direct cremationWhat can we do with the cremated remains?

As I mentioned earlier, there is versatility in what you can do with cremated remains.  You can inter a cremation urn in a cemetery plot or niche, keep an urn at home, scatter the remains, or create a cremation artifact such as a cremation diamond, glass paperweight, bird bath, or memorial reef ball, to name but a few!

The deceased had no life insurance – is there any help with cremation costs?

Sadly, there is little financial aid that supports families struggling with funeral costs.  Most counties have a budget for indigent funerals, but this is generally for those who truly are indigent.  Some counties do have limited funds to help low-income families with cremation costs, but this can vary county by county.  Often, the most basic funeral services will be supported in these cases, with limited control over what happens.

Remember – An affordable direct cremation from DFS Memorials can be arranged for $1,095 in St Petersburg.

End of life services and experiences are something most of us choose not to reflect upon until we are suddenly faced with dealing with it. I have been contributing comprehensive and independent resources for families that explain how the funeral industry operates, and the laws that govern funeral practices.
