From complete cremation services with visitation and memorial services to simple cremations to cremation niches, the Cremation Society of Iowa wants you to be aware of the variety of affordable cremation options that are available throughout the Des Moines, and central Iowa areas. Keep reading to learn more about these cremation service options.
Full Cremation Service
Full Traditional Services are an option that is available for individuals in central Iowa. Many of our families do not realize that they can have a full, traditional service prior to the cremation being performed. You have the option of renting a casket and holding a visitation the evening before or prior to the ceremony at the funeral home or church. Our funeral homes would perform the embalming and have the casket open for the viewing. After the visitation and service, we perform the cremation services. This is a good option for families when their loved ones wished to have cremation, but prefer a traditional way to pay their respects.
For individuals in the greater Des Moines area, Iowa Funeral Planning’s trained, professional counselors can help you work through your funeral planning process.
Cremation with a Memorial Service
Find comprehensive memorial service options in central with Iowa Funeral Planning. Unlike other service options, cremations with memorial services are performed prior to the funeral being held. Therefore, at the service, there is no open casket, which is sometimes considered traditional. With the option of performing a cremation first, you may still request a memorial service at your place of worship or the funeral home, with the focal point being the urn that is accompanied by photographs of your loved one. You may also have a memorial gathering prior to the ceremony or the evening before.
