How to Choose a Crematory August 24, 2016

If you or a loved one has made the decision to be cremated, there is yet another important decision to be made. That is who should handle your final arrangements. Choosing a crematory is critical in ensuring your wishes are carried out in a dignified manner that you can depend upon. Here are some suggestions on how to choose a crematory.

  • Seek a Private Crematory – At Fares J. Radel Funeral Homes and Crematory, we have our own private crematory. In fact, it is the only private crematory in the Greater Cincinnati area. This is important because once we accept a loved one’s remains, they stay in our possession through the entire process. This assures the remains you receive are genuine.
  • Understand that Experience Makes a Difference – The more experience a crematory has, the more likely it is they can handle a cremation and final services properly. At Fares J. Radel Funeral Homes and Crematory, we have over 140 years of experience serving families in Cincinnati and the Northern Kentucky area. We have assisted in final services that have ranged from the very traditional to the extremely unusual. Experience makes difference when choosing a crematory.
  • Carefully Look into what Facilities and Services they Offer – Some crematories offer limited facilities and services. Make sure any crematory you select has the facilities and services that are important to you. At Fares J. Radel, we offer services like video tributes, dignified memorial services, visitations, a wide selection of urns and other containers and jewelry. We can include flowers and other services with our complete cremation services. Our Cincinnati facility has a modern banquet room and catering options. We are the only crematory in the United States with an observation room, styled in a living room setting, with Italian granite. Fares J. Radel Funeral Homes and Crematory has always been progressive in providing progressive and varied services.
