- Cremation Arrangements
- Burial of Remains
Whether you choose a cremation for personal or religious reasons it can be done in various ways to include your own wishes and that of a loved-one. Mosaic Funerals strive to deliver the most respectful, professional and innovative service to people of any religion, culture or tradition.
There are no set rules with cremations and it offers more choices than a traditional burial. It can be a simple “direct” or private cremation without anyone present or it could be elaborate with the coffin present at the church service. The cremation service can be arranged to include traditions such as a private viewing, a wake and a memorial service before or after the cremation.
After the cremation takes place, the remains of the loved one will be given to the family in an ash box or urn. Utmost care is taken during the cremation process. Strict laws are in place to ensure the family will only get the remains of their loved one. We will take care of all the arrangements on your behalf and help put into place everything you would like to have, even special requests such as the interment, scattering or burial of the remains in a niche, grave or special place of significance.
At an attended cremation, we would typically bring your loved one in a casket to the church, chapel or venue. The casket will be present during the sermon or memorial service. Depending on the church, chapel or venue the family can request that the casket be opened before, during or after the sermon or memorial service for the last viewing of the loved one to take place. After the sermon or memorial service, we will take the deceased, in the chosen casket, to the crematorium. This could be immediately or as per an arrangement at a given date or time.
At an unattended cremation, the deceased will not be brought to the church, chapel or venue. No casket will be present during the sermon or memorial service. A sermon or memorial service can be held for the loved one at church, chapel or venue. At no stage will the deceased be present at any of these events. The deceased will be taken to the crematorium in the chosen casket for the cremation to take place. This could be before or after the sermon or memorial service is held. Afterwards, the remains of the loved one will be handed to the family in an ash box or urn.
