When money is an issue or the typical funeral arrangements are not suitable for your family’s wishes, direct cremation services offer an affordable option. Unless added as additional paid services, formalities such as visitation and memorial services are not arranged and instead, cremation occurs shortly after the death.
Your funeral director of First Memorial Ottawa will meet with you to complete the necessary paperwork and authorizations to register the death, secure the death certificate and cremation permit. From there, your funeral director will arrange the transfer from the place of death to the funeral home and direct cremation or cemetery as required.
