Funeral and Cremation Service Trends
The needs and expectations of the families we serve are ever evolving. These days, more and more families are moving away from the traditional funeral and electing instead to plan increasingly personalized final goodbyes. Whether it is a direct cremation, cremation with memorial service or entirely original celebration of life ceremony, we are able to meet the needs of every family. Because we know that families are always interested in exploring the latest funeral service trends we've responded with funeral service options tailored to these new expectations.
When it comes to Winnipeg funeral planning, Neil Bardal is a leader in providing the latest funeral service options and allowing families the flexibility to choose whichever type of service works best for them. Two generations ago, traditional funerals (visitation, funeral service, and service at the cemetery) were common. It was what everyone expected. Now, the most popular funeral service option is cremation, chosen by over two thirds of North American families each year.
As the demand for cremation services increased, there has been a shift in the types of services available. Many more families are choosing cremation and holding a memorial service afterwards. Family members and friends still came together to pay their respects to the deceased and find emotional support but they did so in less formal ways. The cremation service has become more popular because it is simple, affordable and offers families the ability to personalize the ceremony and the mourning period in general.
Another funeral service option, the celebration of life service, has become quite popular because there are no limits to the how, where, and when the life of a loved one can be celebrated. Instead of mourning the deceased, families who choose this funeral service option generally want a heavily personalized and positive memorial for their loved one.
