Cremation Options

Depend on the Cremation Specialists

white lilyWhether for religious, environmental or personal reasons, an increasing number of families are choosing cremation over the more traditional burial. Cremation also serves as an affordable alternative to the typical funeral service, which often includes costly caskets and pricey cemetery plots.

Regardless of your particular reason, the expert staff at Ammen Family Cremation & Funeral Care will explain the various cremation options available and address your specific concerns and preferences.

Questions about cremation:

Many families have a lot of questions and concerns about cremation. Here are answers to some of the most common questions we receive from our clients:

What exactly is cremation?

Cremation is a clean and ecologically safe process in which a body is reduced to its basic elements.

Where is your crematory located and who performs the cremations?

Space Coast Crematory is located within our Ammen Family Cremation & Funeral Care in Melbourne, where we have state certified crematory operators on staff.

How do we know we'll receive the correct remains after the cremation?

We follow a three-part identification system to ensure that each family receives the correct remains. This system identifies the deceased before, during and after cremation. The use of this procedure along with our policy of performing only one cremation at a time guarantees that no mistakes are made. Additionally, our crematory is available for your inspection.

Is it necessary to purchase a casket or pay for the embalming process?

No casket is needed and embalming is not necessary for cremation. A simple alternative container can be used in place of a casket. Before cremation, private family viewings are made available without the expense of a casket or embalming. However, we do recommend embalming for a public viewing or funeral service before cremation, and we offer an affordable rental casket for these types of arrangements.
