Can I Have a Cremation and a Visitation?

Visitation is a way to say final goodbyes and find some solace. The grieving family and loved ones don’t want to miss the last chance to see the deceased person. Many people believe that cremation doesn’t allow room for funeral services or visitations and hesitate to choose the option. At Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home, we aim to dispel this misconception. It is possible to have a visitation and here’s what you need to know about it:

1. Embalming is possible

The body can be embalmed before the cremation process to stall decomposition for a few days. If you need to delay the visitation service for a few days to ensure everyone gets the chance to visit the decedent, just mention it to the funeral home director and they will handle the rest.

2. Private visitation

A private visitation with just a few family members is quick and easy to organize. There’s no need to embalm the body as the visitation can be carried out within a few hours from the death. Funeral homes can make these quick arrangements so there’s no need to skip a small visitation.

3. It is not always about seeing the body

You don’t need to have a body present at the visitation. Cremation reduces the body to ashes and the ashes can be stored in urns for as long as needed. You can hold a memorial service several days down the line so everyone has the chance to visit the decedent and say their last goodbyes.

There are several other solutions available. All you need to do is discuss the requirements with your funeral director. If you want to know about cremations or want to arrange a visitation, contact us at Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home. You can call us at (928) 855-4949 or (928) 753-2555 for use this form to contact us.
