When you look at cremation services in Westbury, NY, either for yourself as you plan in advance, or for a loved one who has passed on, the first thing you are going to do, most likely, is choosing a package. Cremation packages are generally pretty basic. It is nice to start with a package because they include everything you have to have for the process. You know that by buying a package, your loved one (or you in the future) will have everything necessary for the job. However, you also have the opportunity to add on anything you want. Here are some of those add-on options, some of which are very popular.
The urn is probably the most popular add-on option. Cremation packages come with simple containers for ashes after cremation, but many families want something more special for their loved ones. They might want something that can be on display at a memorial service, something that makes scattering easier later, or even something that they can keep in their home on display in a place of honor. Whatever functions the family wants, there are urns to match and it’s often a nice thing to add on to the basic services.
If you have decided to bury the person in question, a vault is another thing you will likely add to the package. Many cemeteries require them to protect the urn you have chosen (and your loved one inside it) as well as to protect the ground so there aren’t a lot of divots and sinkholes as things settle in the future.
A Memorial Service
You can have whatever kind of memorial service you want for your loved one after the cremation process is completed. But you can get package add ons that cover the memorial service for you. It can be convenient to have professional help with that service and if you want to have the memorial in the funeral home, the experts can implement any plans you want to put into place. You can have a memorial service in a family home, in a park, or anywhere else, but if you want funeral home help, adding the service onto the cremation package is one option to consider.
The packages you will see for cremation services in Westbury, NY are all-inclusive, which means they include everything you have to have. Your loved one, for example, will get transportation from the place of their death to the funeral home’s facilities. They will get the care they need in the meantime.

But those packages, will they are sufficient, may not include everything you want for a loved one, or for yourself if you are planning ahead.
