Cremation, while increasing in popularity, is still a practice that raises questions from those who have lost a loved one. With 50 years of experience in funeral services, Jeremiah C. Gaffney's Funeral Home Inc. of Inwood, NY can answer all your questions.
Whether you choose cremation, or a traditional, earth burial, you will receive compassionate, hardworking service from our Inwood, NY business.
Q: Is cremation a substitute for a funeral?
No, cremation is an alternative to earth burial or entombment for the body's final disposition and often follows a traditional funeral service. In fact, according to FTC figures, direct cremation occurred in only 3% of deaths.
Q: So, I've decided on cremation. Can I still have a funeral or a viewing?
Yes, quite often some sort of viewing precedes the actual cremation process. Our staff can assist you with the necessary information for a funeral with a cremation following or a memorial service.
