Unattended Cremation

For those that do not feel a traditional funeral ceremony is right for them or their loved ones

There are many reasons why you may feel that an unattended cremation would

be right for you or your loved one, however it’s important to talk to your

family and friends to let them know you’re considering this type of cremation.

what else they can do to say goodbye.
