While direct cremation means that there are no body preparations, no viewing, and no funeral services of any kind, that doesn’t mean that you can’t pair it with a memorial service. If you’re going with a direct cremation versus a regular cremation, then you will likely have to plan the memorial for afterward the body disposition. The reason for this is that a direct cremation takes place almost immediately after death. Once the necessary paperwork has been completed and the death certificate has been secured, the deceased will be cremated. With a regular cremation, you can, if you wish, hold off on the body disposition for a short while. This might allow you enough time to hold a memorial before the cremation.
