Planning a funeral in Denver, CO
In Colorado, cremation is favored over burial by a relatively large margin, and the funeral options in Denver reflect this. You’ll find many Denver funeral homes that focus on cremation. If you plan to cremate your loved one, as well, consider whether you want to use a funeral home simply for the cremation, or if you want their help organizing a viewing and/or memorial service, as well. If plan to organize your own memorial event separately (or if you don’t plan to have a memorial service), chances are that you’ll only need a direct cremation, which can save you thousands. When comparing funeral homes, be sure to enquire about this as an option.
Whether you choose cremation or burial, you may still want to purchase a cemetery plot, as there are specific plots for cremated remains. While there are only a few cemeteries within the Denver city limits, there are plenty of options if you’re willing to look a little outside the city. The Denver area is also full of beautiful places to scatter ashes.
