What You Need to Know About Cremation Caskets, Brooklyn, New York

Planning a funeral or memorial service for a loved one involves many details and prices that are demanding to keep up with. When cremation is being considered, the choice of casket helps determine the service and budget more clearly. Being there for their customers during this time of mourning is a top priority for the staff at Tri State Direct Cremation in Brooklyn, NY. Below, they share a brief guide to cremation caskets for your loved one’s service.

What Is a Cremation Casket?

cremationA cremation casket is a rigid, four-sided container made out of combustible material such as wood, bamboo, or wicker. It must be leak proof and contain no metal parts to safely cremate the remains. If you plan to hold an open or closed casket funeral prior to cremation, purchasing an elegant cremation casket is an easy option, as the remains would stay in the casket throughout the service and cremation process.

What Is an Alternative Casket?

An alternative casket is an inexpensive and simple casket made of cardboard or plywood. For those who want an affordable memorial service, direct cremation saves on costs for a traditional casket and transportation. This would involve cremating the body in an alternative casket before the memorial service. Those who want a funeral service but not the expense can opt to rent a casket instead. After the service, the remains are transferred into an alternative casket for cremation, cutting expenses significantly.

When it comes to honoring the memory of your loved one, the cost of cremation caskets should be the least of your concerns. Tri State Direct Cremation hopes to lessen the burden of this difficult process by giving your loved one the memorial or funeral service they deserve. Call (347) 470-1515 for their 24/7 free consultation, or visit their website for more information on their services.
