What If I Want An Unconventional Funeral Service
Traditional funeral services are straightforward and easy to organize, but many feel they don't offer the solace family members need in this difficult time. At Tindall Funeral Home, we encourage people to explore different options and customize the experience as much as they like. There’s no need for you to follow a standard plan or process. Here’s a look at some of the options available to you:
Cremation is an ancient funeral ritual. It has been practiced in the east for thousands of years and has recently become popular in the west. This option is more affordable than traditional funerals, often costing around 1/3rd of a full burial. The body is cremated in a crematorium, and the ashes are given to the family members in an urn. You can scatter the ashes, bury them, or keep them on your mantle.
2. Gateway Funeral
This is a highly personalized experience and involves a small group of intimate friends or family. You can hold the ceremony at a unique location away from your hometown and honor your loved one with a special send-off. You can choose a site that your deceased loved one liked to visit often or would have wanted to visit.
3. Green Burials
Most people are rightfully concerned about the environment and want to do their part in reducing pollution. That’s why green burials have become very popular in recent years. Not only are these burials good for the environment, but they are also more affordable. You don't embalm the body and use biodegradable caskets for the burial. It ensures no harsh chemicals enter the ground.
