TIME TO PRE-PLAN YOUR CREMATION

Why Pre-Planning?
Planning your Cremation arrangements ahead of time ensures that your friends and family avoid stress and confusion at the time of your passing. Creating your funeral arrangements ahead of time provides you with peace of mind knowing your wishes will be taken care of, allowing you to continue living your life to the fullest.
Call us today at (614) 947-1450 when you're ready to discuss your unique planning arrangements.

Let Your Loved One Know Your Wishes
When you choose to arrange your memorial tribute and needs, you allow yourself enough time to take a seat and consider how you want to be remembered. When you let your loved ones know how you'd like your celebration of life to be implemented, if you want a traditional burial or cremation, and where you want to be interred, your loved ones can carry out these plans in the way that you chose.

Obviously, after your passing, your family members and closest friends will grieve. However, by leaving them with funeral arrangements which states your wishes, you can alleviate some of that stress and grief by allowing them to honor your life in the way you would've wanted.

Keep Your Family Safe from Financial Pressure
Through a thorough arrangement process completed with a pre-payment plan, you can protect your family from unforeseen financial inflation and costs. By choosing to cover your expenses before the time comes, your family can concentrate on what truly matters: celebrating your life.

Take Control of Your Life
Planning your end-of-life wishes isn't a depressing process; it's one that frees you and your family from worry and unnecessary stress. Arranging your memorial service ahead of time helps to ensure that your family and friends know your wishes and needs so that the proper proceedings can be carried out when the appropriate time comes.

Are You Ready to Plan Ahead?
Pre-planning your arrangements is a simple process. When you sit down with one of our Cremation professionals, we will discuss and compile your plans, and put them on file in a safe location within our office. Planning your funeral arrangements with Greater Columbus Cremation Services means that you'll have a knowledgeable and friendly expert to help you every step of the way.

In order to consider all of your options and make the best choices for you and your family, it may be helpful to ask yourself lots of questions about how you 'd like the cremation to be. By looking at the range of choices available to you, you can hopefully come to clear a decision about they type of plans you'd like to make. Then you can begin to learn about the cremation products that you'll need to purchase to facilitate the cremation.

Types Of Services Around Cremation
As with burial, you can have any type of service you'd like around a cremation. Many people incorrectly believe that choosing cremation means that you can't have a traditional funeral. In fact, cremations commonly occur after a traditional funeral. Alternatively, you can choose to have a direct cremation (with no service beforehand) followed by a memorial service at a later date.

If you would like to have a funeral service before the cremation, where would you like that service to happen?
If you would like to have a commemoration after the cremation, when and where would you like that service to take place?
If you will be burying or entombing cremated remains, would you like there to be a service around the interment?
If you're considering burying the cremated remains (either in a cemetery, in a columbarium, or in another location) you can also have a service around the interment, called a graveside service.
