It may not be surprising that one of the most frequently asked questions we get at the Cremation Society of Northern Kentucky is “What is a cremation society?” You may also wonder what are the benefits of using them, what services are offered and how do they differ from a regular crematory? Since part of our mission as a cremation society is to promote the benefits of cremation, we are pleased to provide some answers.
A cremation society is a group of people who join in membership to ensure their wishes to be cremated will be carried out upon their death. The organization could be local, regional or national, and they operate using the highest standards in the industry. A membership in a cremation society allows members to put together detailed plans for their cremation including expenses, final wishes and any other personal touches they may wish to include. The society itself provides access to services for cremations under the high standards of the society.
How Does A Cremation Society Differ from a Crematory?
A crematory is generally a free-standing facility that may or may not be connected with a funeral home. A cremation society is a group of like-minded people who dispel myths about cremation and promote it as an after-death option.
