue, place and the type of wake can be planned on your behalf and you are not hassled in your moment of grief.
