What is a direct cremation?

This is a term that all funeral homes use to describe when a family selects just cremation, and does not need other services from a Funeral Home. For instance, a traditional funeral home can offer staffing at a memorial service or rooms for visitation. A direct cremation allows families the opportunity to create their own story without influence of a Funeral Home. A direct cremation can be described by our 5 step process.

Our 5-step process

  • Contact UsCalling or emailing us should be your first step. This communication can be made 24 hours a day, we are always on call to answer any question. At this first call we are able to provide the specific service that you need, whether you are pre-planning for yourself, or you have experienced a death in the family, this communication is necessary to help guide us to provide the best service possible. We understand that making this first communication is not easy, you have gone through a lot of decision making to get to this point, our goal is to not confuse or make this process harder than it already it.
  • Making the connectionIf your loved one has passed away, at this point it time to make the connection between the place of death and the funeral home. In most cases the family will have to “release” their loved one into our care. If families do not have the contact information for that release we will be able to provide them with the contact information. This is a service that is provided 24hrs a day. This service can also occur through our online format. If after you speak with our director and your family would like to plan a cremation online this is when a family would start the process. Our funeral director will be available to help at any time.
  • Meet with usMeeting with us can be virtual through the website or at our location. We are located conveniently near Forsyth Medical Center at 2901 Lyndhurst Ave., Winston-Salem, NC, 27103. At first contact we will set a time to meet or help walk you through the website. When we do meet, we will go over the necessary documents. The documents that we will go over are the cremation authorization, the death certificate information, and the financial contract. Beyond these documents you will be able to select urns, keepsakes, or any other merchandise. At this point your loved one is in our care and a viewing can be scheduled if requested. These meetings usually last under an hour.
  • Cremation servicesFor the cremation to occur the documents that are addressed in the meeting need to be completed. Identification is optional, however our staff always go through a multi-step identification process with potential cremations. The cremation occurs at our partner Salem Funeral and Cremation Service and their dedicated cremation staff go through their own checklist prior to cremation. Our goal is to get these steps done as efficiently as possible, always following protocol.
  • Receiving the urnWe will contact you when the urn is ready for pick up. These urns will be picked up at our location on Lyndhurst Dr. If your family would like us to send the urn via US Postal Service will can do this as well. If also the family has chosen to expedite the death certificates, these certificates could be with the urn as well.
