4 Common Questions About Cremation

Create a modern memorial for your loved one’s remains.

When it comes to funeral services and memorial services, many people have questions that are difficult to ask. At Bohlender Funeral Chapel, our team is here to assist families and individuals through the death of a loved one with compassionate, informative services. Here are four common questions our team receives about cremation services.  

How Should the Body Be Displayed at the Funeral?

Cremation can happen before or after any funeral services. If having your loved one’s body present at the memorial service, you may rent a casket to use during the ceremony and viewing. Once the funeral is complete, the cremation service will take place. If viewing is not your top priority, you may choose to display the urn along with photos and mementos for the funeral service.

Does the Individual Wear Clothes During Cremation?

Yes, cremation can take place with the individual wearing a certain set of clothing. If your family chose to host a viewing or traditional funeral, the individual will usually be cremated in the clothing that they were displayed in unless other arrangements have been made. You can work directly with our team to decide on clothing for your loved one if there are specific wishes that need to be honored.

How Long After Cremation Are the Ashes Ready?

This depends on our current capabilities, your funeral arrangements, and other factors that are determined during the planning process. Our team will let you know what to expect during the planning process, but we are also always happy to answer any questions you may have at any time.

What Can You Put In a Coffin for Cremation?

When it comes to keepsakes and important items, you have a wide range of options that can be placed in a casket for cremation. Some common items we see families place with loved ones for cremation include jewelry, letters, photos, soft toys or keepsakes, religious items like rosaries, or even the ashes of another loved one. Our team will provide guidance on items we can place with your loved one during the planning process.
