Because We Care - January Edition: Cremation is a widely growing trend.  Though there are many options for cremation services,  families often choose to have a full service  prior to cremation.  In choosing this option it’s important to know the facts when it comes to selecting a casket for visitation.  A family may purchase a cremation casket or make use of a rental casket, but when renting a casket one should verify that the lining is completely replaceable.  A wooden rental casket often provides you with a 2-in-1 value where the cremation container makes up the interior of the casket.  After the service the interior is removed and covered for the cremation process.  Note that the interior  of this type of casket is replaced prior to each funeral.  If you choose a metal rental casket you may run the risk of having your loved one  placed on the same interior as a previous funeral service(s) with only the pillow being replaced and may be sold for full services as new. Renting a metal casket also forces a family to purchase a separate cremation container, adding to the total cost of the funeral.
